Frailejones on Páramo de Siecha

Marvelous nature. This place is near 4000 msnm. The most fragile and important plants in the páramo is the frailejón, which grows only 1 cm per year and blooms only once a year. Climbing the The hills we could see the 3 lagoons and the steep rocks that surround them, in spite of the rain and the strong wind.
