THE ANCHICAYA VALLEY AND SAN CIPRIANO RESERVE
On this episode of Brazilian TV show Terra de Gente, the crew does some exploring from the crest of the western Andes all the way down to the Pacific Ocean, along the Anchicaya River. The Anchicaya watershed offers some of the world's most amazing birding, covering an altitudinal gradient that is sure to produce and satiate your ornithological cravings. Using the city of Cali as our home base, we explored remote areas of Colombia that are opening up to bird tourism after the recent signing of a peace deal. A highlight of the trip was riding the "brujitas" in San Cipriano, in the Pacific lowlands. "Brujitas" are motorcycle-powered wooden carts that locals have devised to transport people and supplies into and out of the village on the existing railroad.
