Hiking Trip 1 - Primary rainforest of Napo, Avinacion indigenous Kechwa village - waterfall Maraysillo. and swimming at Huacamaillo Waterfall.
What I have learned on my quest looking for waterfalls in our national park - Cordillera Escalera. Is that we as humans are always trying to reach our destination, then we go home. What I have realized is the importance of spending a moment to enjoy the journey along the way. Our high jungle forests are abundant with a rare variety of beautiful birds, butterflies, insects, strange plants, flowers, and medicinal plants. We have to remember to enjoy every moment.
To be welcomed into the home of a local Kechwa Lamista community is a great honor. Without trying, our indigenous groups are protecting the majority of our rainforests, just by living the way they always have. You will feel at home and welcome by our friendly jungle, guides, and communities. Join us in this once in a lifetime adventure.
