Sanctuary of the iconic Wax palm, The “Black and chestnut eagle”, The “Brocket deer”, And the many Coatis in the Nasua Genus; over hundreds of birds and endless microflora that might appear just in front of our faces.

Along with the cattle fields into the humid ecosystem of the Andean Jungle, you will get into the borders of the High Andean forest on a steep slope that leads to “La Montaña” Nature reserve 3000m (9,842ft).
Having done a small and fast picnic, accompanied by the astonishing sounds of the forest, You will keep going into Acaime, House of the Hummingbirds, a place that represents the big efforts of conservation.
Once again, head back across the bridges that will get you into the scenery of Indiana Jones, take your time, leave your footprints, nothing else, and get back to your Hostel in Salento.
