The Land

The area's páramo ecosystem, a rare glacier-formed tropical ecosystem that exists between 3000m and 5000m in the mountains, characterized by lakes and plains rich with peat bogs and wet grasslands mashed with shrub lands and forest patches, only exists in a few countries in the world, with a large portion in Colombia. Like Parque Nacional Natural (PNN) El Cocuy to the north, where the páramo also thrives, there are excellent trekking opportunities here.
