Continue to Paucartambo, a picturesque Spanish colonial town, and then to the Acjanacu pass, which marks the beginning of the Cultural Zone of Manu Biosphere Reserve. Here, a thick cloak of clouds provides perpetual humidity and makes an ideal habitat for epiphytic plants such as bromeliads. This varied and fascinating world is home of the Cock of the Rock, Spectacled Bear, Orchids, Tree Ferns (one of the oldest living plants), mosses and lichens. This cloud forest exists between 2000 and 3500 meters above sea level and at least 50% of the plant species found here are endemic to this region. Overnight in our open air lodge "San Pedro".

Day 7: Cloud Forest – Pilocapata – Atalaya – Jungle Lodges (B) (L) (D)
Today you will wake up very early to observe, from a platform, the Cock of the Rock (Rupicola peruviana), Peru's national bird. The male birds are a vibrant reddish orange, and at about 5:00AM as many as several dozen come together for an exhibition of a mating ritual dance in a place called Lek. The males display their crest, showing off and posturing for the females. The females, fewer in number, watch to select the most suitable males. After breakfast continue your overland transport down the narrow road between waterfalls and canyons toward the town of Pilcopata* and then to the Atalaya port. Here, your will board a covered, outboard motor boat and head down the Alto Madre de Dios River for approximately 15 minutes towards the private reserve of "Erika" where you will hike through the interesting trail system that this transitional area between high and low jungle offers. Overnight in the selected Lodge.

Day 8: Jungle Lodge – Boca Manu – P.V Limonal. (B) (L) (D)
After breakfast board your canoe for a three-hours ride down the Alto Madre de Dios River to Boca Manu's airstrip. (Optional flight from Cusco to Boca-Manu; this means that some new members may join our group, the plane flies over the Andes to a narrow gravel landing strip in the jungle, the flight takes approximately 45 minutes). Boca Manu´s village is situated a short distance from the confluence of the Manu River with the Alto Madre de Dios River place where you can buy your last fresh supplies and cold drinks before setting off again in the canoe. Then, enter the Manu River and the Reserved Zone, stopping in a white sand beach where you will camp along the riverbank. Short walk around the area.

Day 9: P.V Limonal – Salvador Lake. (B) (L) (D)
After registering in the official tourist logbook at Limonal, the Park Rangers Headquarters and eating an early breakfast, follow the Manu River until you arrive Salvador Lake, our base safari campsite (screened dining room, bathrooms, radio communication is available). This canoe ride gives the opportunity to observe the immensity of the rainforest and the diversity of birdlife, reptiles and mammals. You will often see animals sunning themselves on beaches, or foraging for food in the trees lining the riverbanks. Arrive early in the afternoon and have lunch before setting off on a jungle trail. You time will be spent looking for wildlife inside the rainforest and on Salvador Oxbow Lake, until the sun goes down and you return to the camp. Explore Salvador Lake by paddling quietly along on a catamaran, giving you the opportunity to observe unique species of birds, monkeys, caimans and with luck the Giant Otter (Pteronura brasiliensis). This endangered species can be seen swimming, fishing, eating and playing.

Day 10: Salvador Lake – Otorongo – Salvador Lake. (B) (L) (D)
Rise early in the morning, as the forest is awakened by the Red Howler monkey (Aloatta seniculus) declaring its territory. A morning walk before breakfast is a great way to catch wildlife in the pursuit of food, as the temperature is very pleasant at this time of day. After relaxing and swimming in the river enjoy lunch along the riverbank, after this, cross the river to walk an 8-km trail to another oxbow lake called Otorongo. A strategically located observation tower rises 15 meters above the lake and the jungle floor, giving us more chances to observe wildlife including the Giant Otter. Late in the afternoon you can use the catamaran and with the help of flashlights observe the black caimans rise from the depths of the lake and begin their search for prey. Return to the campsite.

Day 11: Salvador Lake – Tambo Blanco. (B) (L) (D)
Once again wake up early to enjoy a brief morning walk and have breakfast, then pack up camp and go down steem the interesting Manu River. Arrive at Boca Manu midday, this village is situated a short distance from the confluence of the Manu and Alto Madre de Dios rivers. From here you will descend the Madre de Dios River arriving early in the afternoon after three hours ride to Blanco Private Reserve. Camp at the safari campsite and spend one more night in this magical Amazon jungle.

Day 12: Tambo Blanco – Macaws Clay Lick – Boca Manu. (B) (L) (D)
After a very early wake up, use a special hide in the river shore in front to the "Collpa" macaw lick to quietly observe the various parrots feeding on the clay for mineral and salt supplements to their diet of seeds and fruits. The brightly colored macaws usually wait patiently in the surrounding trees until the smaller parrot species have left the area. Slowly, the macaws come down to the clay wall to feed. We need a lot of patience and silence on the catamaran so as not to disturb them as they eat the clay. Around mid morning we board a canoe to return to the airstrip at Boca Manu, where you will catch your plane back to Cusco.

Day 13: Boca Manu – Atalaya – Cusco. (B) (L)
