DAY 1.- CUSCO – BAMBU LODGE.   On the first day of our adventure into the Jungle of Manu, we will pick you up around 5:45 AM from your Hotels in Cusco, using the service of our private SAS transport. The first part of our excursion is will take us through the majestic Andean mountains, where we will take a quick opportunity to visit a really nice pleasant lake by the name of Huacarpay, a high Andean Lagoon that boasts heaps of flora and fauna typical of the Andean mountains.  Afterwards, we will visit the town of Huancarani which contains the funeral towers of Ninamarca, a cemetery of the Lupaca Pre –Inca Culture, which we will visit briefly on our way to Paucartambo, which is known as the folkloric capital of the district of Cusco.  In the face of modern times, this small colonial pueblo has managed to hold on to its rich tradition for centuries upon centuries.   At mid-day we will arrive at the entrance of Manu National Park and access to one of the most protected natural areas in South America.  We will continue on in our private transport down a dirt road and on through the thick fog from which this section of the forest takes it name.  Eventually we will arrive at the home of the exotic Peruvian National Bird, the “Cock of the Rocks”, where it is known to gather with others of its kind for some sort of social gathering that seems reminiscent of a large courtship.  You will find that this is quite an amazing spectacle complete with an impressive array of sounds and colours that can only be found in the jungle.  For our first night, we will stay in the beautiful BAMBU Lodge, where we will arrive at approx. 5:00 p.m.
