Leaving Cusco early, in the morning, we begin a 10-hours journey over the Andes in our private bus, on a road that partly goes up to 4000 meters above sea level. We travel through traditional Quechua communities and through the spectacular eastern ranges of the Andes, on the way, we have a few stops, to see the pre-inka cemetery of Ninamarca or to visit the famous folkloric village of Paucartambo (2900 m above sea level). Then we continue to “Acjanaco“, the park’s entrance from here we descend the eastern slopes of the Andes through cloud forest with lush vegetation (bromeliads, ferns, orchids etc.) in the cloud forest we can see wildlife such as our national bird: the bright red, Cock of the Rock (Rupicola peruviana) showing his mating dance. Quetzals, Trogons, Brilliantly colored Tanagers can be seen and possibly the first monkeys, such as capuchin monkey or Woolly Monkeys. In the afternoon, we arrive at the town of Salvacion, where we will exchange our car for a better one suitable to continue traveling in the amazon lowlands along the new communal integration road of Manu that crosses several Amazonian villas as the native community of Shintuya, home of the Harakbut people. In the evening we arrive at Dorado Lodge (500 m above sea level), where we will have dinner and then spend the night in double rooms with private bath. Night walk on the lodge’s paths to observe the nocturnal fauna

This day is special, because we will visit the famous reserved zone of the Manu National Park and travel on the enigmatic Manu River, where you can observe the wonderful fauna of this pristine place. In the morning if there is activity, we may visit a clay lick where many parakeet and parrot species eat clay every day. Also the smaller macaws such as the Chestnut-fronted and the scarce Blue-headed Macaws can be found there. After this we take our boat for about 45 minutes downstream the river “Madre de Dios“. Then we enter the reserved zone of the Manu National Park and continue our way for about 5- 6 hours on the Manu River until arriving at the Casa Matshiguenka Lodge that belongs to the legendary Matshiguenka people.

To name but a few. In the afternoon we have time to explore the trails and walk in the primary forests of the Amazon rainforest, where the sensation is unique, since we are in an ecosystem that has remained unchanged since the formation of the amazon. And a visit to the lake of Cocha Otorongo is planned, where a 20-meter observation tower in the rainforest canopy overlooking the lake is available for observing wildlife. We spend our second night at the Casa Machiguenga Lodge. Double rooms & shared bathroom.
