DAY 01: We leave Cusco early in the morning in our specialized vehicle. Approximately mid- morning we visit the interesting tombs of Ninamarca, commonly known as “Chullpas”. We continue to Paucartambo, a picturesque Spanish colonial town, and then to the Acjanacu Pass at 3,850 m.a.s.l., which marks the beginning of the Cultural Zone of Manu Biosphere reserve. We continue our bus trip through the cloud forest, here a thick of clouds provides perpetual humidity and makes an ideal habitat for epiphytic plants such as bromeliads. This varied and fascinating world is home of the Cock of the Rock, Spectacled Bear, Orchids, Tree Ferns (one of the oldest living plants), mosses and lichens. This Cloud Forest exists between 2000 and 3500 meters above sea level, and al least 50 % of the plant species found here are endemic to this region. Overnight in our Orquideas de San Pedro Lodge.
