This peaceful and rustic lodge is light years away from the hurly-burly of the city life. Concealed away on a Black water Lake, at the verge of the tributary of Rio Napo. The community-operated lodge is the safe haven for Ornithologists. It runs purely on solar energy because the sound of generators scares away the wild creatures.
