Complete Guide to the  Natural Monuments of the  Merida State

Natural Monument

Chorrera de las González

* Location

In the Culata Sierra, west of Mérida.

* How to get there

By land, following the road from Mérida to Jají.

* Surface

126 ha.

* Characteristics

This natural monument is beautiful. Its main feature is a fault escarpment crossed by crystalline waters of the Las González Creek, which form white waterfalls known as "chorreras" (water spouts). After it rains or snows, these waterfalls have a greater flow and they look imposing from the distance, like tears falling down a petrified face. The topography is typically Andean with cloud forest vegetation. There is a large variety of ferns, orchids, mosses and epiphytes. Among birds, the most important are the Andean Guan, the Helmeted Curassow. Among mammals there are rabbits, squirrels and pacas.

Natural Monument

Laguna de Urao

* Location

On the northern slope of the Chama river, southeast of Mérida.

* How to get there

By land, following the route Mérida-Lagunillas.

Area * Surface

29 ha.

* Characteristics

Within a semi-arid landscape, this lagoon is almost an oasis. It is 870 m. long and 270 m. wide, with an average depth of 5 m. The name of this lagoon comes from the urao mineral (hydrous carbonate of soda) which was used in ancient times by the natives to mix with tobacco leaves and produce "chimó". This mineral comes from the concentration of salts found in the subterranean waters which form the lagoon. In the village of Lagunillas there are facilities for picnics and swimming in the lagoon.
