Bolivia Madidi National Park
The Madidi National Park is one of the richest protected areas of the planet known by scientists as a "Biodiversity Hotspot", which is a priority for conservation weakened by the huge demand for development in the area. This tropical Andean hotspot has the highest biodiversity of plants endemic to the planet and is host to some 45,000 different plant species and over 1,000 tropical bird species whose songs will wake you up in the morning.
We know the value of this beauty that surrounds us and we are aware that it must be protected so for many years we searched for economic alternatives to prevent our young people migrating in search of a better life and to save our jungle from common destructive practices.
For you your visit is a chance to ensure the future of the MADIDI National Park for the generations to come and for us the people of San José de Uchupiamonas, CHALALÁN ’s history is the history of our commitment to nature.
The Madidi National Park is composed of snow-capped mountains, glaciers, high Andean lagoons, deep valleys and canyons, cliffs, torrid rivers and waterfalls - all in an area about the size of New Jersey, all adding up to make up some of the most stunning scenery you will ever see.
Inside of Madidi National Park, the beautiful indigenous community-owned Chalalan ecolodge is located. The Chalalan Ecolodge stands in the Tuichi valley on the shore of the magnificent Chalalán Lagoon in the middle of pristine forest. The lodge combines elegance and comfort in an ecological way by using local materials with respect for the natural surroundings, using forest materials, solar energy, and intensive protection of the lake and maintaining the traditional building styles of a local community, San José de Uchupiamonas
