LOCATION

COLOMBIAN PEACE DESTINATIONS

THE ANCHICAYA VALLEY, THE COLOMBIAN MASSIF AND PUTUMAYO

Colombia has been undergoing a very positive transformation in the past decade, and with the recent signing of a historic peace treaty we now have relatively unexplored areas opening up to bird tourism. We have chosen to highlight some of these areas, known as peace destinations, to offer a chance at some of the most sought-after birds in Colombia. The Anchicaya Valley on the Pacific Slope, the paramo ecosystems of the Colombian Massif, and the Amazonian piedmont of the Putumayo region.

HIGHLIGHTS


  • Bird the trampoline of diversity road for 2 days, enjoying an elevation gradient of 1,800 m (6,000 ft).
  • Explore the San Agustin Archeological park, where the added bonus is 2 endemics: Dusky-headed Brush-finch and Colombian Chachalaca.
  • See Andean Condors up close in the paramo of Purace National Park.
