The Inter-Andean Dry Valleys are rain-shadow valleys and basins on the east Andean slope. This ecological region is characterized by deciduous forest and woodland with pronounced seasonality in rainfall. It is most extensive and contiguous in the central Andes, with disjunct and patchy areas in the northern Andes and Tarija.
