Itinerary


DAY 1

Mituseño-Urania, Cubea ethnicity.

The adventure begins (after picking you up where we agree) with a motorcycle tour to the indigenous reserve of Mituseña Urania.  We will visit the maloka and the kubay hill, where we will be able to appreciate birds and a great view of the jungle. In this reservation we will make a beautiful ride in Potrillo (silent paddle canoe) through the flooded forests watching birds. The indigenous community of the resguardo will present us with a small sample of their traditional dances. We will spend the night at the hotel in the city of Mitú. The night will be free for you to explore the city as you feel like.

DAY 2

Guacamayas Hills

The tepuis or rock hills of Mitú are impressive and hold a beautiful mysticism. This time we will visit Cerro de las Guacamayas. To reach its summit we will walk along a comfortable trail through the jungle for 2 hours. The view from the hill is spectacular, with the whole panorama of the immensity of the Vaupés Amazon. This hill is part of the Mitu Cachivera indigenous reservation. We will visit the white sand forests and climb one of the highest rocky outcrops of Mitú, where we will appreciate the orchids and birds of the place. We will also be able to see the most colorful orchids of the area, the greater epidendrum and lesser epidendrum. In Caño Sangre we will take a refreshing bath, a sensation that can only be experienced here in the jungle streams. In the afternoon, we will take a river trip on the giant Vaupés River. In the evening we will arrive back at our hotel to rest.



DAY 3

Cock of the Rock and City of Mitú

The gift of the day will be the Cock of the Rock (rupicola rupicola). We will visit the Cerro del Venado, where this magnificent bird lives and can only be observed with a lot of silence and patience, among other things, only early risers can receive this gift. Don't forget to bring your binoculars or your long lens camera, because seeing it up close is the best delight you can give yourself ;) nothing like seeing the phosphorescent flash of this bird when it flies in the Guyanese jungle forest... The Cerro del Venado is also a rocky outcrop of the Guyanese shield, that mixture between tepui and jungle is one of the most impressive things that Vaupés presents us. 

The city of Mitú has a great potential in culture and contrasts. Like any capital city, it has infinite stories and cultural traits, one of them is that 90% of its inhabitants are indigenous, so they give a special particularity to the energy of the place. This afternoon we will make a City Tour to visit the church, visit the murals and the beach along the Vaupés river. Walking along this boardwalk is like going back in time to a place where time does not exist, its guaduals keep a very placid freshness. 

In the evening we will return to our hotel to rest.


DAY 4

Tepui Flecha Hill - Ceima Cachivera

We will venture on a very easy and quiet hike to the tepui Cerro Flecha de Ceima Cachivera which has a 360 degree view of the Amazon rainforest.  We will also enjoy a swim in the natural pools of the Ceima Cahivera stream.  We will visit the traditional Maloca of this community, characteristic for its cheerful colors.
