As this region is in altitude and having a tropical climate, this place shelters a very particular ecosystem: the cloud forest.
The fog is frequently present above the forest, sometimes even the trees are engulfed into the clouds... An amazing phenomenon.
Biodiversity is amazing here, I saw numerous animals such as Coatimundis, Capuchins, Hummingbirds, Parrakeets,..
