Route description

We will spend the night at Finca Las Cruces, the place where the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt spent several nights in 1801. We will also camp near the wax palm forests, on a platform where the Toches (an indigenous family) once lived.

During the expedition, we will also have the opportunity to observe other bird species of interest due to their beauty or rarity, such as the Mountain Toucan, the Paramo Parrot, the White-bellied Eagle, among others.

Transfer from Ibagué to Las Cruces, visit to the wax palm forests, and bird watching.

Horseback transfer to the location where the yellow-eared parrot colony is found. Data collection and photography.

Return to Las Cruces farm in Ibagué.
