By this way we can protect our nature of the community for the future of our native children.

    A year ago I met a person from Hungary and she was charmed by the jungle and decided to help us to carry out this project in which also is involved my father, me and my 4 year old daughter all with ashaninka origins, they are living in this native comunity of 70 families with lots of knowledge of medicinal plants from the jungle. We are also engaged in agricultue such as , cocoa, bananas, avocado, papaya, sugar cane, coffe and others.

    The Santa Rosa de Chivis vilage is 20 minutes from the city Puerto Bermudez.

    The village is surrounded by two rivers at 5 minute walk, with cristaline waters taht comes from the natural reserve of the jungle. In the water You can see very clearly the fishes and at two hours of walk from the comunity deep into the jungle we can visit a wonderful lake with a waterfall called La laguna Mono, for whom the local people have a lot of respect.
    You can observe calmly birds, such as parrots of different colors, aquila, butterflies in varieties like sacred lily and rock cockerel who lives near the waterfall, wich we can visit at the end of the week and also we can stop by Pichis river where we can camp and fish or swimming.
    If you want to taste exotic fruits, all you have to do is to pick them up.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    How you get here in Pichanaki:
    Very easy - you take a bus from Lima (from La Victoria- 28 de Julio) , directly to Puerto Bermudez by bus with Lobato Company. (tell the driver you want to get off a Santa Rosa de Chivis, 20' before Puerto Bermudez). You take the bus in the night and in the morning you will be here, it s like 15 -16 hours in the bus.

    Another way to reach our community you can make it with a little break: A bus from the same station (La Victoria) to Provincia de Chanchamayo, Lamerced city - 8 hours (there are many bus companies that operates this road). You can eat, rest a little here and then you need to take an offroard jeep through the jungle 5 hours to Santa Rosa.

    We live together with volunteers. We specialize in different activities: Luidy as a local guide and a specialist in sports with a lot of adrenaline
    Maria and her husband has a lot of knowledge on medicinal plants and their children have a great respect for nature and they are very curious to discover and learn from their parents we can also do a course of treatment with medicinal plants.

    ---------------------

    Nosotros convivimos juntos con los voluntarios. Somos especialistas en diferentes actividades : Luidy como guía local y especialista en deportes de aventura.
    Mi padre tiene mucho conocimientos en plantas medicinales,peces,madera forestables, que les puede dar informacion de cada planta y su procedimiento , yo estoy en proceso de aprendizaje sobre las plantas medicinales .para poder enseñar a los demas personas y si desean realizar dietas con las plantas tambien lo hacemos curso de tratamiento de sanasion con plantas medicinal.

    Como llegar a Puerto Bermudez ?
    Toma tu bus de Lima (de la Victoria - 28 de Julio) directamente a Puerto Bermudez con Lobato Empresa. Tomas el bus en la noche y llegas al día siguiente en la tarde , son como 16 horas de viaje. Dile al conductor que queres bajar al Santa Rosa de Chivis antes de Puerto Bermudez.

    Otro manera es un bus de Lima (mismo parada) a Provincia de Chanchamayo, Lamerced city - 8 hours (hay muchas emoresas por este camino). Puedes descansar alla un rato y despues tomas un carro atraves de la Selva 5 horas mas.
