Description

Pico de Águila is located in the Honduras Reserve in the municipality of Morales on the western mountain range 32km east of Popayán. The highest peak in the reserve is called Cerro Pico de Águila. At 2800masl up in the Páramo, it’s a touch to high to grow coffee, but members of the local community manage to cultivate it at 1500-1850masl. Pico de Águila is one of the most sacred sites for the indigenous community within the reserve and is also a key source of water for the surrounding region.

Honduras Reserve has a population of around 12,000 people, 20% of which speak Nasa Yuwe, the local language. The rest of the community speak Spanish as their mother tongue but still identify themselves as indigenous and there is currently a drive to recuperate the language. More bilingual schools have been created as a result. The Association (ASOCAFIH) joined Cencoic in 2012 with 174 families and currently there are 316 families in the Association, which is growing from strength to strength.
