Chiribiquete National Park
Chiribiquete National Park - "Maloca of the Jaguar" is a very large and remote national park, known for its tepuis and painted rock shelters.
The tepui or table top-setting has let to a high level of endemism. The park in the Amazon rainforest is also home to a healthy population of jaguar and other vulnerable mammal species. 60 rock shelters with ca. 75,000 paintings are present at the foot of the tepuis. Their ceremonial use extends into the present day by isolated indigenous communities, some of which have no contact with the outside world.
