THE CANOPY TOWER
At Posada Amazonas we have constructed a 35 meter scaffolding tower that allows easy access into the canopy. Located on a trail fifteen minutes from the lodge, the huge tower is built using scaffolding pieces guyed to cement blocks buried under the ground, providing safe anchorage. The scaffolding pieces provide the structure for an internal, bannistered staircase with wide wooden steps that allow guests to easily climb the six or seven stories to the platform at the top. The staircase has floors at every level that allow for rests, and an ample platform at the top to enjoy the canopy.
