Pioneering landscape architect Hitesh Mehta spent the last thirty months traveling forty-five countries to find the most authentic ecolodges in the world. His stunning discoveries span the globe - from a remote village in Mongolia to the backwaters of India to the forest canopy of Brazil - and represent thirty-six of the most forward-thinking, eco chic lodges today. Organized into twelve categories, each lodge is ranked in adherence to its TIES guidelines. Mehta also includes a special section that highlights ten of the world's most extraordinary up-and-coming lodges kind of preview to the future of ecotourism. With more than two-hundred colour photographs, detailed illustrations of the lodges and their surrounding terrain, and an authorative yet engaging text, "Authentic Ecolodges" culls together the best lodges in the world, and celebrates their visionary design.
