YACUMA ECOLODGE Reisebaustein 4 Tage 3 Nächte.

Bromelias are a group of jungle plants and flowers that grow with support of a much larger organism in various forms such as parasitism, cooperation and much more. This beautiful balance between strong and small is what inspires this 4 day itinerary in Yacuma EcoLodge.
Even with your arrival to the lodge, one feels like entering a special place far away from what we are regularly used to. Entering such a wild and alive place will leave travelers with a lifelong impression of pure nature and the most alive spot in the known universe.

Reisetag 1:
QUITO (OR BAÑOS) – YACUMA JUNGLE ECO LODGE.
San Pedro de Sumito, Napo River, Chontayacu River, Yacuma Reserve and Lodge.
Our Guide will be waiting for you in the city of Tena,
Bei Interesse folgen die Details der Anreise.
Tena is the Capital of the Province. From here, we will drive for proximately one hour and a half more until we reach the community of San Pedro de Sumino, a small jungle town located in the banks of the Napo River, one of the main effluents of the great Amazon River. We will get a chance to buy the last required things at the local shop (batteries, candy, snacks, etc.) before hopping in the fresh water canoe to head deep into the Yacuma Natural Reserve. A 20-30 minutes ride will take you to the small Chontayacu River, where Yacuma EcoLodge is located. Depending on the time of the year and the amount of water running through the rivers, the boat ride can turn into a fun activity, as collectively, we all push the canoe through sand banks and up river to get to the lodge. The Yacuma Forest Reserve  is total 275 hectares of Primary rainforest, bordering the Chontayacu River next to the cabins, and going deep into the jungle surrounding the cabins. This natural heaven will be your home for the next few days, as you explore and connect with nature and the communities of the jungle. At the lodge, you will be welcomed with a glass of the traditional beverage called “Guayusa” this tasty beverage has a lot of caffeine and vitamins in much larger concentration than coffee, making it an ideal drink for the morning to have a very productive day in the jungle. After a short welcome talk, you will be taken into your comfortable traditional style bungalows. Solar panels provide hot water in the showers, as well as ambient lighting for the night. After a short rest, we will have a short navigation to the “hidden Lagoon”, where we will do a short hike ideal for bird watching in their natural surroundings, such as: King Fishers (martin pescador), Great Egrets (garzas de rio), Great Blue Herons (garzas reales), and perhaps one of the most strange and interesting birds of the amazon, the Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoatzin), that have a blue face and a punk-hairdo. The smell is quite pungent, giving it the nickname of the stinky bird.
In this place we will also try fishing for the legendary Piranha, which you can have for dinner at the lodge if you catch one! We will go back to the lodge, for dinner, and if everyone feels in good conditions a night walk for about 40 minutes can also be arranged after dinner. (-/-/D)

Reisetag 2:
YACUMA ECOLODGE AND THE FOREST RESERVE.
Regenwald Exkursion, „Bat Cave“…  Chontayacu community…

After a nice hearty breakfast we will begin a hike deep in the primary jungle of the Yacuma forest reserve. For this activity we have various alternatives. The first alternative is a short 2 hour walk in which the native guide will show us various species of birds, medicinal plants and their usage in shamanic healing rituals, and if we are lucky animals such as monkeys, tapirs, or capybaras. A second alternative of 4 hours across streams and different types of terrain will take us through various species of trees and plants with the objective of reaching the Tutapishco Cave, a.k.a. “the Bat Cave”. We will also get to see many species of plants used for healing as well as food and shelter within the deep primary rainforest. Within the cave, which has not been fully explored yet, a very interesting display of the inhabitants of the cave can be seen: The exciting dance of the amazon Bat (Saccopteryx Bilineata). This cave is considered sacred by the locals, and as the locations where the Shaman will come to renew energy for their sacred rituals. Many animal and birdlife can be observed in this walk, and with some luck, some very interesting mammals from the deep jungle such as monkeys, rodents, etc. exploring the primary rainforest is a very gratifying and fulfilling experience for all travelers.
We will return to the camp for a delicious, locally produced lunch, and after resting for a short period, we will visit the home of one of the members of the Kichwa Chontayacu community, where we can appreciate their simple and calm lifestyle. During the walk travelers can learn interact and observe the various crops that grow within the jungle of secondary forests of The Napo Basin. Crops such as Coffee, Bananas, cacao, cassava, papaya, pineapple and oranges are some of the locally produced agricultural products that provide sustenance for the inhabitants of the jungle. Visitors can also observe and buy the locally produced handicraft such as vases, small pots, necklaces, bracelets and many more beautiful crafts. The traditional Chicha drink will also be explained and passed around for everyone to try. If time permits, we will do some fun water based activities such as kayaking or tubing in the river. Conversely we can head back to camp and have a nice bonfire with music and enjoyment after dinner. (B/L/D)

Reisetag 3:
YACUMA ECOLODGE AND THE FOREST RESERVE
Wasserfall, Oropendola bird, Goldwaschen, Blasrohrschießen…

Chontayacu, the small river that flows next to the cabins, gives the name to the local
kichwa community that work in the Lodge. This river has a beautiful waterfall upstream
that we will visit this day. This 3 hour jungle hike will take us across beautiful amazon
landscapes and into the waterfall, as we ascend through difficult and complex jungle
terrain.
We will be able to hear the amazing calls of the “Oropendola” bird, as it tends to its nets
hanging from the trees like drops of water. We will go through secondary and primary
forest, viewing species of tree life that is very useful for the communities. After we get to
the waterfall we return to the lodge for lunch and a well-deserved rest, after which we will go down to the river to learn the traditional ways of gold panning in the river.
This fun activity will be followed by a lesson in the usage of the blow gun, as well as the
creation of Chocolate with locally grown beans. We will get to produce a very fresh and
high-quality cup of hot chocolate. We will enjoy a nice farewell dinner and a night bonfire to relax. (B/L/D)

YACUMA ECOLODGE — TENA
Morgendlicher Blick über den Dschungel, Frühstück, Rückfahrt nach Tena.

For those interested in bird watching, an early start is offered to catch the different species of birdlife rising for the day. At 5:30 am we will go up to the viewpoint close to the lodge to observe the jungle come alive. An impressive view of the amazon jungle from the same levels of the canopy is also very grand from this location. We will return to the lodge for breakfast. We will say goodbye to our friends after breakfast.
