Bayside with the Cordillera in the Background.

The Cordillera is a small mountain range in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It is located north of Bayside not far from the Gant Bridge (coastside near San Fierro), separating the town from the open sea. This area remains unnamed on the map and it is not included in any mission, still players may favor it for its beautiful looks and the fact that it is ideal for off-roading, providing both easier and harder challenges depending on the players' preferences. Along the upper ridge of the mountain are several lights that illuminate the cordillera at night.


  • The Cordillera is the second highest land feature in San Andreas, just behind Mount Chiliad, and is the highest on the northern landmass (Tierra Robada, Bone County, and Las Venturas).
  • The fact that the Cordillera is unnamed suggests that it was added much later in the game's development. 
  • Beyond the Cordillera may be other areas of San Andreas which are simply not depicted in game for gameplay purposes.
