Refugio Los Volcanes, Amboró National Park

It’s amazing how plants are able to survive on the vertical cliffs! Not only is there little nutrients, but the wind is sometimes really strong, and with the relentless rain of the wet season it’s a constant movement that will loosen any grip.

Altitude: 1036 metres.
