Birdwatching in the Andean Region
Trip Highlights
Trip Highlights:
  • In the Andean region we find well over 350 bird species.
  • The region offers you, mountains, rivers, and exciting walks through national parks.
  • Visit the páramo - a high-altitude region with a neotropical ecosystem - located between the upper forest line (about 3800 m altitude) and the permanent snow line (about 5000 m). The ecosystem consists of accidented, mostly glacier formed valleys and plains with a large variety of lakes, peat bogs and wet grasslands intermingled with shrublands and forest patches. It hosts about 5000 different plant species where 60% of these species are endemic, adapted to the specific climate characteristics of the place.
