It is influenced by the Amazonia, Orinoquia and Andes Mountains and with some important fragments of forests. These characteristics keep a wide diversity of birds, among the species of birds with importance for the conservation found in this magic territory of great touristic attractiveness little explored. We found some very attractive species.

The region has an immense potential to attract tourists based on the existence of a group of very interesting species. There is also a great diversity in the region so this tour makes Santa Maria an obliged place for the tourists who love birds and their ecosystems.

This province has a strategic location since it is very close to Bogota and Tunja, which has aroused the interest of many universities in the region as a scientific and educative tourism target. Many field trips of biology and ecology students courses from several universities make it in this region of Santa Maria, and it is evident that part of the interest has been generated by the publishing of the field guides made by the AES Chivor company, CorpoChivor and the National University of Colombia (Laverde, 2016).

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 measuring way is the Guide of good nature tourist practices. Program of Productive Transformation, 2014).

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO FIND
