Tour to Manu National Park 4 Days


Tour to Manu National Park 4 Days

Uncover the amazon’s mysteries and legends on this great adventure, live this fascinating trip to the vast national park in the Amazon Basin which covers almost 20,000 sq km (12,427 sq mi) and is one of the best places in South America to see a stunning variety of tropical wildlife. Progressive in its emphasis on preservation, Unesco declared Manu a Biosphere Reserve in 1977 and a World Natural Heritage Site in 1987. Entry is only with guide and permit.

One reason the park is so successful in preserving such a large tract of virgin jungle and its wildlife is that it’s remote and relatively inaccessible to people, and therefore has not been exploited by rubber tappers, loggers, oil companies or hunters. The Manu national park is doubtless the world has one of the most pristine primary rain forest, this part of the jungle of Peru is home for many species of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, and home for many species of trees, orchids, ferns, etc. Likewise it includes several oxbow lakes, and clay licks where hundreds of birds including macaws feed on clay. Besides during this excursión you will visit the native community. When you’re done, sit back & re-live the memories over a perfect Pisco Sour.

Manu: We Explore Farther… All the Way to the Amazon Jungle Pristine

Many Amazon Jungle itinerary options exist, and they are all different. In holding our focus on the most prolific wildlife destinations, we head far upstream to the confluence of two major tributaries, the Madre de Dios and the Manu, which, comprise the headwaters of the world’s largest water artery. On foot and by boat, we explore the Manu National Park that encompasses the most pristine part of the Amazon region in searching for abundant and diverse wildlife. You won’t find a more remote rainforest experience like this, it’ll be an experience of a lifetime.

DAY 1: Cusco – Cloud Forest – Bamboo Lodge

The following Tour to Manu National Park 4 days itinerary is only a sample, which can vary depending on the availability of the local lodges.

4:30 AM pick up at your hotel in our private minivan. Today our goal lies to get to San Pedro. Our first stop will be (The Tombs), a historic Pre-Inca site at Ninamarca, “the place of fire” in Quechua. Afterwards, we’ll travel for four hours through fabulous mountain vistas and valleys, passing through Paucartambo (the folkloric capital of Cusco) which boasts beautiful Spanish colonial architecture and a stone bridge. Then we proceed to the lookout point at Acjanaco at the pass 4,000m (13,123 ft) where we enter Manu National Park. From here we travel through pristine cloud forest which feeds the local flora unique to this clime. The landscape is stunning: we will pass many waterfalls, sweeping views of the valley and dense cloud forest vegetation: mosses, lichens, orchids and birds unique to this part of the world ply the mountainside. Capuchin monkeys and wooly monkeys can also be seen. All meals included except breakfast.

Overnight at the Bamboo Lodge or Guadalupe Lodge.

DAY 2: Bamboo Lodge – Machuwasi Lagoon – Pantiacolla Lodge

Very early after breakfast, we’ll visit the surrounding garden and orchard, and Coca plantation. Your guide will explain medicinal plants and exotic fruits grown here in the area. After a short trip in the minivan, we reach Atalaya and board our motorized riverboat heading through the turbulent Alto Madre de Dios river to calmer waters where we’ll stop and trek to a beautiful lagoon (Lago Machuwasi).Here live the among many fascinating birds, the loud prehistoric birds like hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazín), and The Screamer (Anhima cornuta Arauco), egrets, etc. As well as caimans. With its reflective waters and rich wildlife, it’s a truly wonderful experience on the balsam pole rafts.

Already in our Pantiacolla’s area, we will have a chance to see howler monkeys resting in the trees, river otters bathing, or capibaras nosing for food on the shores. To tell you frankly, here in our private reserve you will encounter primary forest still intact because of the value of tourists coming to visit it. Here we can show you original and traditional fauna of old: medicinal plants, giant trees (ficus estrangulador), hardwood trees, bamboo forests, and leks for mammals and parrots, which can be experienced exclusively by our travelers only. Here you can also choose to go for a guided night walk to see nocturnal animals and insects.

Overnight at the Pantiacolla Lodge, a hidden stilted house camouflaged in the forest. Strategically located over a Bambu forest, it makes for great viewing of the nocturnal animals and diurnal animals like monkeys, birds, and others. All meals included.

