Three mountain ranges or ‘alturas’ shape the landscapes and influence the climate, life and agriculture of Cuba. In western Cuba, the Cordillera de Guaniguanico with the low mountain ranges of Sierra de los Órganos and Sierra del Rosario overlook Pinar del Rio Province. The low mountain range (with   El Salon Peak 563 meters and Pan de Guajaibon, 692 meters) unfolds before the eyes with its lush valleys, flat surfaced land and gorges. Amidst the western Cuban heights is Vinales Valley.  In west-central Cuba, stands the Sierra del Escambray uprising from the coast towards eastern Cuba. This mountain chain extends to the eastern Province of Cienfuegos and the neighbouring Villa Clara Province to end in the Santi Spiritus Province. A cool climate prevails in the highlands. The mist around the tops of the mountains gives an enchanting atmosphere to the surrounding environment. The third mountain range is made up of the Sierra Maestra, Cuchillas del Toa, Sierra de Purisa and Sierra de Cristal.  Sierra Maestra in the southeast of Cuba starts from the coast from Cabo Cruz towards Guantanamo Bay then merges with the other ranges to rule over the provinces of Granma, Santiago, Guantanamo and Holgin Provinces. The Nipe plateau stands in between the Sierra Maestra and the other mountain ranges.
