    high up/ high

    ‘We are high up in the Andes. Somehow the clouds don’t feel very far away, and wherever we go in the city we have the mountain watching over us.'

    We are high up in the Andes.
    We are high in the Andes.

    What's the difference?

    Re: high up/ high

    There's no real difference. I think #1 is possibly slightly clearer because "high" can mean under the influence of drugs!
