Putumayo is the gateway to the Amazon. Its capital, Mocoa, combines the rainforest and the Andes mountain range in perfect harmony. In the west of the capital is the Sibundoy Valley, where the Kamsá and Inga natives live and celebrate the Festival of Forgiveness in February, in the south the Amazon begins with the city of Villagarzón and the rivers begin to take the form of a Snake along with green flat landscapes. Many rivers flow from the mountains creating a large number of waterfalls and possibilities to swim in crystalline rivers surrounded by huge stones and green forests. Regarding wildlife, Mocoa has everything the Amazon rainforest offers: a wide variety of endangered animals that include parrots, toucans, monkeys, dantas, chiguiros, tigers, panthers, spectacled bear and a variety of birds.
