ITINERARY


DAY 1: CUSCO - PILCOPATA

We leave Cusco at 6:00am in a private bus, crossing many valleys and communities. Mid-morning we visit the graves of pre-Inca Ninamarca known as Ch’ullpas, then head to the historic village in the Andes, Paucartambo where we have breakfast. We will take a walk through the village and continue our journey up the mountain to climb to 3,852m to Acjanacu. This is the starting point of Manu National Park as we continue through the lowland rain forest full of beautiful Orchids, Ferns and primitive Heliconias. We will have lunch on the way and walk 30 minutes to see the famous national bird of Peru, Rupicola Peruviana, or Cock of the Rock in its mating ritual. We may also have the opportunity to see the birds Trogons, Quetzals, Tanagers and many more. In the evening we arrive at Pilcopata where we have dinner and spend the night in a lodge.



DAY 2: PILCOPATA - YANAYACO

After a delicious breakfast we bus to the port of Atalaya where we transfer to our boat to sail on the Alto Madre de Dios river. On the way we see a great variety of birds such as Herons, Kingfisher and always there is the presence of Vultures of which the most spectacular is the Condor of the jungle. At noon we arrive at our hostel in Yanayacu for lunch. Then we will have a rest in the hammocks, preparing for an afternoon walk on the trails. The neo-tropical jungle is like a scientific laboratory; 25% of pharmaceuticals get their medicines from the species here, however less than 1% of all of the species have been analysed. We will learn a bit about the medicinal plants that grow in the forest and of the animals (monkeys, birds, some mammals, amphibians and insects) that live among them. After the walk we will be returning to the lodge for dinner and again prepare for a 50 minute night walk to Collpa, where we see Tapirs, the largest mammal in South America eating salty clay. We finish the night by heading back to the lodge to relax.



DAY 3: YANAYANCO - PALOTOA

We get up early to go to the parrot clay licks, a formation naturally caused by parrots who visit there daily and erode the walls feeding. This is part of their diet to eliminate toxins from their body. Not only is it a colourful show, it’s one of the most incredible bird views in the world. We then return to the lodge for breakfast, afterwards heading out for a walk on the trails within the ecological reserve, where we will appreciate diversity of flora and fauna. After lunch we continue upriver until the village of Palotoa. We will be here in the afternoon for alligator spotting and afterwards we go back to the lodge and have dinner.


DAY 4: PALOTOA - CUSCO

After breakfast we continue upriver toward Atalaya. There our private bus awaits us which will bring us back to Cusco, arriving at night around 7:00pm.
