Visiting the Rainforest is a unique adventure into the heart of nature, and by far was the most interesting and exciting experience we've ever encountered. Among towering trees that have stood for centuries, we discovered for the first time how many different shades of green truly exist. Home to an incredible array of extraordinary wildlife, the Peruvian part of the Amazon is one of the most breathtaking and biodiverse places, that despite its challenges is our favorite awe-inspiring destination in the world.

Deep in the heart of Tambopata National Reserve, Chuncho Claylick is the largest clay lick in the world. The region is the most complex and biodiverse area in the world, with many species of butterflies, mammals, and birds. Although the distance between most of the lodges and Puerto Maldonado is quite large and the road is difficult to travel, the whole area is spectacular, and visiting a clay lick is a unique experience.

The Amazon rainforest is not only one of the world's most biodiverse regions, but it is also home to many indigenous communities that have lived in harmony with the nature for thousands of years. The native community of Ese Eja is one of the world’s last remaining foraging Amazonian tribes, whose ancestral land is located along the Tambopata River, in Madre de Dios region.
