Our journey of experiences and adventure will begin by traversing 'From the Andes to the Amazon.' We'll pick you up from the hotel very early in the morning, and we'll start our trip in a private minivan, ascending to the high mountain area at 4000 m.a.s.l. Our first stop will be a guided tour in Ninamarca, where you can photograph the pre-Inca cemetery. Then, we'll continue to the town of Paucartambo, recognized by the World Tourism Organization as 'one of the best tourist towns in the world.' Our guide will provide information about this charming town. Continuing in our van, enjoying spectacular views of the biodiversity of Manu, we'll descend through the eastern slope of the Andes, traversing the cloud forest where you'll witness lush vegetation (ferns, orchids, bromeliads, etc.). During our walks, you may observe birds, including tanagers, quetzals, gobblers, toucans, and brightly colored hummingbirds, as well as hawks and monkeys. Our main activity will be to find Peru's national bird (Rupicola peruviana) in the San Pedro sector. We'll then continue our journey until we reach the town of Salvación, where we'll switch from the minivan to 4x4 vehicles for an additional 2-hour ride to reach Dorado Lodge located at 300(m.a.s.l). There, we'll spend the night in double rooms with private bathrooms. After dinner, your guide will brief you on the activities planned for the next day. Night hike (Optional).

In the early morning, we will embark on our motorboat and navigate the upper Madre de Dios River. We'll have breakfast on the boat as we head to the Limonal control station, where park rangers will welcome us and provide a brief overview of Manu National Park. Afterward, we'll continue navigating the Manu River for approximately 6 hours amid immense trees, listening to howls, bird sounds, etc. Depending on the weather, we may have the opportunity to observe the biodiversity of species such as macaws, birds, eagles, mammals like the jaguar (Panthera onca), capybaras, tapirs, monkeys, etc. Reptiles may include a 4-meter black caiman (Melanosuchus niger), white caiman (Caiman crocodilus), anaconda (Eunectes murinus), and river turtles (Podocnemis unifilis). In the afternoon, we will arrive at Casa Matsiguenka, where we will spend two nights with the Matsiguenka families in bungalows with double rooms and private or shared bathrooms.

This day, we will visit the famous "Cocha Salvador" lake. We'll navigate its waters on a rowing catamaran to observe the habitat of giant otters. Cocha Salvador is the highlight of Manu National Park, especially during the dry season. It's filled with nesting and feeding birds such as herons, egrets, caimans, and stingrays. Various monkey species typically feed on exotic fruits. We'll explore the trails, walking through the primary forests of the Amazon jungle, where the sensation is unique as we are in an ecosystem that has remained unchanged since the formation of the Amazon. In the afternoon, depending on the weather and time, we will visit Lake Cocha Otorongo. A 20-meter observation tower in the canopy of the rainforest with a view of the lake is available for wildlife observation. We'll spend the second night at Casa Matsiguenka.

We will rise early to begin our return journey, navigating for approximately 6 hours by boat along the Manu River. Along the riverbanks, we may once again observe more wildlife, including monkeys, caimans, woodpeckers, etc., until we reach the Limonal control station. We will make a stop for the exit registration, indicating our departure from the Manu National Park Reserved Zone. Continuing in our boat, we will have a brief stop at the native community of Diamante to support them by purchasing crafts and typical products like fish, yucca, papaya. We'll then proceed by boat to our lodge. Before or after dinner, we'll embark on a night hike where we might encounter tarantulas, snakes, spiders, frogs, nocturnal birds, etc. Overnight stay at Dorado Lodge (double rooms with private bathrooms).

Very early in the morning, we will visit the clay lick for parrots and macaws. It's a special place where we observe the natural spectacle of these birds descending to eat clay, aiding in their digestion. Among the species, you can appreciate macaws, parakeets, parrots, the military macaw, blue-headed macaw, chestnut-fronted macaw, etc. Bolivian macaws and red macaws can be seen perched in the trees. After the activity, we'll return to the lodge, have breakfast, and pack our belongings to begin our return journey. We'll board the 4x4 vehicles for a 2-hour ride, spotting flora and fauna while crossing rivers and streams that are part of the road, passing through indigenous villages until we reach the town of Salvación. Here, we'll switch from our vehicle to the minivan. Along the way, we can visit the hummingbird and orchid garden, local initiatives. Continuing in our van, we'll make a brief stop in the town of Pilcopata, where we'll support the local community by purchasing fruit juices and fruit ice creams of each season (copazo, aguaje, pineapple, cocona, etc.). We'll then board our van to return to Cusco, concluding our adventure, tired but happy and content after visiting the 'Lung of the World,' and leaving you at your respective hotels.
