Mindo cloud forest tour from Quito

Ecuador is dramatic in its geography. With different altitudes high up on the Andes volcanoes for hiking like Cotopaxi and Quilotoa day tours and much lower terrains like the North West from Quito, the Andes mountains well known as Mindo Cloud Forest, it is much warmer than Quito (24 celsius), it has more oxigen, and with lot of diversity like: mountain toucans, orchids, ferns, clean rivers for swiming on temperate or sometimes cold water and of course sparkling creeks feeding to tributary rivers of the Pacific ocean.
Waterfalls and cascades, gaps with open viewpoints that get passed through the forested mountains, this is the Choco Bio region region with high endemic species that made it to win the UNESCO title as Biosphere World Reserve, it is the number 7th of Ecuador. Here more information about the Choco Bio region.
To photograph birds in Ecuador, we take you in a private Ecuador bird photography tour for different regions and bird locations of mainland Ecuador.
