8 MASHPI LODGE Ecuador

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Remote Hotels -

On a scenic plateau sur­rounded by forested moun­tains, Mashpi Lodge sits 950 me­tres above sea level. It is ac­ces­si­ble only to its guests, who are col­lected by the lodge’s pri­vate air­port trans­fer ser­vice from the city of Quito and driven ap­prox­i­mately four hours to its dis­creet lo­ca­tion. Pro­trud­ing from the hill­side, a se­ries of floor-to-ceil­ing panoramic win­dows al­low a feel­ing of nat­u­ral im­mer­sion even within the lodge. From here, guests may see a stag­ger­ing 400 species of birds in ad­di­tion to mon­keys that call the re­serve home, or they can zip through the for­est canopy on The Drag­on­fly, a two-kilo­me­tre-long ca­ble sys­tem. mash­pi­lodge.com
