  • One of the best experiences of my life. Live three days on trees in two different houses, walk for hours in the forest, crossing mountains and fording rivers, villages of yesteryear, colors and smells amazing, unforgettable encounters. There are so many beautiful memories I have of this trip that I cannot list them all. Absolutely if you get the chance go, you won't regret it.
