The butterflies besides being very flashy organisms because of their colors, habits and forms, they are species used as environmental indicators, since they are especially sensitive to disturbance, either natural as anthropic. Colombia has been cataloged as the second country with the highest number of butterfly species, near 3300 representatives.

This tour will get us into the Huila and Putumayo departments. The Putumayo department is located in a strategic zone regarding biodiversity. Part of its territory is located in the Amazonian foothills, because they converge own organisms of the Andes and Amazonia. Thus with relatively short displacements, we can pass from an amazonic humid forest, to a high Andean forest and even to sub-paramo zones. Then on their side the Huila department has among its ecosystems of its territory, the tropical dry forest—one of the more threatened in the continent—and numerous zones of Andean forest. The diversity of ecosystems in this tour is a clear advantage when you think about different species to find.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
This Route has a level of difficulty that oscillates between 1 and 3 in the scale of 1 to 6 (the source of this form of measurement is the Guide of good tourism nature practices, Program of Productive Transformation, 2014).
WHAT WE ARE GOING TO FIND
In this tour we will visit ecosystems like cloud forests, dry tropical forest, sub-paramo, border forest and amazonic piedmont. Attitudinally we will be in spots from 600 msnm and will climb to other places at up to 2800 msnm. Likewise, the temperatures vary widely in different places, from 75.2°F in Mocoa and 69.26°F in Pitalito, to 59°F in Sibundoy and La Cocha lagoon. This altitude variation in temperature and the variety of ecosystems allow the sighting of a great quantity of butterfly species.
