Location and Staff are incredible. The lodge offers daily excursions, browser, moderate and strenuous. Each is guided by one guide and if too many people sign up the group is divided in half and each group has a guide. The guides are extremely knowledgeable about the flora, the geology and everything else that a traveler might want to know about the area. Manym if not all, have degrees in the relevant fields. The rooms are small but certainly quite usable. The central lounge is frequented by the guests and the interaction among the guests, particularly those who hiked togetherm further makes for a wonderful stay. The food varies, but is always ample and tasty.
