Why You Should Visit Treehouse Lodge
Without a doubt, Machu Picchu is the #1 attraction in Peru. Over 3M people funnel through Peru each year just to cast their eyes over the Lost City of the Incas. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that shouldn't be missed. Only a tenth of those visitors continue on to Northern Peru in the Amazon rain forest. You need to see the Peruvian Amazon, and you need to see it from the treetops.
Treehouse Lodge is one of the most unique hotels on the planet. Featuring 10 treehouses between 30-70 feet above the jungle floor, they not only provide the ultimate Amazonian experience, they also fulfill childhood dreams of living, like Tarzan, up in the trees.
Here are 3 reasons you should visit Treehouse Lodge:
- The Experience. Ranked by National Geographic as one of the Top 10 Most Unusual Hotels in the World, Treehouse Lodge gives you a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that can't be found anywhere else on earth. To stay in your own treehouse (complete with shower, sink, toilet, bed, and electricity!) is an incomparable experience. Choose between a treehouse with a balcony and view of the Yarapa River, or a treehouse over 70 feet above the jungle floor. Mix this novelty with the chance to be 3.5 hours (by speedboat) deep into the Amazon rain forest, and you have yourself a bucket list trip.
- Choose Your Own Adventure. Treehouse Lodge is one-of-a-kind because of it's private, custom jungle experiences. Whether you're fishing for piranhas, on a jungle cruise, viewing pink river dolphins, spotting sloths or monkeys or caimans, you get to choose your own excursions and you're not in a big group. Each traveler / group has a private guide and a slew of excursions to choose from. You're literally building your own adventure. This can make the difference between a fun experience the trip of a lifetime.
- Take Care Of The Amazon. The Amazon is known as the "lungs" of the earth. Providing nearly 1/3 of the world's oxygen, this precious rain forest is something we all should be concerned about. Treehouse Lodge is 80% powered by solar power, with a goal to become 100% by the end of 2017. They've eliminated one-time use plastics and installed a rainwater catchment system for the local jungle villages. Certified platinum by TripAdvisor for their green efforts, this is one of the few hotels on the earth where you're experience incredible nature yet not creating too much of a carbon negative effect.
