Sacha Lodge on the Napo River, in a remote, roadless area of Eastern Amazonian Ecuador. A visit requires a flight from Quito, the Capitol of Ecuador, to the small town of Coca. from which there is a boat trip down the Napo river to the lodge situated on the north bank of the river. From the river landing shelter there is about a mile hike along a boardwalk through wet forest to a canoe dock on Pilchacocha, a cocha or oxbow lake formed by a former meander of the Napo. The actual lodge is on the far side of the cocha. Activities at the lodge include visits to two canopy towers,one of wood built around a massive Ceiba tree, and an enormous metal structure similar to a suspension bridge between three upright supports. Also there are visits to parrot licks, and walks on trails through the humid forest. Despite its remoteness the lodge is very comfortable and the food is excellent.
