National Park

Sierra de Perijá

* Ubication: Zulia State

* Location

In the Perijá Range, in the southwestern extreme of the state, on the border with Colombia.

* How to get there

By land from Maracaibo to Machiques, and then to the vicinity of the park, following the roads that lead to the villages of La Sierra and Ariguaisa.

* Characteristics

The park occupies a good portion of the Perijá Sierra, along the border, in what is also known as the Sierra de los Motilones, the aboriginal inhabitants of the region. It has a rugged relief and is covered by an almost impenetrable dense vegetation. The mountains rise like a vertical wall from the plains of the Maracaibo Lake. It is an important hydrological reserve.

* Vegetation

The main vegetation formations are cloud forest and paramo vegetation. Many species are represented, like the cedar, trumpetwood, "The Children", yellow poui, several species of palms, ferntrees, Spanish moss, orchids and bromeliads.

* Fauna

There is a rich and abundant wildlife. Among mammals there are capuchin monkeys and red howler monkeys, the spectacled bear, the paca, the giant anteater, the margay and the porcupine. The most important birds are the Wood Stork, the King Vulture, Plumbeous Kite, the Black-and-chestnut Eagle, the Fork-tailed Woodnymph, the Helmeted Curassow, the Southern Lapwing, etc.

* Recomendations

Due to the characteristics of the park and its location, it is not advisable to go at night or alone.

* Facilities

None. Wild and inaccessible, a place of interest is the Indigenous Mission of Tukuko, run by the Capuchin fathers. This is Yucpa territory.

* Climate

Temperatures range between 6° C. and 28° C. Hot and humid, with an annual precipitation of over 2,000 mm.

* Surface

295.288 ha.