DAY 3: Parrot Clay Lick – Bamboo Lodge

In the early hours of the morning, we need to be in front of the macaw lek to catch them eating the salty mud off the river bank wall. Hundreds of macaw and parrots can be seen stripping off the clay and clamoring away at their work. Who knows, maybe toucans, howler monkeys, the shy river otter or with luck the capybara might make an appearance. On the opposite bank of the river, we’ll wait silently to see what appears. After breakfast, we’ll take a jungle trip to see the enormous ancient trees that tower just five kilometers from the reserve. While walking among exotic rainforest trees, we will see Aleton tree, Ceiba, and the beautiful Ficus. On the forest floor, lizards, frogs, lots of species of ants from the smallest to the largest, and many other species and rare species. At the treetops, you will be surprised by a spectacular scenery where wildlife develops its life which is very good for bird watching. Enjoy and learn the life of insects and about the interpretation of the primary and secondary components of the rainforest, as well as the human impact and the importance of the rainforest for our planet.

After a great exploration of the jungle, we will go back to our lodge for lunch. We will then take our skiff to drive upstream to reach our next lodge. Once at this lodge, a guided night walk is possible. All meals included.

Overnight at the Bamboo Lodge.

DAY 4: Bamboo Lodge – Cusco

Early in the morning, we start our trip back by river skiff, accompanied by flocks of passing birds. Again we have a good chance to view capybaras (the largest rodent in the world) on the river banks. Our destination is Atalaya where we take a short break to change to our minivan and then head back to Cusco. We will pass again through the cloud forest and stop for lunch on the way, on one of the lovely bends over the valley. At about the 6:00 pm we will reach our hotel in Cusco, where will drop you off, end of our adventure. All meals included, except dinner.

Our Peru Summit Adventures staff are friendly, funny, with deep knowledge on the route and destination, and great storytellers. We love what we do and it’s obvious. A simple concept, yes, but it makes all the difference. The team at Peru Summit Adventures all live and breathe the trip, experience, adventure, (you’ll see this when you arrive!). We love what we do, and it’s obvious. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel the buzz and excitement that Peru Summit Adventures offers.

Small Groups Mean Intimate Nature, Wildlife and Cultural Encounters. Could you imagine trying to hike silently along an isolated trail, carefully not disturbing shy wildlife, with 10 or 20 other travelers? Or walking on a remote area to explore the pristine wilderness with dozens of other tourists at your side? We know meaningful nature encounters must be undertaken in small groups. That’s why our trips come with an average of just four travelers, by far the smallest groups in the tourism industry across the country. This not only guarantees you more personal close-up wildlife experience, but a less-impact presence on the earth’s brittle natural places we love.

We are very confident the quality of our Manu National Park 4 Days will get your expectations and that you will savor the best possible of cultural travel experience, nature travel experience, and adventure travel experience if you are dissatisfied, we’ll happily give you credit for an extra trip or for a future journey. It’s, to our knowledge, the best guarantee in the travel business.

We don’t believe any other tour companies make comparable trips when you take into account our unique itineraries and signature itineraries, impressive locations, small groups and quality Trek Leaders / Tour Leaders. But, should you come across a similar itinerary or matching itinerary of our quality at a cheaper price, even within 45 days after booking with us, we will happily refund the difference. It’s how we deliver our promise.

While other tour companies generally cancel their trips due to low participation of travelers or outsource to other big group tour operators for their travelers, we guarantee that we will never cancel a trip because of low signing-up or participation for the departure date neither get our travelers to other tour operators! This makes to our travelers the assurance and peace of mind to know their travel plans are insured and guaranteed.

Probably you will see that most of the tour operators mention it on their websites that are local tour companies, however, if you research a little deeper you will find out that’s not true, they might be although half of the operation is done from here and another half abroad, they even have NorthAmerican phone number or European phone numbers, which is a clue to find out, we are not against the foreigner companies or half foreign companies, what we are against is that they lie.

