Which lodge to stay along the 2 days Trip?

Guadalupe Lodge it’s the ideal choice for these types of tours and more disconnected from the world, the travel to the lodge from Cusco city takes from 6 to 7 hours. The lodge location its better in contrast to most of the lodges that sits along the Manu road where the forest it’s been impacted and degraded.

The lodge is carefully designed for your tranquility. Its location is ideal to observe some blue and gold macaws at close range. Our local guide will do his best to interpret and share his knowledges about the diversity of the fauna and flora of the Amazon Rainforest.

The two  nights will be spent in a single location, Guadalupe Lodge  which is situated off the main Manu road and away from crowds, the Guadalupe Lodge its surrounded by healthy forest and offering great wildlife encounters

This trip starts in Cusco with a land journey through high Andes and down from elfin forests to the lowlands, stretching from 12,000-foot-high montane grasslands and elfin forests down through mid-elevation cloud forests to extensive lowland Amazon rainforest and then finishes with wildlife spectacles on the fast flowing Madre de Dios River that belongs to the Amazon basin in the south of Peru.
