Early pickup at your hotel for our tour to the Manu Biosphere Reserve
From Cusco we begin our 8 hour journey by private bus ascending to the high mountain area at 4000 m. After a short stop in Ninamarca, to see the pre-Inca cemetery, and the colonial village of Paucartambo, we descend the eastern slopes of the Andes through cloud forest with lush vegetation. We enjoy spectacular views of the Andes and can see wildlife such as our national bird: the bright red Cock of the Rocks showing his mating dance. Brilliantly coloured Tanagers, Quetzals, Trogons and Hummingbirds can be seen and possibly the first monkeys, such as Woolly Monkeys. In the afternoon we arrive at Bamboo Lodge (950 m), where we spend the night.
Accommodation: double room & private bathroom
