Carpe Diem #1432 Yanachaga–Chemillén National Park

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a wonderful journey this is. We are traveling by train straight through the Andean Mountains. A region in the world with a very rich history, as we already have seen. Today we are visiting Yanachaga-Chemillén National Park. This National Park is situated in the so called Pasco Region Peru. Let me tell you a little bit more about this National Park.

Yanachaga-Chemillén National Park
The Yanachaga–Chemillén National Park is located in the Pasco Region in Peru. It preserves part of the Peruvian Yungas and Ucayali moist forests ecoregions. The Palcazu River, Huancabamba River, Pozuzo River and their affluents flow through this national park. Some native communities still live in here. There are also some archaeological fields from the Inca and Yanesha cultures.

It looks awesome this National Park and it's home to the Ctenophryne Barbatula, one of world's most tiny species of frogs. Another species that you can find in this National Park is the Andean cock-of-the-rock, a kind of bird.

Andean Cock-Of-The-Rock

The Andean cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola peruvianus), also known as tunki (Quechua), is a large passerine bird of the cotinga family native to Andean cloud forests in South America. It is widely regarded as the national bird of Peru. It has four subspecies and its closest relative is the Guianan cock-of-the-rock.

Well ... it has become a short episode, but that can work too for your inspiration.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until May 21st at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our next episode later on.
