AROUND Ruku SAMAY
Go where the spirit takes you. Run bare footed through jungle, swim naked in waterfalls, learn how we fish and hunt, join us on our farm, help Shaman collect the plants for ceremonies or simply walk tall among trees older then your name. Or wake up early in the morning and join the family for cup of wayusa and listen to stories that will blow your mind.
We are more then happy to organize some tracks around our amazing home. Once you learn to move around the forest by yourself you are more then welcome to visit these sacred places on your own. We are only asking you to approach these places with the gratitude and always keep in mind the way of quechuwa when wondering in the forest. The plants, animals and spirits are used to it more then anything else :)
TREKS THROUGH THE JUNGLE
Deep within forest, by the edge of where we normally wonder, the forest hides a true gem; Sulfuroso. This red colored clay has amazing health benefit and its great fun to use! Join us on a walk in jungle, cover yourself in sulfuroso, crack jokes, take pictures and wash it all off in hidden Jaguar pond. A day to remember!
The Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador is one of the most bio diverse places on earth! Just 62 acres (1/4 of a square kilometer) of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador supports over 1,100 species of trees. There are more species of trees and bushes in one hectare here than in all of North America. In addition, the Amazon in Ecuador is teaming with animal species. In Yasuni alone there are 150 amphibian species (more than the U.S. and Canada combined), 121 species of reptiles, over 200 species of mammals, over 596 of birds, and 382 species of fish.
Here is the invitation to explore as much of it as you can. We love to wander the forest and you will too :-) We can organize amazing day treks around the farm to see various land marks such as waterfalls, hidden springs or viewpoints. We can also set up longer treks which includes spending nights deep within amazon.
We have built our own version of it right at the stone beach of river Rio Blanco. Accompanied by traditional shamanic approach, our temazcal experience is the the place of rebirth a true spiritual sanctuary
Right next to our houses you can find river Rio Blanco that is full of fish ready to be caught! Besides standard fishing rods we also invite you to participate in the traditional fish hunt.
