Tambopata Inn Lodge

Lodge Tambopata Inn: Uno de los principales atractivos de Tambopata Bahuaja es sin duda un enorme árbol de renaco cuya edad se ha calculado en 300 años. Su enorme tronco debe ser rodeado por más de una docena de personas y sus raíces, como si fueran serpientes de madera, se internan en el bosque varias decenas de metros. Un ejemplo del enorme poder de la naturaleza cuando se la trata con respeto.
