Drive to Amazonia via Misahualli
Today we drive towards the Amazon Rainforest via Papallacta and Baeza. This spectacular route starts from the Valley of Quito and climbs over the eastern Cordillera to a pass nearly 4100m high. The pass is literally the rim of the Amazon Basin. Jest a few minutes of our drive down the eastern Andes slopes we will get the chance to bathe in the hot springs of Papallacta or take a short walk to see the flora and fauna of the area. We then head to the Amazon passing the fascinating cloud forest region to arrive at our lodge in the Misahualli area.
