    At 9:00 am, meet at the Akangau Jungle Expeditions office in Tena. From there we will take a private car to the community of Mondayacu.  Take a guided 45 minute walk through the Nachi Canyon.  This canyon is full of impressive rocks, waterfalls, trees and caves.  You will see exotic jungle birds perching in the caves.   Our guides will point out interesting things about the incredible jungle flora and fauna.

    We will carry on upstream and pass through an enormous cave to reach a deep lagoon.  Climb to a ledge 10 meters high and take in the wonders of the Jondachi River, then leap off into the waters below.  This is an unforgettable, adrenaline-filled experience.

    The jungle walk ends at the impressive “Grand Canyon”.   After taking in the beauty of the canyon, a local family will welcome you in for a traditional lunch.

    After lunch, the adventure continues on to the infamous Jumandy Caverns.   A local guide will lead you through the depths of the caverns.   Along the way, you can marvel at the pristine waters and spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.

    The tour ends with a little bit more excitement.  Slide down natural water slides into jungle pools.  This is sure to be a fun way to end an incredible day!
