The famous Malaga Pass offers the unique opportunity to bird one of the rarest and threatened ecosystems on earth, the Polylepis Woodlands. As we start our early drive along the Cusco-La Convencion road and as the pass is reach a short walk is requiered to get to the patch of Polylepis, a 4-5 hours easy hike down to valley floor is necessary to explore this unique andean habitat and its highly habitat-specialized birds, unfortunately this endemic andean habitat is quickly disappearing because of selective cutting for fire-wood. The birds we expect to find include Ash- breasted Tit-Tyrant (endemic), Royal Cinclodes (endemic), White-browed Tit-Spinetail (endemic), Tawny Tit-Spinetail, Striped- headed Antpitta, Giant Conebill, Cordilleran Canastero, Black Siskin, Brown-backed Chat-Tyrant, Lined-fronted Canastero, Tit-like Dacnis, Blue-mantled Thornbill, Thick-billed Siskin, Andean Condor and others.
Early morning departure to reach the famous Malaga Pass. Short hike is required to reach the patch of forest where we hope to find a great selection to highly habitat-specialized birds. A 4-5 hours hike is necessary to fully explore this unique habitat. Once in the valley floor we meet our transport and we drive back to Cusco or the Urubamba Valley depending where you are based.
