Vilcanota was a deep canyon, over a hundred feet high, which fell vertically into the river. Among moss and orchids, thousands of epiphytes with translucent yellow leaves clung to the stone; while waters, white with foam, hard hitting rocks. A deafening noise obscured the birdsong. Perched on a short ledge watched the river slipping between the cliffs polished by centuries of continuous erosion.

Suddenly, as out of nowhere, a couple of quick figures advance upstream almost effortlessly. Now and then stop at one of the huge rocks polished, and then attacked the violent currents, and challenging the powerful Vilcanota. It is a couple of torrent ducks (Merganetta armata), one of the most incredible creatures that inhabit the mountain streams in the high jungle – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

Common in almost any water course mountain over 1,000 meters, but necessarily clean and no evidence of contamination; Nature has endowed these birds an amazing ability to sail and navigate the most violent rapids, its undisputed habitat. The apparent risks of living in an environment of this type are rewarded by access to an abundant food without competitors: larvae of thousands of insects found among the rocks submerged in the water with plenty of oxygen in the high forest – “Manu Jungle Trips “.

In the jungle of manu another species, but smaller, share with ducks turbulent waters in search of insects and even smaller larvae. This is the dipper (Cinclus leucocephalus), a tiny bird with black and white color and slightly larger than a sparrow, who has learned to literally swim under water in search of food.

With as fast as they arrived, the ducks away almost running ‘on the water upstream. We, for our part, we decided to continue along the shore to photograph the variety of wildflowers. A fuchsia, purple, offers its abundant nectar always hungry hummingbird. This inadvertently will pollinating each flower with pollen grains that leads attached to the feathers of the forehead. In another cocoon, a pair of emerald beetles seem to struggle awkwardly access into the colorful floral wrap in the high jungle – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

Here rotting fruit becomes an irresistible attraction for legions of colorful butterflies, and a slight movement in litter denotes the presence of caterpillars whose appearance seems to have been taken from a science fiction book. This forest is also home to two such beautiful creatures as elusive: the Andean Bear (Spectacled Bear) and pudú or sachacabra (Pudu mephistopheles). The first, the only South American continent úrsido, usually live a vegetarian life hidden deep in the cloud forest; the second, a deer just a foot of height, twilight expected to wander in search of buds and fallen under vegetation that makes an invisible creature for predators in the high jungle in the manu fruit.

As we move away from the river and walked along the railroad tracks, the songs of hundreds of birds are dominating the environment. The wet, heavy air of the forest is ideal for transporting your trills and gurgles … and birds know vehicle. Therefore, with unusual power touting the possession of their lands or their consorts quality individuals of the opposite sex. Machu Picchu’s forests are home to nearly three hundred species of birds, a number that increases continuously with the records of visitors to the forest with high “Manu Jungle Trips”.


From grand condors, without kicking a single time, leave their cold domains have a look at the tropical exuberance; until tiny tanagers whose colors would be the envy dancers of Andean fiestas. Hummingbirds are a special case. The abundance of flowers in the region allows for up to 14 different species, each with spikes designed to eat the nectar of certain varieties of plants. Some are as small as an insect, adapted to access the nectar from the tiny flowers of the cherry tree, or the other so large that they exceed in size to the bird itself, making it the only animal able to sip the sweet reward that hide the bells and Datura.

The flora is not far behind. Pisonay trees {Erythrina falcata) and Qeuña high (Polylepis racemosd) cups filled with red flowers appear boil life. To a botanist, each of these trees is a natural showcase of staggering proportions: lianas and bromeliads every inch of the branches racing, while orchids, mosses and lichens are grouped conferring the branches the appearance of being lined with a green coat and wet from the high jungle of manu and manu national park.


As night falls, the stars seem to shine more strongly than anywhere else. Only the rustling eucalyptus wood at times distracts our eye on the river, illuminated by Quilla, the moon. Tomorrow we leave very early to try to see one of the most beautiful inhabitants of these places … a true symbol of the cloud forests of the Andes in the high jungle – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

We have come to the right place. Suddenly, we see a figure disappear into the branches. A ‘kind of fireball’ that leaves speechless to see it for the first time. The cock of the rock (rupicola peruviana), is the mysterious inhabitant of the forests that now delights us with his display. Few species have evolved such complex display methods. A unique natural spectacle in which only one of the males will be winner. This scene is one of many that the environment offers in the forests of the sanctuary. Machu Picchu tours is more than impressive archaeological remains, it is also a natural refuge for hundreds of species and an open book on the dynamics of nature to those who want to delve into his contemplation. Preserving it is the duty of all those who identify with nature and want this archaeological remains sanctuary also and above all, a shrine to life in mountain forests of the high forest in manu national park.



