Grand Canyon y Jumandy Caves
The tour starts at 9am from our office in Tena. We will travel for 30 minutes by taxi to reach Mondayacu in the canton of Archidona.
From there, you will walk for 45 minutes through the jungle to get to the fascinating “Grand Canyon”. This place is surrounded by rocks, waterfalls, trees and caves.
The river that runs through the canyon is called Nachi, which is a Kichwa name. Amazonian trout live in the canyon.
There you can see birds that perch in different places in the caves and in the canyon. Your guide will explain and show you the great variety of plants and trees that surround the canyon.
We will carry on upstream along the river, passing through an enormous cave to reach a deep lagoon. You can jump into the lagoon from a 10-metre-high ledge and see the Jondachi River. This is an unforgettable, adrenaline-filled experience.
We end our journey at the Grand Canyon. We will arrive at a family home where we will have our lunch and then will head for the Jumandy Caves.
The Jumandy Caves are one of the Napo Province’s most striking attractions. There, local guides will take us on a journey through the caves for an hour. Along the way, you can marvel at underwater currents of water and spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.
To round of the day, we can use the natural pool and water slides that form part of the tourist complex.
We will come back to Tena at about 4.30pm.
