Overview

Manu Jungle Trips 6 days, In order to preserve its huge diversity of flora and fauna and pristine areas, Manu was declared a National Park in 1973, designated a World Biosphere Reserve in 1977 and made a World Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987. It covers an area of 1.5 million hectares and is one of the largest protected areas in South America.

It is situated in a spectacular, untouched area of south-eastern Peru and is possibly the sole, accessible piece of pristine rainforest that exists in the world today; a number of indigenous tribes who have never had contact with outsiders also continue to live in the Park. Manu Jungle Trips 6 days.

There is a huge range of altitude in the Park; from high Andes (4.200m/13.779ft) to cloud forests to lowland tropical Manu Jungle Trips (150m/492ft). This altitude variation accounts for the huge diversity of plant and animal species that exist in the territory. It is estimated that at least 10% of plants found in Manu are unknown by science!

There are also about 200 species of mammals, more than 800 bird species, the largest diversity of amphibians in the Amazon basin and more insect species in one tree than the total of insect species registered in the British Isles!!! It is considered one of the most bio-diverse zones on earth!

Apart from the amazing variety of wildlife, the journey from Cusco to the park is spectacular. It is a 2-day journey through mountains, cloud forest and lowland rainforest. Manu Jungle Trips 6 days. The scenery of snow-peaks and glaciers is dramatically beautiful and make the sometimes precarious descents worthwhile!
