HORNED SCREAMER MANU 7 Day Bus/Bus - (Biosphere Reserved Zone Trip) Tapir, Caymans, Giant Otters, Monkeys, Parrots
Many tourist after visiting Cusco to hike to Machu-picchu along the Inca, Lares or Salkantay trails realised that the true jewel of Peru is Manu National Park
Situated 380 kilometers from Cusco, a paradise, the Peruvian government has been protecting for the past 30 years and now they are saving up to come back! Make sure you visit Manu while you are here.... you need to add a few more days to your itinerary but the investment is totally worth it!
early at 05:45 am pick up from your hotels in Cusco, first part of our excursion will take us through the majestic Andean mountains, after an 45 minutes we will find Huacarpay lake, a high Andean Lagoon that boasts heaps of flora and fauna typical of the Andean mountains a paradise to see birds. Afterwards we will arrive to Huancarani which contains the funeral towers of Ninamarca, a cemetery of the Lupaca Pre –Inca Culture, then we will reach Paucartambo, the famous traditional and folkloric town. At mid-day we will arrive at the entrance of Manu National Park and access to one of the most protected natural areas in South America. We will continue on our bus down a dirt road and on through the thick fog from which this section of the forest takes it name. Eventually we will arrive at the home of the exotic Peruvian National Bird, Gallito de las rocas, the “Cock of the Rocks”, to observe the social gathering that seems reminiscent of a large courtship. You will find that this is quite an amazing spectacle complete with an impressive array of sounds and colours that can only be found in the jungle. For our first night, we will stay in the BAMBU Lodge, where we will arrive at approx. 5:00 p.m
Very early we will leave to Puerto Atalaya; on the way we will make a few stops to visit the small, communities of Patria and Pillcopata. These communities are well-known to be producers of many varieties of jungle fruits even the famous Coca plant. Later, we will begin the motor boating portion of our journey in a river excursion on the Madre de Dios river, or “Mother of God” River, one of the tributaries of the mighty Amazon River. During our day we will have the chance to be witness observing many types of colorful birds such as macaws, parrots, Oropendolas, vultures and others species. Hopefully, we will make some sightings of some jungle mammals such as monkeys or the famous capybaras (jungle rodents that are as much as 2.5 feet long, Towards the late afternoon, we will arrive to our next sleeping destination I- MANU LODGE, at this place will be showers and services available.
Today we will go to one of the main areas of the Manu National Park, the Tourist Zone. For the next 5 to 6 hours, depending on the level of the water in the Manu River, we will sail down the robust river in our river boat. Because of the lack of civilization in this part of the jungle it will make all that much easier for us to take notice of the rich wildlife to be found here. Animals such as Capybaras, Caymans, monkeys and with a little bit of luck, maybe we will be able to see the great, South American feline, the Jaguar, which may just resting in the sun some place along the river. We will then arrive to our private area in the Manu reserved zone, the Capybara Lodge, where we will spend the 2 following nights. If there is sufficient time, we will take a trail nearby the camp site, your guide will offer you a full interpretation of the fauna and flora, the ecosystem, interaction and symbiosis in this fragile ecosystem of this complicated Tropical Amazonian forest. (Walks at night optional)
We will begin with an early morning visiting one of the biggest lake in the park the stunning Salvador Lake, which is the natural habitat for any countless number of local species. This is the jungle at its best, boasting such animals as the Black Cayman and the Giant River Otters, both of which are endangered and at risk of extinction. This is one of the only areas in the entire world where we may see one, not in captivity, but instead in its natural environment. During the evening, we will continue on to see another lake, this one equipped with a lookout tower alongside used for viewing the immense lake from a birds-eye-view. This will be a fantastic opportunity to soak up the amazing views of Lake Otorongo. Then it is back to the Capybara Lodge for dinner and sleep. (Walks at night opcional)
Today we have one more opportunity to explore the forest around Salvador Lake or around the lodge; maybe we will even have a chance to see a group of Tamarine Monkeys, which are the smallest monkeys in the entire world. Be aware of surroundings, because they could sneak up right behind you!!. Later after lunch we will take the boat and travel for four hours down stream the Manu River, on the way we might see some black caimans laying on the beach getting the sun heat, maybe we will be able to see the great, South American feline, the Jaguar, which may just resting in the sun some place along the river. At night, we will visit another system of trails with a completely different set of characteristics than the first one. Our guide will explain to us why and how locals are still using different plants of the jungle as traditional medicines and show us native plants from the area.
Early in the morning, we will depart and move in the direction of our last lodging of the journey. In order to get there, we will travel for 8 hours with a stop in a beautiful place of hot spring, where we will spend some time to relax and swimming in the hot spring; from here it takes a few hours to get our lodge. Arriving to our location we explore the area, where we can see some more birds and perhaps some monkeys (Walks at night optional)
At the crack of dawn we will go on an early morning trek through the jungle on our way to enjoy the one the Amazon Jungles most impressive spectacles, the amazing Parrots Clay Lick. This is where hundreds of colorful parrots, congregate to “lick” the clay thereby receiving its nutrients. After the activity we will go back to the lodge for breakfast, then we will travel for 20 minutes up steam to Atalaya Port where a bus is waiting for us to take us back to Cusco, arriving late in the afternoon by 6 or 7 pm approx.
