Cocuy

Summits of silence, glaciers and eternal snows, lakes in altitude with multiple colors and surprising vegetation… In the wild beauty of these remote territories still live some mountain people and farmers: humble, simple and hardworking people.

Thanks to its climate and topography, the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy has a great biodiversity (Colombia is the 2nd country in the world with the most biodiversity) with an ecosystem of “Páramo”, a vegetation composed of mosses that abound with a large amount of water. This ecosystem is found in only 4 countries in the world: Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela and Kenya, especially on the line in the middle of the equator.
This region is particularly known for its “Frailejones” which are plants with large downy leaves, with flowers.

We find in the park bears, pumas, white-tailed deer, the famous Andean condor, but also the brown-breasted conure, a bird endemic to Colombia and the stenocercus lache, a colorful endemic lizard that can live up to 4000m of altitude
