This medium-length tour (10 nights / 11 days) aims at seeing and enjoying the greatest number of endemic species within the most magnificent landscapes of the Central Andes of Colombia, encompassing a wide range of ecosystems in a big altitudinal gradient. Tour itinerary covers thoroughly native forests within protected watersheds that supply water to the coffee region of the country.

Tour itinerary has been carefully planned in order to cover the greatest number and variety of nature ecosystems within the West slope of the Central Andes, from 4,200 to 13,100 ft (1,300 – 4,000 m). You will visit the very best nature reserves within the buffer zone of Los Nevados National Park, where many watersheds have been declared as Important Bird Areas (IBAs), holding some of Colombia´s rarest and most threatened species. The final two days of the tour will be devoted to bird the Western Andes for mountain Choco specialties, including a visit to the Yellow-eared Parrot Reserve in search of this critically-endangered endemic, one of the world’s most threatened birds.
