This tour allows you to visit the dwarf forest of Acjanaco known as the entrance to the Manu National Park and the cloud forest where the king of the woods is the cock of the rock which is Peru´s national bird. You will be surprised by the natural talent of this bird as he preforms his mating dance which you can observe from the platform of the LEK. This is a welcome stop on our way to the Eco-Lodge “Bambu Lodge”.
To wake up at sunrise to the song of thousands of birds is something you will never forget. We will be heading further into the rainforest through small local villages until we reach the port of Atalaya where our motorized boat will be waiting for us. An exciting boat ride along the river Madre de Dios awaits us before we settle for the night in the Lodge “Soga de Oro”. We are now in the rainforest of the Manu where the natural sound and the fresh air will soothe you.
You can explore lake Machuwasi on a thatched raft like the locals have used for thousands of years. Take a walk around the lake and look for the CEIBA PENTANDRA a giant indigenous tree and finally observe the parrots at the salt lick.
