The National Park of Manu is the most visited part of the Amazon region of Peru. Because of its close proximity to Cusco. Manu is also home to many distinct species of flora and fauna. The national park is massive. It is spread over 1,532,806 hectares. 

The national park is divided into three zones – the core zone, Manu cultural zone, and Manu biosphere reserve. Access to the core zone is restricted to scientists and researchers. The cultural zone and reserved zone is open for visitors.

On this 3 days Manu Jungle Trip, accompanied by our local naturalist guide, you will be introduced to their traditional way of life. They are still untouched by modernity.

Day 1Cusco (3,300 m.a.s.l.) - Cloud Forest (1,700 m.a.s.l) – Amazon Manu lodge (400 m.a.s.l.)

Embarking on our expedition from Cusco at the break of dawn, we traverse captivating Andean valleys and quaint rural communities.

Our journey unfolds with a visit to the ancient Ninamarca’s tombs, revealing the rich pre-Inca heritage.

Paucartambo, a colonial gem, awaits our exploration.

Amidst the cloud forest, we pause for a delightful lunch, surrounded by endemic species like the spectacled bear and the iconic cock of the rock, Peru’s national bird, engaging in a unique courtship display.

The lush landscape presents a tapestry of orchids, bromeliads, and ferns. As we continue our descent, nature’s spectacle captivates us, culminating in our arrival at the Atalaya port.

Here, a swift 30-minute river journey transports us to our inaugural night’s abode, promising an immersive experience amidst nature’s wonders.

Lined pre-incan tombs situated in the proximity of Paucartambo's town.

At the crack of dawn, we’ll cruise to the macaw clay lick, where diverse parrot species gather daily, feasting on mineral-rich clay to aid digestion and eliminate toxins. Afterward, a tasty breakfast awaits back at the lodge.

Post-breakfast, a 2-3 hour forest stroll precedes lunch and leisure, including river swimming. Optional zip-lining is available. Afternoon plans include exploring Machuwasi lake on rafts, observing birds like the hoatzin and, with luck, spotting monkeys and capybaras.

A night walk for insect and amphibian spotting follows, leading to dinner and overnight stay.
