Located to the north of the country, next to the border with Brasil, this area offers unique sceneries and nature. The proximity to the south of Brasil makes for a large number of subtropical plants and animals that aren’t found anywhere else in Uruguay. There are hills with flat tops, delineating narrow rocky valleys and gorges. You will spot rock caves, walls, small waterfalls and exuberant vegetation, classic of the subtropical jungle. There are 150 species of birds, some which can only be spotted in this area. Likewise, there are species of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals which are unique to this part of the country. There are five trails you can take here, some that go around the valley and others down the gorges. Find the best ones for you depending on what you want to experience.
