Day 1

Cusco - Guadalupe Lodge

Early departure from Cusco in the morning. The beginning of the Manu Road passes through numerous dry inner-mountain valleys and picturesque villages. This gives you a quick overview of locals’ lifestyles and colourful clothes. A brief call at Ninamarca will give you the possibility to explore the pre-Incas tombs within this well archaeological site. The road includes various stops, so you can enjoy seeing the surrounding landscapes varying from high-mountains to humid forests. Next stop will occur in the village of Paucartambo which features beautiful arched colonial bridge. From Paucartambo the altitude will keep on increasing and the setting gradually gets enveloped by a cloudy mist. The road leads you to Acjanaco pass consisting in the main gateway to Manu National Park.

Once across Acjanaco Pass (3550 m / 11.647 ft) the environment dramatically changes from dry to wet valleys. Do not miss the splendid view when looking down toward the lowlands! The lush and misty cloud forest surrounded by massive rocks and waterfalls is perhaps the most fragile and threatened type of rainforest. In such environment filled with lichens and moss-carpeted soil, spotting birds will be the main target. You will get the chance to stare at a large variety of birds ranging from the Peruvian national bird, the brightly red Andean Cock-of-the-Rock displays to tanagers, toucans or quetzals. The path will head down to the Guadalupe lodge (560 m./1837 ft). Overnight in the lodge.

    I went to Manu last year with Wild Watch Peru and it was a magical experience. Herbert and Esau were absolutely incredible, lovely, and extremely knowledgeable about the animal species. Louisa our cook was fantastic and everything she cooked up was delicious and filling. The whole tour was completely tailored to us and we never felt rushed- we could enjoy ourselves and take as many pictures as we wanted without being moved on before we were ready. The accommodation was beautiful and clean (a lot more luxury than we were expecting to find in the rainforest). We saw many species of bird, capybaras, monkeys, caimans, reptiles, spiders, bats and so much more.
