Departures: Thursday and Saturday

Recommended Season: March to November

Day 01:  Cusco – Cloudforest

Leaving Cusco you head over the Andes and visit the village of Paucartambo (8-hour journey). Climb to the highpoint of the Manu Biosphere at about 3 530 m before descending to the cloudforest. You will spend your first night in the camping huts of Posada San Pedro. (L-D).

Day 02: Cloudforest – Atalaya – Manu River

Transfer by bus to tropical lowland rainforest. Here at the small village Atalaya, you change into a motorised canoe to navigate down the turbulent Alto Madre de Dios River to Boca Manu. As night falls you make camp on one of the beaches. (B-L-D).

Please note:

  • The clay lick activity reaches its best from August to October and decreases during the months of May and June.

During the dry season (June-September) the water level on the river does not always allow for a floating blind and it will then be sitting on the ground.

Day 03 & 04: Lake Salvador and Lake Otorongo

In the morning of the third day you turn up the Manu River. You reach your campsite deep inside Manu in the afternoon. During this time, you will hike through virgin forest and explore one of the most beautiful lakes of the Manu basin, Lake Salvador, by catamaran. There is a chance to see a huge variety of colourful birds, numerous species of monkey and with luck, a family of giant otters. A five-hour hike through the forest takes you to Lake Otorongo and a 20-meter high observation platform that overlooks the lake. (B-L-D).

Day 05: Salvador Lake – Boca Manu

After a final walk through the forest surrounding Lake Salvador and return back down the Manu River. At Boca Manu, return to Cusco over the rainforest and the Andes by light aircraft. (B).

After lunch at the Center you will explore the forest trails with the emphasis on visiting the fruiting and flowering trees. Possibility to encounter more monkey species as well as numerous species of birds. Again, before or after supper, those explorers still with enough energy will have another chance for an additional visit to the Tapir clay lick. (B-L-D).