In Cusco exist just few truly local tour operators. If you did not know, foreign companies come to Peru to get rich without paying a General Sales Tax or Tax Contribution to our country. If you did not know that, according to the United Nations, for every US $100 spent on a tour in a developing country or foreign travel companies, only $5 stays in the local economy. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. As we are a local family enterprise, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians through contributing to general sales tax.

Be a responsible traveller! Let’s make this world a better place for everyone and for everyone that lives in it! The natural environments that we travel to are fragile and abundant with beautiful culture and traditions that are often reliant on tourism. We have a responsibility as travelers to minimize the impact of our presence, protect what is delicate, and leave a positive influence everywhere we can.

As a locally owned and based Peruvian tour company, we integrate these practices into our in-country operations we are aiming for a style of travel that makes the world a better place for everyone, and for everyone that lives in it. Since our very first days as a tour operator, responsible business has been at the heart of what we do. Peru Summit Adventures is committed not just to treading lightly, but to making a real difference by helping and investing in local communities, education initiatives, environmental conservation projects. These values are not more than just words, they are ingrained in the culture and philosophy of our crew, daily operations of Peru Summit Adventures trips, and at our office too.

10/10 Amazing experience

If you’re thinking about which agency to use, look no further- Ray and Jimmy went well above and beyond and made this a memorable, safe, fun, and professional experience.

Ray is the most knowledgeable guide I’ve ever had in any country for any excursion - during both the Short Inka Trail and the actual tour of Machu Picchu, Ray’s expertise shined through in his ability to give us a detailed background on every aspect of the history, climate, nature, flora, animals.. anything!

Likewise, Ray and Jimmy were truly the friendliest, kindest hosts that I could have imagined our group having.

Thank you both so much and I will definitely book with you again if (when) I come back!

Awesome experience!!

Did the 2 day Inca trail with Ray and Jimmy they were great and knowledgeable. Ray not only guided us along trail to Machu Picchu but also was an excellent photographer and taught us the history. It was a group of 10 and we had a great time. Even everything going on in Peru, we always felt in good hands.

Short Inca Trial (2-Day)

This tour was the perfect experience for our (group of 10) short trip to Peru. The trail was sometimes challenging, but the views and history made it all worth it. Ray and Jimmy were our guides and imparted sooo much knowledge about the history of Peru, Inca, and beyond. I would definitely recommend!

It was perfect! On the first day we had a great time exploring the Sacred Valley and see the main attractions and learn about the history of this beautiful place.

I would definitely recommend the short Inka trail, I think it was the best way to get to know Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. We arrived at Machu Picchu when most of the crowd was gone and it felt really special.

You won’t regret booking with this tour company, especially if Liz Montesinos is your guide. My boyfriend and I did the 4 day Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain (private) tour. The tour covered everything; from transportation, hotels, meals, tickets and entrance fees, to stops at local places we would’ve never known to go or check out. We did a private tour because for us we felt this would help us get the most out of our time and experience in Peru

Best mix of adventure, history and nature: Sacred Valley & Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

4-day trekking option seemed too intense for us, but we still wanted to experience the entrance to Machu Picchu through the ancient Inka trail, so we opted for Orange Nation’s combination of Sacred Valley & Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I couldn’t be more happy about our decision.

We booked and paid the deposit to Orange Nation / Sam travel for the 4 day Inca Trail and Machu Pichu trip back in 2019. But we couldn't travel in 2020 and 2021 - but the company honoured our agreement and so we came back in 2022.

My girl and i did the Machu Pichu trek tour with Orange Nation. It was seriously the most amazing experience that we'll never forget. Gorgeous views! The long trek was worth the amazing view. The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We considered other tours but chose Orange Nation because we liked the idea of smaller groups and this was definitely worth it. I will be using Orange Nation again next year when I come back to Peru!

Wow, what a wonderful trekking experience! My trip to Peru was amazing thanks to this awesome tour that i took with Orange Nation. I did multiple tours with this company. I'm a solo traveler and everyone in my group was always still friendly and did not make me feel left out. I loved going off the beaten track with this company. It's much better to pay extra to go off the path for the quality experience of this amazing guided tour They definitely helped guide us and gave us a quality experience with a small group and paid special attention to each one of us. I highly recommend using Orange Nation for your next tour in Peru!
