The latter, as regards its main chain, is on the northern coast of the Beagle Channel, in Tierra del Fuego, bounded on the north by the deep depression of Lake Fagnano and of Admiralty Sound.
As Admiralty Sound and Lake Fagnano bound the Cordillera to the north in Tierra del Fuego, so at the eastern side of the Cordillera in the southernmost part of the continent there is a longitudinal depression which separates the Andes from some independent ridges pertaining to a secondary parallel broken chain called the pre-Cordillera.
The eastern chain begins north of the equator at 6000 feet, gradually rises to the height of Nevado (14,146 feet), Pan de Azucar (12,140 feet), and in the Sierra Nevada de Cochi attains to peaks of 16,700 feet.
