Mashpi Lodge ● Cloud Forest ● Ecuador
Hidden deep within the misty cloud forest in the Chocó region and surrounded by one of the world’s most precious and bio-diverse eco-systems sits Mashpi Lodge. Located in it’s own 1300 hectare private reserve the lodge is powered by hydro-electricity and contributes to the protection of the surrounding environment through working closely with it’s local community and funding scientific research projects in the area.
