An ecolodge located in the buffer zone of Manu National Park, owned and run by the Matsigenka communities of Palotoa-Teparo.

Bio:

The Pusharo Lodge is an ecolodge located in the buffer zone of Manu National Park along the Alto Madre de Dios and near the Cerros de Pantiocolla. This lodge is owned and run by the Matsigenka community of Palotoa-Teparo and provides access to beautiful, wild, biodiverse rainforests, and the most important petroglyph site in southeastern Peru (and one of the most important in the Amazon basin). In addition to visiting the petroglyphs, a number of other exciting activities are available, including wildlife observation and guided hikes through the jungle. The community who owns the lodge is aware of the pressures placed on the surrounding forest by the logging industry, and established the lodge as a way to give community members an alternative to the extraction of lumber. The Palotoa-Teparo community is made up of Matsigenka families that come from the Palotoa and Teparo rivers. Like other Matsigenka groups, they cultivate small orchards with pineapple, cassava, and other fruits and vegetables, forage and hunt in the surrounding rainforests, and fish in the rivers. They also extract some timber, but mostly for the construction of homes, as commercialization of lumber was banned by the community several years ago. The members of the Palotoa-Teparo community are happy to share the beauty and biodiversity of their land as well as bring guests to the Pusharo petroglyphs and sites visited by wildlife.