Established d January 8, 1981 by Supreme Decree N °. -AG 001-81, covers a total of 32,592 hectares belonging to the district of Machu Picchu tours, province of Urubamba, “Sacred Valley of the Incas”, department of Cusco. Besides the famous citadel of Machu Picchu, the Sanctuary protects 34 archeological groups linked by the classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu tours. Although few know, Machu Picchu tours are located in a natural area of extreme beauty and ecological importance: the cloud forest. Own this environment are ucumari Andean bear (symbol of the area), the quetzal high, the cock of the rock, and dozens of species of orchids. The main purpose of its creation is to protect the abundant evidence of archeology and the Andean culture and the spectacular landscape, habitat of important species of flora and fauna. Similarly, improving the standard of living of the local population through sustainable development.

Archaeological Site of Wiñay Wayna (Quechua, “Forever Young”) on the final stretch of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. One of the peculiarities of the Inca settlements was extraordinary harmony with the natural environment.


Travel to National Park “Yanachaga – Chemillén” with Manu – Manu Jungle Trips:

Established on August 29, 1986 by Supreme Decree N °. -AG 068-86, covers a total of 122,000 hectares of an isolated mountain range belonging to the districts of Oxapampa, Villa Rica, Huancabamba and Pozuzo Oxapampa, Pasco department. It is one of the so-called wildlife refuges Pleistocene era when the Earth suffered severe climate change, as evidenced by the diversity of flora and fauna found there.

The park extends over a wide altitudinal range from 2,500 to 3,800 meters, which is why protecting a high biodiversity. Groups of species such as orchids, bromeliads, birds and tall grasses are among the most abundant and, while less studied. Among the main objectives of its creation is the conservation of the upper basins of the tributaries of Palcazu Pozuzo Huancabamba and rivers, to ensure sustained agricultural production in adjacent valleys and natural disasters avoid soil erosion protection – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

It is also vital to the conservation of natural areas that constitute the so-called security zones to a set of (Yaneshas or Amueshas) native communities living in the vicinity of the Park, and the protection of .representativas samples of the ecosystems of the eastern slopes the Andes to the lowland rainforest, part of the Pleistocene Refuge Ucayali-Padiitea as the spectacled bear, the dwarf or ádncalm deer, quetzals, toucans high, dozens of species of tanagers and hundreds of orchids and branefias, some of which have been described by science.


Established on May 22, 2001 by Supreme Decree N °. -AG 031-2001. It covers a total of 1’353.191 hectares of montane forests located on an isolated branch of the Cordillera Oriental belonging to the departments of Loreto, San Martin, Ucayali and Huanuco. His appointment was the result of a biological inventory that defined this area as an area of extraordinary biodiversity. Its creation allowed, according to the new regulation of Protected Areas and reserves, the possibility of a shared administration between state representatives and CIMA (Center for Conservation, Research and Management of Natural Areas). The Blue Mountains house the largest concentration of habitats of all protected areas of Peru, among which the high swamps and hidden deep in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains lakes – “Manu Jungle Trips”.



“They say that in the beginning of time all things were people like us. The stars lived on earth and led a life of leisure and promiscuity, annoying women of other creatures. One day, the gods, tired of such behavior, decided to impose an eternal and exemplary punishment. They ordered all the female stars to leave Earth to live in the dark sky, illuminating the forest with its glow. Since then, the male stars were left on Earth to inhabit the jungles and suffering loneliness of living without their partners. That was how they were born fireflies. They also say that since then, every time a shooting star appears in the sky, all the fireflies flying to meet him with the hope that his beloved is who escaped from heaven to give the match. “

The legends and stories like this may seem fragile and difficult to maintain; however, they are as solid in the native worldview as the hardest of woods or large river stones. They represent the oral tradition of the Amazon peoples, their identity and a connection with the gods and ancestors. Thanks to them, natives Mishaja Mañuco and learned from their parents that taricaya turtle man is a friend and who cares for us before the fearsome eel; certain lianas can give water to the thirsty walker or singing pinsha, toucan announces the arrival of the rains in the lowlands.

They are about ten in the evening and the fire shines dimly light of Infierno, a three-hour canoe trip from the city of Puerto Maldonado. Around the fire squatted a dozen men, women and children listen carefully to the stories Mishaja. The’ve heard hundreds of times but every night is like the first. On each occasion, and depending usually mood of the narrator, the stories are modified and enriched: the laughter from the audience and one another for hours – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

Mishaja, whose name is Augustine, is one of about six hundred native Ese’eja still inhabit the jungles of southeastern Peru. They, like many other ethnic groups in the lower Amazonian rainforest is threatened the survival of their traditions and customs, its people remain same, because of the new rhythms imposed by modern society.

