For a country filled with a complex fluvial network such as Uruguay, there are still some impressive land structures to see. Right on the borderline of Artigas and Rivera near Brazil, Lunarejo Valley contains multiple ravines, valleys and even gorges that create a scenic landscape. The valleys have sub-tropical types of vegetation and other plant species such as bromeliads and orchids. Its ravines and prairies have become home hundreds of bird species (with only about 150 identified), amphibians and reptiles.
