Manu Reserve Peru Tour Details
Manu Reserved Zone Tours

The Manu Reserved Zone Tours of six days offer an in-depth insight into life deep in the Manu Reserve Peru

Manu National Park is in Madre de Dios province, some 200 kilometres from Cusco. It is the largest part of the Amazon Rainforest. The cloud forest and lowland forest covers 1532806 hectares and rise from 150 metres above sea level to 4200 metres. 

Manu Jungle comprises three different zones – Manu Core Zone, Cultural Zone and Manu Biosphere Reserve. Most of the tours take you to the cultural and reserved zones. Manu core zone is closed for visitors. It is exclusive to researchers and scientists. 

Manu rainforest is home to over 32 indigenous communities. Most of these communities have maintained their age-old traditions and customs. 

Among all the Amazonian regions in Peru, Manu is the most visited one. Primarily because of its close proximity to Cusco. This allows travellers to embark on a five to six hours drive after visiting Machu Picchu and other attractions.

Hilda and her crew were very helpful and informative. I visited the Amazon jungle for three days and those were the best three days of my trip to Peru. Everything was carefully organised by them. It was a flawless trip. I can totally recommend them.
