Milpuj La Heredad is a private dry forest conservation area with 60 hectares of extension. It is located an hour and a half from Chachapoyas, between 1800 and 2500 meters above sea level, in the Magdalena district, in the Utcubamba river valley, Amazonas.
Lola and Perico, mother and son, have built a cozy house inside Milpuj – La Heredad Private Reserve. They made a stone house with comfortable rooms with a private bathroom and hot water for visitors. They wanted to build a house using local materials in natural harmony with its environment. And they got it! The result is a beautiful and comfortable shelter surrounded by forest.
Milpuj La Heredad covers 60 hectares, but only 16 hectares are classified as a conservation area. Besides the accommodation, this private reserve has a botanical garden, apiary, and nursery. Its extension even covers part of the old Inca Trail that leads to Chachapoyas!
On the other hand, there is a beautiful path of plants and typical flowers around the property.
Milpuj La Heredad is not a regular hotel but a home. You won’t find a fancy restaurant here, but their farm-to-table food is just delicious. They serve warm homemade meals using fresh local products that are handpicked from the garden and surrounding forest.
- The property has a water recycle system that uses water from the shower and kitchen to water the garden.
- Milpuj la Heredad is a perfect and strategic place to visit the different tourist destinations in this part of the Amazon.
- Perico is happy to spend time with visitors, showing exotic plants in the forest, the honey bee boxes, the nursery garden, or any other conservation project.
- There is the possibility of participating in the tree adoption program with an accessible donation.
