DESCRIPTION:

The Manu National Park ATV circuit is one of the best you’ll have ever known in your life and is made for adventure lovers only. This is a two day tour in one of the largest national parks in the world. Virtually, the entire park consists of virgin tropical forests of several types, including a cross section of Eastern Andean ecosystems, from upper tropical forest on the cordillera’s foothills, through all ecological levels; from subtropical cloud forest, to elfin forest and moist high grassland, at the summits of the Eastern Cordillera. The Manu’s Biosphere Reserve contains many rare and fascinating species of animals and trees which people have already eliminated from most parts of the Amazon Basin and sourrounding mountains. You’ll start this incredible adventure in Paucartambo, along dirt roads, through the high lands, passing some beautiful “chullpas”, to later on get to the “Cloud Forest” and already be inside the jungle, where you’ll be able to observe many species of animals like the spider monkey, woolly monkey, seven species of macaws, the giant river otter, over 1,000 bird species and 15,000 plant species, as well as a great diversity of insects and spiders.The overnight stay in a wonderful and quiet lodge, behind some beautiful waterfalls, will give you another incredible experience.
