MINDO CLOUD FOREST

 

 

 

 

 

The cloud forest is home for more than 400 bird species, also orchids, butterflies, mammals and amphibians. On this trip you will re-discover them! The cloud forest is an ecosystem characterized by the presence of fog or “clouds” at the height of the tops of trees that generate abundant moisture and development of mosses and               epiphytes, which allows a wide variety of animals and plants with a high level of endemism. In Ecuador, the conservation of these forests has attracted considerable interest from NGOs and governments, so activities such as ecotourism and bird watching in Mindo, in particular, is a great opportunity for local communities to preserve this richness. Mindo is located two hours from Quito, and is well known and visited by local and foreign tourists, as they can perform different activities: cotourism, adventure sports, hiking, etc.
