If you can get beyond the cold and the altitude, this is truly one of Ecuador's finest protected areas and the gem of the Jatun Sacha Foundation's network of natural reserves. Hidden in a remote valley, adjacent to the Sierra's heavily-used agricultural lands, is a remnant inter-Andean forest as found nowhere else. At the higher altitudes, the lush forest gives way to beautiful frailejone-filled paramo grasslands. The lodging and dining facilities are built in kind of a Spanish adobe style and are the nicest of any of Jatun Sacha's field stations.
