Cusco to Manu National Park Tour Details
Manu Amazon Tours

Cusco to Manu National Park four day tour with our English-speaking local naturalist guide takes you deep into the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. This is one of the popular Manu Amazon Tours as it includes prime activities from birdwatching and animal spotting to introduction to Amazonian traditions and native family visits. 

Manu National Park dominates the vast majority of the Peruvian Amazon region. It is spread in over a million hectares. To make it more accessible, authorities have divided the National park into three zones – Cultural Zone, Biosphere Reserve Zone, and Core Zone. Access to the Core zone is restricted to researchers and scientists. 

Manu Cultural Zone and Biosphere reserve are open for tourism. They are home to distinct flora and fauna. It is ideal for nature lovers to do some bird watching. In 1987, UNESCO declared Manu National Park a world heritage site.

On this four-day trip, we will be taking you through some of the untouched regions of Manu. You will have plenty of opportunities to spot animals and birds in their natural habitat. You will learn about the Amazonian rituals and savor their traditional food for every meal. 

Tours to Manu National Park in Peru are a popular activity primarily due to its close proximity to Cusco. Often after finishing the tours to Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, you can simply embark on a 5-6 hours drive to get to the cloud forests. 

At Peru Jungle Trips, we take pride in working exclusively with local tour guides. Our native experts have plenty of things to share with you which will give you a detailed insight into the life of locals and their traditions.
