Mashpi: A unique biodiversity reserve

Mashpi Lodge - EcuadorAs you enter the realm of the rainforests, you will become aware of Life at every step: mushrooms and fungi below, tree trunks festooned with liverworts, lichens and mosses, giant ferns reaching up to the light above, swirling mists and clouds of moisture.  And then, from nowhere, comes the sound of rushing water, a waterfall amid this glistening, green world, where you can revive your senses. 
 

In the Heart of the Andean Rainforest, a Gateway to Diversity

Mashpi Lodge - EcuadorThe wonders waiting at Mashpi Lodge will delight the worldliest nature lover. Perched at 900-m (3,116-feet) above sea level and surrounded by lower mountain rainforest and cloud forest, the Lodge is surrounded by a profusion of plant species, from ferns and bromeliads to hundreds of orchid species, many newly-discovered.  A staggering 500 species of bird – including some 36 endemics - are estimated to inhabit the forest, fluttering through the canopy.  Monkeys, peccaries and even puma make their homes inside the Reserve crisscrossed with waterfalls between dramatic, verdant hills. 

The Mashpi Reserve is located a mere two and a half hours to the northwest of Ecuador's capital, Quito - the first city named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO - and is accessible via paved and unpaved roads. 
 

Exotic Birds - Mashpi Lodge and Ecological Reserve - EcuadorMashpi Lodge is set within an 1,200-hectare (nearly 3,000-acre) private reserve, which is part of a globally important bio-region: the Tunbez-Choa-Darien.  The area around the reserve is world-famous as a biodiversity 'hotspot', particularly when it comes to flora and avifauna. 

The reserve occupies much of the land that was previously part of a logging concession.  It was purchased in 1997.  Over the following years, more land was added until the forest was legally registered as a private protected forest. 

Eventually, the projects inceptors turned their dream into reality with the building of the lodge itself - in fact, on the very site of the mill which once whined with the sawing of the forest's trees.
