Itinerary:

Day 1:

As we leave behind Cuzco, the Inca capital, we go up a road that winds along the Andes mountains. On the way, we'll visit the Ninamarca Chullpas, Pre-Inca tombs that belonged to the Lupacas. From here onward, we start descending towards the town of Paucartambo. We then leave Paucartambo to go up to the Puna, a region that shelters unique species, such as the Vizcacha, a beautiful rodent that looks like a rabbit. The Puna is also the habitat of rarely seen predators, such as the Andean fox and the puma. As we reach 3.500 meters over sea level, a broad curtain of clouds appears before our eyes hiding the dense jungle underneath it. In Tres Cruces we'll watch the eastern side of the Andes covered by clouds.

We have now entered the Manu National Park, only 5 hours away from beautiful and frequented Cuzco City. With the spectacular landscape of the cloud forest before us, we take a break in our trip to have lunch. After that, we descend to the Cloudy Forest where the misty tree tops are full of epiphytes, mosses and lichens. In this Cloudy Forest we'll stop to search for the Peruvian national bird, the striking Gallito de las Rocas (Rupicola Peruviana).
