Regional travel in Peru – Travel program PTW-MAN001-en

Manu mountain cloud forest

These tours take you right into the middle of nature in a unique biotope: in the mountain cloud forest of the Manu National Park on the eastern slopes of the Andes, where flora and fauna are more diverse than anywhere else on earth. Manu Ecolodge Tambo Paititi is a haven for wildlife viewing. We offer you a variety of opportunities to explore the flora and fauna of the mountain cloud forest.

Program 1

Jungle to get to know

3 days / 2 nights – Start: daily

Day 1: from Cusco to Tambo Paititi Lodge

Depart Cusco early in the morning by private vehicle. After a winding and varied journey through small communities and lonely landscapes, you will reach the village of Paucartambo and, after a final climb, the border to the Manu National Park at the Acjanaco checkpoint (3550 m).

From here you can enjoy the view of the seemingly endless green carpet of lowland treetops. You drive down the eastern slopes of the Andes and can observe the fascinating change from the barren landscape of the altiplano to the diverse flora and fauna of the Manu mountain jungle. In the early afternoon you will reach Tambo Paititi at 1500 m altitude.

Day 2: Tambo Paititi

At sunrise you can experience the mountain cloud forest of the Manu National Park very much alive. After a little refreshment we go in search of tracks and observation posts for birds, monkeys and other animals. On a narrow trail through the mountain jungle we look out for Peru's national bird, the colorful rock cock and other bird species such as toucan, quetzal, tanager and oropendola. With a bit of luck you can also observe capuchin monkeys and the largest monkey in Amazonia, the woolly monkey. Back at the lodge, a hearty breakfast awaits you. In the afternoon we undertake another 1-2 hour hike on lonely paths through the mountain cloud forest. Throughout the day there are numerous opportunities to get to know flora and fauna, to take a bath in the rushing San Pedro river or to observe the surroundings in peace and quiet, directly from the lodge.

Day 3: from Tambo Paititi to Cusco

Once again you get up early to observe the animals that are active in the morning hours in the mountain cloud forest of Manu National Park. After breakfast you will board our vehicle which will first take you back to Paucartambo via the Acjanaco pass. We continue with changing landscape impressions back to Cusco, arrival in the early evening.
