As touring the Amazon continues to gain more popularity among tourists, a green ecological hotel has been built in the jungle in Peru to protect the hylaea.

The beautiful natural hylaea of the Amazon has attracted a large number of tourists to travel to Mardre De Dios in eastern Peru in recent years. But it has also brought a big threat to the local hylaea ecological system at the same time.

As touring the Amazon continues to gain more popularity among tourists, a green ecological
hotel has been built in the jungle in Peru to protect the hylaea.

To protect the environment, local residents have built an environmentally-friendly hotel. The hotel staff also engages in spreading awareness of preservation efforts for the hylaea to visitors.

Andrew, manager of green ecological hotel, said, "Under the precondition of not destroying the natural environment, tourists here can have the chance to get the knowledge of hylaea and enjoy them."

As touring the Amazon continues to gain more popularity among tourists, a green ecological
hotel has been built in the jungle in Peru to protect the hylaea.

The daily water consumption of the hotels comes from rain and underground water. The rooms are lit by an oil lamp and the rubbish is sorted and recycled.

There are more than ten green ecological hotels in Mardre De Dios, which have prioritized protecting the Amazon hylaea and sharing the magical place with more tourists.
