   Henri Pittier

Henri Pittier National Park is located in the coastal range in a vegetation zone known as the cloud forest. The park is an expanse of 107800 hectares of coastal mountain range and it is mostly famous for the 578 species of birds found in its life zones.

Duration: 1 day

We drive west to Maracay and up the mountain to Henri Pittier National Park (3 hours). As you go up the mountain to Rancho Grande biological station you will pass through deciduous and transition forest, and will come to cloud forest near the ridge of the mountain chain. The building began to be constructed under directions from dictator Juan Vicente Gomez. It was to be a hotel. When Gomez died in 1935, construction was halted and the building abandoned. Eventually, it was converted into a biological research station. Upon arrival we will go for a 2 hour hike through the cloud forest using the Andrew field path.
