Flora and Fauna:

The scientific interest that the Manu awakens is based on the great diversity of species of flora and fauna that is one of the largest in the world and that remains almost unchanged in millions of years of natural evolution. The biggest research point of the park is the biological station of Cocha Cashu, which has the best ecological database of the entire South American tropics; that station was built in 1969 by professors and students of the National Agrarian University La Molina in agreement with Zoological Society of Frankfurt. There are many studies that have been carried out in the station that receives annually between 20 and 30 scientists from all over the world; However, the work done is little in comparison to the possibilities offered by the Park.Now we will emntion some of the most representative species of flora and fauna:

Climates - Seasons 

In this area only two seasons are known, drought and rain, with sudden friajes throughout the year. The magnitude of the reserve is located within the dividing line of the waters of the Manu River of 250 kilometers long, one of the rivers that flow from the Andes and join to form the powerful Amazon River. Most of the lower areas of the park (400 meters above sea level) receive approximately two cubic meters of rain annually, twice as much as in New York City. A lot of this rain falls during the months of October or November and April or May. The months of drought are from June to September. During the day the average temperature in the low areas is 35 ° C, during the night the average temperature is 25 ° C. However, throughout the year,cold season coming from the South cause heavy rains that can last one or two days with a maximum temperature of 18 ° C in the day and minimum of 10 ° C at night. In Manu the climate is very variable, which means that during the dry season it can rain at any time and precautions must be taken. 
  • High season: May - December 
  • Low season: January - March

Access roads 

There are two access routes to the Reserved Zone of the Manu National Park
  • It leaves the City of Cusco, in a trip of 12 hours approx. by land and then 6 hours approx. navigating the Alto Madre de Dios and Manu rivers. 
  • From Cusco on a flight (small plane) of 30 minutes to the town of Boca Manu and then 4 hours approx. of navigation on the Manu river. 
Due to its inaccessibility and high cost, the minimum duration of the excursions to the Manu is four days, but we recommend making the seven-day or nine - day excursion. The visit to the National Park is allowed only in the adjacent ones or the called " Reserve Zone" and "Cultural Zone", which have the same attractions and with hostels for tourists.


Cultural Zone 

The Cultural Zone is one of the three zones of the Manu National Park that covers high mountains, cloud forests and low jungle. In this area we find some villages, settlements and native communities working in activities of collection, agriculture and logging on a smaller scale controlled directly by the Ministry of Agriculture and the authorities. One of the purposes of this area is to act as a buffer zone to the Reserved and Intangible Zones. 
  • Cloudy forest: Crossing the South Eastern Andes, travelers usually encounter a layer of clouds that marks the beginning of the Cloud Forest. This mysterious and spectral world home of species such as the Cock of the Rocks, the Bear of eyeglasses, fern trees, bromeliads and orchids in a range of heights of 3,500 m.a.s.l up to 1,500, being the least studied and cataloged area, this area contains at least 50% of endemic plants, plants that are not found anywhere else in the world. Dense haze and frequent rains (around 6 meters per year) sustain the continuity of a dense evergreen forest in a process called "dew", when the leaves cause condensation due to moisture from the perpetual layer of clouds, which is why the The surface of the plants are always wet, dropping the drops on the ground. The perpetual humidity of the Cloud Forest makes it an ideal environment for epiphytes, plants that live on other plants taking nutrients from their surroundings, not the soils. The earth accumulated in the branches causes mosses and lichens to begin their colonization process that later triggers the growth of ferns, bromeliads and orchids.

Reserved Zone

This area, located on both sides of the Manu River, covers a vast expanse of primary forest that is dedicated to only two activities: tourism and research. Being the river the only way to access this area is relatively easy to have control and protection to unauthorized persons to enter. Scientists consider this area as a laboratory for the mega diversity of flora and fauna. 
  • Manu River: The warm, chocolate-colored waters of the Manu River that starts in the eastern chain of the Andes by the Paso de Fizcarald and ends in Boca Manu when it joins the Alto Madre de Dios River forming one of the most important Hydrographic points of the Jungle South- East of Peru, the Rio Madre de Dios. One of the most important characteristics of this river are its meanders or lagoons formed by the deviation of the river with the passage of time. 
  • Lakes: These are formed by remnants of the river course. When the river by effects of erosion and constant changes are opened by different channels are isolated waters. Along the Manu River you can find several oxbow lakes, two of them frequently visited by us: Salvador being the longest and Otorngo; these lakes offer a spectacular view of the forest. These lakes and the surrounding forest are home to interesting animals such as alligators, avifauna, anacondas, monkeys and giant otters that are in the process of extinction. 
  • Giant Otters: These animals (Pteronura brasilensis) occupy the highest position in the food pyramid of Manu. An aquatic mammal that can measure up to 1.8 meters and weigh more than 32 kilograms. Otters are extremely social animals, they live in family groups that usually hunt in groups using their whiskers to detect fish in the dark waters of the oxbow lakes. An adult can eat up to 4 kilos of fish per day. The giant otters were hunted practically to the point of extermination during the last decades, reason for which they are a species in ways of extinction leaving only a few individuals in the world. Fortunately, the lakes of the Manu River  in the Reserve Zone of the Park there are a large number of them. The giant otters are very territorial animals, so there are high chances to see them in the oxbow lakes of Salvador and Otorongo. If a group is found, then extreme care should be taken not to make watchful movements or noise that frightens them. They are very curious animals that will surely approach the catamaran some 30 or 40 meters away but it is completely forbidden to follow them, much less pursue them since they are also very nervous especially when they have a new member in the family. 
  • Roads: There is a system of roads around Lake Salvador, which allows us to make night walks, and these are usually combined with the use of the catamaran in the lake. Crossing the Manu river and along another path that leads to Lake Otorongo where there is a observation tower. One of the special characteristics of these roads is the observation of giant trees.

Intangible zone 

It is the largest part of the Manu National Park, covering an area of ​​1'800, 000 hectares of primary forests. This intangible zone is one of the largest protected areas in the world and is rich in Flora and Fauna. In this area tourism is not allowed in any aspect is only allowed entry for scientific and biological purposes, as is the case of the biological station of Cocha Cashu, which in the last 25 years, Peruvian and foreign scientists have conducted an investigation in the flora and fauna project. There are many ethnic groups such as the Matshiguenkas / Kugapacoris, Yoras / Yaminahuas, Mashco Piros, Amahuacas and others, some of these groups still have no contact with the outside world. 
  • Collpa Macaws: It is located in the reserved area and near the town of Boca Manu the collpa of the macaws, where you can see one of the most spectacular natural phenomena of the Amazon. Very early and at sunrise in the morning we will begin to cross the banks of the river and then arrive at a clay wall (Collpa), where hundreds of parrots and macaws belonging to ten or more species arrive and alight in the nearby trees to then go down to the Collpa They arrive in discrete pairs or in large groups depending on the species.
