Chalalan Lake and ecolodge are located in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. This amazing retreat has been carefully constructed using local materials, traditional techniques, solar energy, treatment of all wastewater, and resulting in minimal ecological impact. Madidi National Park was established in 1995 in the Northwestern section of Bolivia. It protects a full array of ecosystems, from the high Andes to the Amazon basin, and includes a vast wilderness of over 4 million acres of unparalleled biological diversity from cloud forest to dry forest, humid lowland rainforest to savannah, and wild rivers to lakes. Chalalan Lake and Ecolodge is located in an area that was shaped by ancient geological and glacial processes that render spectacular views today.
The park is home to more than 1,000 species of birds, 44% of all New World species of mammals, and an estimated 38% of neotropical amphibians. Your local guides will impart their deep knowledge of the area, ensuring you will enjoy your immersion in this uniquely beautiful and rich country.
The local owners of the Chalalan Ecolodge, the village of San Jose de Uchupiamonas, a Quecha-Tacana ethnic group, hope that by participating in responsible tourism, they can be successful in the preservation of thousands of hectares of pristine rainforest that belong to them and were inherited from their ancestors.
