Parque Nacional del Manu

MADRE DE DIOS – Manu National Park

Known as the “most pristine jungle of the amazon basin”, the Manu National Park is an extension of 15,328Km2 located on the east slope of the Andes. The Biosphere Reserve includes an additional 2,570km2 and a further 914km2 are considered a “cultural area”.

The Manu National Park was preserved thanks to its inaccessibility.

It can be reached by road from Cusco, by air (travelling on small aircrafts and landing in Boca Manu) or by river (up streams the Tambopata river).

The park includes several ecological zones and keeps an extraordinary biodiversity: 15,000 species of plants, 250 varieties of trees, over 1,000 species of birds.

It is also admired for keeping one of the highest abundances of land vertebrates ever found in Latin American tropical forests. Besides, human habitation is reserved to native communities.
