Peru Birding Tours designed The Lomas of lima (Hills) tour. Both places areas unique mist-fed ecosystem of wild plant and animal species. Both places provide species only found in each place and very restricted for this particular habitats.
The hills are a result of a combination of coastal climate factors and subject to a peculiar geography called the Yungas. They originate from the primary spurring of the Andes, a location where they contact the clouds which cover the area the majority of the year.
There are two distinct seasons: the humid season (which is the most important), from approximately June to November and the dry season, from December to May.
The first season is emphasized due to its ability to give life to the green vegetation and attract the fauna of the region, while the second season is noted for presenting a drying process which ends when the first fog appears in the fall.
