Encenillo Biological Reserve Day Trip

Highlights

  • Explore one of the last primary forests!
  • Discover unique and rare species of plants and animals, now protected by the reserve.

Description

The Encenillo Biological Reserve was established in 2007 with the purpose of preserving the Encenillo forests, including some unique and endemic species of birds and plants that live there. Thanks to the donation of Hendrik and Marianne Hoeck, Encenillo Biological Reserve covers 195 hectares, the altitude oscillating between 2,800 and 3,200 meters. The area is one of the last primary forests of the Eastern Andean Cordillera. Despite the strong impact it has suffered, it is still in very good condition. For this reason, the region is a type of refuge for the last populations of birds and mammals who thrive in this area. Along with an experienced English speaking guide, you will discover the unique wildlife and native flora that inhabits this beautiful forest.
