Cusco Peru Travel

 

 

MANU CULTURAL ZONE

 

(3 days / 2 nights)

 

1ST DAY:

 

We leave Cusco early in the morning in our specialized overland vehicle. We will go through interesting valleys between the Andes and picturesque peasant communities. Approximately at mid-morning we visit Paucartambo, a picturesque Spanish colonial town, and then the Acjanacu pass at 3850-m. a. s. l. We continue our bus trip through the Cloud Forest, rich in endemic species as the Cock of the Rock, the Spectacled Bear, Orchids, Tree Ferns (one of the oldest living plants), mosses and lichens. Overnight in our comfortable platform.

 

2ND DAY:

 

Early wake up to observe the fascinating mating ritual dance of the Cock of the Rock (Rupicola peruviana), Peru's national bird, whit its vibrant reddish orange feathers. After breakfast we continue our bus ride through the high forest eventually arriving to Pilcopata town (*).

Following we arrive to Port of Atalaya (700 m.a.s.l) by the riverbanks of Alto Madre de Dios River in order to board our motorized boat. Once all the appropriate equipment is loaded in the boat, we start going down stream watching the great diversity of bird species, such as herons, vultures, cormorants. We stop in a small lake to observe caimans, hoatzins (pre-historic bird) and then arrive to our Private Reserve of Erika Lodge to spend the night. The great diversity of wildlife around the lodge is due to the wide altitude range of this beautiful site. Immediately after arrival we will walk around the trails and our guide will explain us about insects, medicinal plants, trees, reptiles, mammals. Short night walk.

(*) Here in Pilcopata town we will make all the final settings for a 3 hour rafting trip (class II and class III) down the Kos˝ipata and Alto Madre de Dios river where we will have the opportunity to enjoy the fantastic view and a refreshing dip. Continuing down to our lodge.

 

3RD DAY:

 

After breakfast, we will navigate for 10 minutes towards the Collpa, a clay wall by the riverbank where different species of parrots as the Blue Headed Parrot, the White Eyed Parrakeet and probably the Military Macaw ,among others, come down every morning for a lick of mineral to help their digestion. After this fascinating show we continue in our boat towards Port of Atalaya to take the bus back to Cusco, arriving late at night.
