The Three Best Green Jungle Hideaways
You want to flee from everyday life? You want to get away where no one can find you? We searched for the most beautiful hidden green spots – and found them. The criteria? Far away all hustle and bustle, surrounded by nature and all support a holistic sustainable philosophy. Green Pearls presents the three best jungle hideaways to counteract daily fatigue:
The Biodiversity Capital of Peru
Those in need of some distance from everyday-life, find a warm and sustainable temporary home hidden in the Peruvian rainforest. The elegant rainforest lodge Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica is calm, pristine and adjacent to the lush Tambopata National Reserve. Here you can exchange big city noise and work stress for lush green landscapes and a diversity of birds, mammals and reptiles. The region is known as biodiversity capital of Peru not without reason. Simple and at the same time luxurious, the lodge’s architecture and furnishing is held in indigenous style. Tree-trunk boardwalks wind through the property and connect your cabaña to the main lodge, with a restaurant, a bar and balconies for bird watching.
Floating On a River of Tranquility
Hidden in the Cardamom mountains of Cambodia, floating on the Tatai River, the 4 Rivers Floating Lodge is a paradise of peaceful seclusion and exclusive privacy. Tents and platforms are made from sustainable and recycled materials, it is important to not disturb the surrounding nature. The protected rainforest ecoregion of the Cardamom mountains, where hundreds of endangered and believed-to-be-extinct animals can be found, starts at the front door. Thus, this hidden green gem offers wonderful views and the sounds of pure nature. You don’t get used to all the impressions anytime soon and want to explore the region to your heart’s desire – this is done best on a regionally authentic trip. Particularly interesting excursion possibilities are a trekking tour through the jungle, a guided kayak trip through the river overgrown with mangroves, or a romantic boat tour during sunset. Beside these, and more, activities, the floating lodge is the perfect place to lean back and drift – far away from the hustle and bustle.
Rolling Hills and Green Forests
Surrounded by cascading waterfalls, lush forests, and picturesque hills the Hunas Falls by Amaya offers a fantastic, untouched natural backdrop. The atmosphere of this beautiful corner of the globe is known for its low and dense fog in the morning and its spectacular sunset in the evening. The Hunas waterfalls are also one of the only well developed hiking areas of the tropical island. You won’t get bored during your hike through the jungle since the paths are often interrupted by open spaces, that also serve as great overlooks, and tea plantations. Hidden in the lush green forest of Elkaduwa in the Hunnasgiriya Hills, the Hunas Falls by Amaya is a fantastic starting point to explore the Hunas waterfalls – one of the most sensational spots in Sri Lanka. After an eventful day in the jungle you can relax in the hotel’s Ayurvedic spa, where a sustainable wellness treatment is highly valued.
