We will meet early in the morning to have the breakfast before we set off to Boquia Hamlet at 1.790 m.a.s.l. The hike starts heading to the bridge 'La Explanación' where the Boquia creek passes. We will walk along the forest that belongs to a nature reserve of the civil society, full of butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, flowers and birds. The main activity we will do is the birding and hiking. At the end we will visit the Quindío River, a very important river for all of us. Here we will have our fruits picnic and then return back to Salento.
