Mérida – Los Llanos.

Andean Mountain Range & The Wetlands

Imagine this…

The dawn breaks in the foothills of the Andes Mountains and begins to burn away the morning fog. The snow-capped peaks stand majestically in the crisp air, greeting the morning sun. As the sky clears, you catch a rare glimpse of an Andean Condor soaring royally in the deep blue sky.

The next day you are in the Venezuelan plains called Los Llanos. You awake before dawn. The sun begins to rise over the grasslands that are caressed by an early morning breeze. The sound of hundreds of parrots awakening breaks the silence. You and your travel companions climb out of your beds to see the sunrise and experience the wonder that is Venezuela.
