The páramo is the ecosystem of the regions above the continuous forest line, yet below the permanent snowline. The páramo zone is the most interesting of the life zones of the Andes, since it shows to the highest degree, the struggle of plant and animal life against conditions of extreme cold temperature. This vegetation type is scattered along the crests of the highest mountain ranges or on isolated mountaintops between about 3000 meters (m) and 5000 m. Here on the flanks of the Culbiche mountain at +/- 3700 m.
