Environment and Location

The Aconcagua people inhabited Central Chile, from the Aconcagua River in the north to the Cachapoal River in the south, although they were concentrated in the Maipo and Mapocho river valleys. This region has a temperate climate and rises from sea level to 6000m in just over 100 km, from the Pacific Ocean to the peaks of the Andes Mountains.
