Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve, Mindo

4.9
#4 of 14 in Wildlife in Mindo
Lush rolling mountainsides and wispy clouds set a surreal scene at Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve. This nature reserve provides a more accessible counterpart to the nearby rainforests, while still brimming with many bird species, orchids, butterflies, waterfalls, ferns, and lush green vegetation. The reserve also offers many activities, including hiking, rappelling, tubing, mountain biking, canyoning, and ziplining. The warm, wet cloud forest (also known as a fog forest) also has lots of insects, so don't forget insect repellant and waterproof clothing. Consider exploring the reserve with the help of a local guide for the fullest experience.
