Frequently asked questions (FAQs):
MANU NATIONAL PARK RESERVE CENTER
Nowhere is amazing diversity more evident than in the tropical and temperate forests and associated habitats of the Reserva Biosfera de Manu (hereafter called Manu
Biosphere Reserve, the name by which most birders know it) in the southeast of Peru. The Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of nearly 1.9 million ha, comprised of the
Manu National Park, associated multiple‑use zones and native community lands. Manu lies on the eastern slope of the Andes and protects almost the entire watershed of the
Manu River and most tributaries of the Alto Madre de Díos River. The reserve encompasses a vast range of altitudinal zones and habitat types, peaking at more than
4,000 m in the high, cold Andes, and descending to hot, humid lowland Amazonian forests at 350 m. Up to ten types of lowland forest have been identified in this part of the
south‑west Amazon, and these can be further subdivided into many distinctive microhabitats. This biological wealth is also evident at the species level. Some 300
species of tree are often crammed into a single hectare of lowland forest. More than 1,300 butterfly species have been recorded in one area of Manu (Pakitza). During a
typical tour, wildlife‑watchers encounter at least eight species of primate, enjoy the South American Tapir (Tapirus terrestris) and other mammals by night at clay‑licks, bump into
a family of giant otters (Pteronura brasilensis) on an oxbow lake, and frequently see jaguar (Panthera onca) along rivers. But it is the avian diversity that tends to enthrall
most visitors to Manu. The total of 1,020 recorded species is not only higher than that of any other protected area in the world, but also eclipses that of many entire countries
(even popular birding destinations such as Costa Rica). Moreover, two‑thirds of the reserve remains unexplored; many additional bird species and, remarkably, uncontacted indigenous tribes are likely to inhabit these remote areas.
OUR LODGE IN MANU CULTURE ZONE – MANU NATIONAL PARK
PERUVIAN JUNE 4 days: A mysterious, almost prehistoric landscape is created by the presence of arborescent ferns. They are true ferns, but grow with the size of small
trees. Small ferns are also abundant. Mosses, lichens, and ferns are some of the oldest plants on Earth and, curiously, they all rely on mobile sperm for sexual reproduction.
Therefore, rain has to fall to allow the sperm of the plants to move on the wet surfaces of the plant, with the ultimate goal of finding an egg and breeding. Of course this
process is inextricably linked to the aqueous origins of these plants in the Peruvian * In many Andean myths, the cloud forest is considered a realm of moral darkness, evil, and
betrayal. The foundations of this belief could be due to an Incan legend. According to the legend, the Indians of the lower jungle climbed through the cloud forest and
looted the capital of the Incas of Cusco, not once, but several times in the Peruvian Manu Jungle. Cloud forests support numerous species of plants and animals found in
the lowland rainforest, but they also house many endemic species, such as spectacled bear and rooster gall. Of all the tropical ecosystems, the cloud forest is the least
studied. In fact, high levels of endemism may be a defining feature of tropical cloud forests. In the tropical Andes, about 40% of bird species are endemic, compared to
19% in the Amazon. New species of endemic birds have obviously been only recently discovered, because some cloud forests are so remote and it can be difficult to access the Peruvian Manu Jungle.
*Obviously, persistent cloud cover results in a significant reduction of sunlight in cloud forests as compared to tropical lowland forests. There is much precipitation in the form
of rain for up to 6 years and also for the direct interception of the humidity of the clouds. With cool temperatures and abundant humidity, there is usually low
evapotranspiration. In a process called “cloud stripping,” the leaves cause moisture to condense from the clouds. Water forms continuously on plant surfaces and drips to
the ground. It is not surprising that the soil is moist and sometimes even waterlogged in Manu Selva Peruana.
*Manu Peruvian Jungle This tour is designed for those who do not own too much time, but the desire to experience the Manu National Park! During the Peruvian Jungle
Manu, visiting the Culture Zone of the Manu National Park offers a visit of 3 types of forests: Andean mountain forest, dwarf forest and a cloud forest! This last one is the
only place to detect a gallito of the rocks (national bird of Peru) and a mono choro !!. The highest point of the Peruvian Manu Forest reaches 3,600 m and the lowest is only
400 m.a.s.l. Located in the Amazon Basin. In addition, we are given the opportunity to navigate in hollowed tree trunks used by native Amazonian people on Lake Machuwasi!
