"A short foray into the rainforest" Provincia del Pastaza by Krumel

Provincia del Pastaza Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 276 photos

As part of our Ecuador-holiday we had also organised a 4-day trip into the rainforest.

I have never before been that far away from so-called "civilisation" and it was an amazing experience to spend a couple of days in such a wild and special place.

We stayed at the Bataburo Lodge on the Tiguino river, which is the only lodge in the Huaorani territory and run in co-operation with the tribe.

Our time at the lodge was spent with walks in the forest where we looked for birds and other animals, and our guides explained the use of different plants to us, and also showed us how the Huaoranis go hunting and build their huts in the forest.

We also went further down the river in a rowing canoe to look at a pretty lake, went piranha fishing and had a blow-pipe competition, which was very funny.

    Sounds like you had a great stay in the jungle. I'm looking forward to visit the Amazonas region later this year, but I will go to Sani Lodge (and stay at their camping).

    A good honest report about this trip. I felt like I was there with you.
