To reach this remarkable destination, our journey begins on the first day with an 11-hour minivan ride, filled with captivating stops along the way. As our adventure comes to a close on the last day, our return trip to Cuzco lasts approximately six hours, still within the comfort of our trusty minivan.
On the second day of our expedition, we continue our exploration of the Manu Biosphere aboard our private motorized boat. This thrilling leg of the journey takes us on a scenic 40-minute ride, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the wonders of this remarkable biosphere.

The second day of your trip to Manu Peru is possibly the most awaited day. We will be leaving our tree house at 05:00 AM to see the unmissable Parrot and Macaw Clay Lick. Hundreds of brightly colored birds flock into the cliff to eat the clay.
The clay here is known to be rich in nutrients that help these birds to flush out toxins from their bodies. Witnessing the clay lick on your jungle trip is an experience on its own.

As locals, our tour guides have plenty of knowledge about the flora and fauna, most distinct to Manu Peru. You will discover the use of most medicinal plants as we will be hiking deep in the pristine jungle, away from the touristic crowd.
We will be hiking through bamboo forests. The region houses many ancient trees. This is also where a plethora of creatures live.
We will be returning to our treehouse for lunch. Our chef will surprise you with a traditional meal. After lunch, you will have a free afternoon. You can relax in the treehouse or do river tubing in the clear waters of Palotoa river.
You will be amidst the serene jungle and will be spotting different mammals like river otters. Manu Rainforest Peru is the only tour operator to offer this activity.
After witnessing the sunset, we will return to the lodge for a hearty meal.