The nearby community forests are not what they were before. Macaws avoid flying over their homes and the big fish are so rare in the river and trees in the big cities. There is, however, a place where the forest is still rich and lush, where man is only a rare visitor and where nature makes the rules, in the same way it did for millennia. That site is called Candamo and is known today as ‘the last forest without men’ – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

Until a few weeks ago, very few knew of the existence of tropical forests in the southern department of Puno, almost always tied by direct association with the still blue waters of the great lake Titicaca Puno and mushroom hats of farmers of the Altiplano – Puno tours.

Augustine Mishaja was perhaps the first of the Ese’eja natives know these distant lands. With only ten years old and charged only with his little bow and some arrows, he accompanied his father on a trip to the wilds of height, in order to explore new areas for hunting and fishing. His people-once Nomade required to relocate due to the gradual depletion of hunting around the small village, then located somewhere in the headwaters of the rivers Chuncho and La Torre. At that time, Augustine and his father walked for weeks through virgin forests and untouched rivers, covering areas that had never seen any man. They finally came to a small settlement of settlers engaged in cutting and sawing wood. It was the first time that Augustine saw a Western man. Nearly four decades later, the camp took the name Sandia, becoming the principal town in the jungle advanced mountain Puno – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

But Augustine and his father soon returned to the woods. Back home they spoke to his people in the presence of white men in the upper reaches of rivers, mountains and modern tools they had never seen before. Augustine, however, was deeply impressed by the woods he had known. This busy group of settlers yes they were new to him, but the wonderful jungles why he walked long beyond his capacity for wonder. He had never seen so many macaws, tapirs and many many deer in one area; there fish swimming in crystal calm waters of the river and even the elusive jaguar showed travelers, forcing them to flee twice by the river before the threatening presence of the largest predators of manu rainforest floor.

Candamo Forests are located in the extreme south of the department of Puno, at an altitude of 850 m. Access to them is an adventure, an almost epic journey which involves travel more than 300 miles of winding rivers dodging waterfalls, riffles and dangerous infested waters stripes and electric eels. The journey begins in the bustling town of Puerto Maldonado, located at the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers. Aboard one of the canoes for hire, usually equipped with an outboard engine, some fuel rods and classic small-small as engine parts, the journey takes us upstream Tambopata for a full day. At the end of the first day of travel, will be behind the lands of the Native Community of Infierno and the mouths of the rivers La Torre, Malinowski and Chuncho, camping on the quiet sandy beaches Upper Tambopata tours, and far from the last settlement human in the reserved area in the lowland rainforest of Manu.

The next day starts leaving the Tambopata tours to enter, provided upstream Távara the scenic river, a tributary descending pristine mountain carving and forming a spectacular canyon between lush rainforests. Ascend the river is a chore Távara reserved only for the most experienced riders. With only a few feet of water and strong currents, it must overcome countless rocky steps and often slide the boats on logs to overcome accidents in the narrow channel of stone in the lowland rainforest of Manu.

Browse the entire length of Távara can take, depending on the skill of the boatman and the amount of water in the river, between one and three days, to finally reach the point where the river divides into two even smaller tributaries. On the left the mighty river Macaw, impossible to navigate because of the huge stones that form its bed, and right hand Candamo our destination – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

During the first few kilometers upstream of Candamo, the situation varies very little in relation to Távara with abundant waterfalls and steps very difficult. However, after a few hours the channel deepens allowing navigation even with the outboard. It is here, in a natural setting of indescribable beauty surrounded by mountains, the valley widens to form a pot luck or undulating plain of great extent. One area that even with the help of satellite images, it is impossible to observe due to constant cloud cover that covers almost permanently. It is for this reason that researchers dubbed this area simply as ‘The Cloud’ in the lowland forest – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

In the depths of Candamo, nearly five days of river travel, and the heart of a region of nearly one million hectares where human presence is nil, nature has deployed all its vitality. Here time seems to have stopped showing the same appearance was 10,000 years ago. The polished stone beaches are home to herds of capybara, the largest rodent in the world, competing for seedlings with tapirs and red deer. The quiet, clear waters are home to giant black zúngaros and shoals of cops, tarpon and maidens, and the hunting of alligators and otters older Earth: the otters. The adjacent, dense and almost impenetrable forest provides refuge for ocelots, pumas and jaguars that roam their domains following the great herds of peccaries and peccaries. The trees are home to the lazy and the anteater, porcupine and coatis, along with a legion of birds that seem to compete in color and originality: Wild Turkeys whose song mimics the fall of a large tree, noisy parrots and macaws, toucans with peaks appear-ber has been decorated by modern artists and small tanagers and hummingbirds whose plumage reproduce the colors of the rainbow tinged with metallic and glitter atornasolados – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

