Pantiacolla Lodge
»»Manu - Madre de Dios - Peru »»
Category: Tourist Class Lodge

The Pantiacolla Lodge is ideally situated at 1,700 ft. (550 m.) of elevation in high ground forest that overlooks the rushing Upper Madre de Dios River, Peru. The lodge is set in beautiful rainforest on bluffs overlooking the turbulent Alto Madre de Dios River. Nestled in the Manu foothills at the base of the Pantiacolla Mountains.

The Pantiacolla Mountain Range, which is the final Andean range in Manu prior to the vast lowland forests, rises gradually more than 3,300 ft. (1,000 m.) into the clouds behind the lodge and are a contributing factor to the enormous variety of wildlife that inhabits the area.

Explorers with a few extra days can hike a long trail from the lodge to the top of the Pantiacolla Range, where two bird species new to science were discovered in the 1980's. As many as 7 species of monkeys have been reported for the area.

Accommodation at the lodge is provided in bungalows with a total of 14 double rooms giving a maximum capacity of 28 persons. Paths lead from the bungalows to showers and flush toilets, and to a spacious and comfortable dining area and bar.

Though the lodge clearing offers superb birding without even stepping into the forest; the 900 hectares of land around the lodge offer the enthusiastic explorer miles of gridded trails to walk, traversing a variety of different habitats and also providing access to hot, cold, and mineral oil springs. The 20 km. of gridded forest trails in all habitat types offer unparalleled access to the world's finest birding forests. The foothill forests of Manu within view of the Andes are famous for having the largest bird lists of any sites in the world -nearly 70% more bird species, in fact, than sites in the central Amazon of Brazil, for example.

In all the western Amazon, from Colombia through Ecuador and Peru to Bolivia, Pantiacolla is the birding lodge with the best location and the most complete, most scientifically-designed trail system. Birders can spend weeks here without exhausting the immense bird list.

Pantiacolla Lodge is an ideal rainforest destination for all types of jungle enthusiasts. For birders, it offers an exceptionally high species density. For first time visitors, it offers a comprehensive trail system and great wildlife watching opportunities. For students of Spanish, you find yourself in a stimulating learning environment. And for families, it offers an almost mosquito free environment in which both adults and children can discover the secrets of the tropical rainforest. Moreover, it is especially suited to those who would prefer a more relaxed and comfortable rainforest experience.
