The Orinoquia, also known as the Orientales Plains, is a Colombian natural region. Its extensive plains, bathed by large rivers, are mainly dedicated to extensive livestock farming and, to a lesser extent, agriculture and fishing. its inhabitants have suffered a displacement of land concentration, which is why the Orinoquia has been one of the most protagonic regions of the Colombian conflict. Not in vain is it said of the Vichada, one of the departments of the region, which is "the land of man for men is land"
