National Park

Serranía la Neblina

 

* Ubication: Amazonas State

* Location

In the southern extreme of Venezuela, Department of Río Negro, on the border with Brazil.

* How to get there

Only by river, following the waters of the Ori-noco and Casiquiare rivers, or by helicopter.

* Characteristics

Immense and important life reserve which takes its name from the constant cloudiness that covers the mountain. La Neblina is 3,014 m. high and it is the highest elevation in South America, east of the Andean Range. The relief of the sierra is marked by deep valleys, the most important of which is the Grand Canyon of the Baría River. It is formed mainly by sandstone strata which belong to the Roraima formation of the Precambrian era. There are also igneous rocks which belong to the Amazon granitic complex.

* Vegetation

Because of its location and climate, it has a varied endemic vegetation. The lower part shows the characteristic formation of the humid tropical forest. Towards the summit of the mountains, the forest becomes shrubby with extensive moss-covered areas, like a natural carpet. Many species are found here, specially orchids, along with a shrub which only grows in the park, known as Neblinaria celiae. Carnivorous plants have also been found, such as the Heliamphora sp., and others.

* Fauna

A complete inventory of the fauna of the park does not exist, but mammals like the jaguar, the tapir, the margay and several species of monkeys are abundant. There are abundant ophidians, like the Emerald Boa, anacondas and the Green Fer-de-lance, etc. Among birds, there are the Strong-billed Woodcreeper, the Nocturnal Curassow, and who knows what else, until we discover it.

* Recomendations

A special permit to enter, spend the night and conduct research in the park, is required. Contact INPARQUES.

* Facilities

None

* Climate

Temperatures range from 27° C. to 8° C., depending on the altitude. Very humid with precipitation of over 3,000 mm.

* Surface

1.360.000 ha.
