Tuparro-English

Puerto Carreño - Cachicamo Communities – Maypurés Affluent

Tuparro River and Caño Lapa


By air 6 days 5 nights


The National Park of Tuparro, circa 1977, is a barely explored land in the Region of Vichada (southeastern Colombia). On its 548.000 acres there are trees that reach over 35 meters, 6 types of different landscapes and a high diversity of fauna and flora that is still being explored. In the XIX century, Alexander von Humboldt referred to this territory as the 8th wonder of the world. Today, a group of explorers adventured in the heart of this zone to reveal to us its secrets and prove why this is “the landscapes that transforms”.