In sum, the realized dream of every naturalist and ironically, land longed for a handful of natives exposed to unstoppable advance of Western civilization, to images of intact forests are growing them outside in the lowland rainforest of manu more low, remove the last log of the stove and gently rub it on the wet ground to avoid unnecessarily consumed. It’s bedtime and sleepy children leave home with their mothers. The moon light that illuminates with unusual force in the community of Infierno and, once again, the two friends smoke a cigar in silence watching the river. No words are necessary. One thought occupies their minds and host your dreams tonight. Someday return to Tambopata tours.

It covers a total of 537.053.25 hectares belonging to the provinces of Tambopata tours and Sandia, in the departments of Madre de Dios and Puno. Its territory was defined from portions of the Tambopata Reserved Zone and formerly called the National Shrine of the Pampas del Heath. Its main objective is to conserve the extraordinary biodiversity of the region and the protection of the only existing sample in Peru humid tropical savannas and its unique flora and fauna.


Established on May 29, 1973 by Supreme Decree N °. 0644-73-AG on a total of 1,532,806 hectares belonging to the departments of Cusco tours and Madre de Dios, and extended to 1 ‘716,295.22 hectares through the Supreme Decree N °. 045-2002-AG from July 14, 2002, after the incorporation of most of the disabled Manu Reserved Zone. It has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1987 and, as the core of a Biosphere Reserve in 1977, The Park protects spectacular altitudinal transect running from the peaks of the Andes, at 4,000 meters above sea level to 200 m high, and that includes almost all subtropical ecological formations of southeastern Peru: Andean grasslands, elfin forest or tall cloud forest, high forest and Amazonian lowlands, including a number of species unmatched in the world – “Manu Trips Jungle “.

The main objectives of its creation are conserving representative samples of biodiversity of the rain forest of southeastern Peru, to contribute to regional development through research and monitoring of environmental parameters. Also, the park aims to develop programs related to anthropological communities settled in their territories and areas of influence. Besides native Amazonian peoples residing inside (Matsiguenka, Amahuaca, yine, Amarakaeri, Huachipaire, masheo-Piro and Nahua, etc.) exist in the vicinity over thirty peasant communities who maintain their ancestral customs and language Quechua as mother. In the park there are also numerous archaeological remains yet also studied other well-known as petroglyphs Pusharo in Palotoa River region, and the ruins of Mameria.

The objectives of its creation, the preservation of natural, cultural and landscape values of the area, protect uplands erosion risks and promote the conservation of the natural resources in their areas on three pillars: the maintenance of ecological processes , preservation of biodiversity and use natural resources sustainably. In its domains are the famous macaw clay lick and Pukirieri Ese’eja and ethnic groups belonging to language families and Harakmbet Tacana respectively and organized in 4 communities: Palma Real, Sonene, Hell and Kotsimba – “Manu Jungle Trips “.

A flock of blue and yellow macaws (Ara ara-rauna) is grouped around a lick or clay cliffs along the river Tambopata tours. Your daily visit to these places has become the need of these birds to ingest minerals in the main tourist attraction in the Amazon region of Peru.

Travel to the “Pacaya – Samiria” National Reserve Manu Jungle Trips:

Established on February 4, 1982 by Supreme Decree N °. -AG 016-82, covers a total of 2,080,000 hectares belonging to the provinces of Loreto, Requena, Ucayali and Alto Amazonas, Loreto department. Pacaya-Samiria is the largest protected area in the country – “Manu Jungle Trips”.

If Brazil has the Pantanal and Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the Peru can be proud to have among its Pacaya-Samiria natural sanctuaries. Over two million acres of lakes, lakes, swamps and wetlands together in this magical place to become a magnet for aquatic wildlife. And we are not just referring to hundreds of species of fish-from the gigantic paiches 300 kilos to ornamentales- tiny fish, but to the great diversity of creatures that depend on water to survive, including man.

The main purpose of the reserve is the conservation of large aquatic ecosystems representative of the Peruvian lowland Amazonia and wide genetic diversity; promote research on the flora and fauna, both rerrestre as skiing, and ensure their proper management, particularly those threatened species and the current and potential use; and promote the development of surrounding populations through the rational use of natural resources as well as through the jungle tourism with “Manu Jungle Trips”.

In recent years, conservation projects developed by local people with support from technical agencies are achieving very positive results in the recovery and management of populations of aquatic turtles (taricaya and cupiso) and some of the fish species of major commercial importance region (paiche and araguana).
