Itinerary

Day 1Cusco - Paradise Lodge

Starting early from Cusco, you will travel through Andean landscapes of unmatched beauty, deep valleys, highlands and rural communities. Where you will enjoy highland birds such as the mountain caracara, Puna ibis and Andean flicker, as well as pre-Incan Lupacas burial towers before arriving at the picturesque colonial town of Paucartambo. Which has been the gateway to Manu forests since pre-Hispanic times. Here, you will visit the church with its image of the Virgin of Carmen and see the historic Carlos V Bridge.

Once you pass through Acjanaco Pass (3,850 meters/12,630 feet), the official entrance of Manu National Park. The road descends through important, sparsely vegetated Andean grassland ecosystem before reaching the cloud forest in the afternoon. This area is a wealth of flora and fauna; it is the habitat of cock-of-the-rock (national bird of Peru), crested and golden quetzals, blue-crowned motmot, gray breasted mountain toucan, butterflies, ferns and orchids. To name just a few! After this big day, you will spend your first night enjoying the comforts of Paradise Lodge (1,470 meters/4,821 feet).

Driving distance: 181 km/113 miles (6 to 8 hours, including 3-hour hike)

Included: lunch & dinner

Day 2Paradise Lodge

After your first night in the cloud forest, you will enjoy a pre-breakfast walk into the forest to observe the cock-of the- rock perform its daily ritual, in which a group of males puts on a show to attract females. You’ll return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast and spend the rest of the day exploring the surrounding forest at a relaxed pace. Visit local farmers on their pineapple and coca leaf plantations.

There will be ample time for bird watching giving you the chance to look for quetzals and motmots, as well as the green jay, paradise, bay headed, orange eared and golden tanagers, in addition to observing fauna and learning about this unique environment. The road to Pilcopata provides birders with the ideal route for short hikes. Our bus is available to you at any time for transport to the area’s principle attractions. Remember, you can always sign up for mountain biking and white water rafting (class II and III rapids) on the Kosñipata River. You will spend another night in the comforts of Paradise Lodge.

Included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Day 3Paradise Lodge - Cusco

This is the final day in the forest. After breakfast, you will have time to continue relaxing or explore the area before boarding the private bus to return to Cusco. Follow, the now familiar route as far as Paucartambo, from where the route follows the course of the Quencomayo River to Colquepata and over the high pass at Apacheta (4,100 meters/13,448 feet). From here, descend into the famous Sacred Valley of the Incas, stopping along the way to enjoy the countryside dotted with traditional Andean villages inhabited by weavers, shepherds and farmers. You will enjoy spectacular views of Pisac archaeological site before arriving at the local village and continue on to Cusco.
