Maquipucuna Cloud Forest Reserve

At 1000 to 2800 MASL (3280 to 9180 ft) is a medium to high altitude private reserve located north west of Nanegalito which is on the road from Quito to Mindo.  It has 6000 hectares (14820 acres) of primary and secondary recovering cloud forest, 80% of this forest is undisturbed, and it is surrounded by an additional 14,000 hectares of protected forest. It has been protected by the Maquipucuna Foundation and the University of Georgia since 1988.  This reserve has a very comfortable small Ecolodge with a capacity for 30 people with private and shared rooms built with wood and bamboo.

We will visit this reserve and explore the multiple trails where the biodiversity will surprise us with beautiful birds and sometimes the Spectacle Bear.  This threatened bear is becoming a common sighting and feeds on the lush vegetation that provides fruit.  If the weather heats up, there are  the refreshing waters of the Umachaca River to relax and soothe our feet and eyes.
