Orinoco river basin: Inirida - land of many water.
Inirida is situated in the extreme east of Colombia (30km from the border of Venezuela), at the confluence of the Inírida River and Guaviare River. Inírida lies in the Colombian Amazon region and is an amazing place for birding since this area has some of the best types of white-sand and varzea forest sites that host many scarce, rare, and seldom-seen specialties. Inirida is the capital city of Guainia department, locally known in Yuri language: "Land of many waters" because of its powerful waterways. Back in the nineteenth century the scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt chronicled his awe for the lush tropical terrain of this region and proclaimed the Raudal de Maypures torrents in Tuparro National Park to be the “Eighth Wonder of the World”
