Altitude Training can be some of the greatest training out there, especially for the lungs. Once I graduate I'm thinking of taking my bike and spending 3-4 months living in South America. I'm an avid mountain cyclist with a bike that can cover 90% of the terrain out there.

If I were to base myself high in the Andes- 3000 feet up in countries such as Ecuador and or Colombia; are there particular towns/cities/villages I should at to base myself?
