Amazon Manu 4 Days Tour, or Manu National Park, located in southeastern Peru, is one of the largest parks in South America. The area of the park encompasses parts of the Andean department of Cusco and the jungle department of Madre de Dios.
Manu in Amazon National Park protects over 2 million hectares (4.5 million acres) of territory rich in flora and fauna species in a variety of habitats including the high Andes, cloud forests, and lowland tropical rain forests. The Biosphere Reserve includes an additional 2,570 km², and a further 914 km² are included in a “Cultural Zone” (which also is afforded a level of protection), bringing the total area up to 18,811 km².
With more than 20,000 species, 40% of the park is Amazonian lowland tropical rainforest, including varzea, oxbow lakes, Iriartea palm swamps, and upland forest types.
The Manu Biosphere Reserve Has a Very Rich Wildlife
Larger species of the lowland forests include the jaguar, puma, ocelot, giant otter, giant anteater, southern tamandua, giant armadillo, nine-banded armadillo, brown-throated sloth, Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth, Brazilian tapir, capybara, pacarana, lowland paca, collared peccary, white-lipped peccary, and several deer species, like South American red brocket, and South American brown brocket. The marsh deer, actually rather a savanna animal, has also been confirmed.

OTHER PERU TTOURS
How Many Days Do You Need in Order to Hike In Peru
The Classic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most popular combined routes. Each route varies in length from one to fourteen days, depending on the demand and availability of lodging along the way. All four journeys are one-way trips. You will generally travel back to Cusco using a combination of public and private transportation, depending on which tour company you use to make your trip reservations.
The One-Day Inca Trail Hike (1-day trek)
You can see Machu Picchu in one day if you’re short on time (but be prepared to wake up early!). You’ll take the train from Cusco to Kilometer 104, which is a location on the trail. Then, you’ll hike around 15 kilometers (9 miles) through the Sun Gate until you reach the Machu Picchu sanctuary. This option is great if you want to view Machu Picchu and experience a small section of the Inca Trail trek all at once.
The Lares Trek (3-day trek)
The Lares Trek, also known as the cultural alternative to the Inca Trail, is a three-day journey into the historical weaver communities on the eastern slopes of Machu Picchu. But don’t expect it to be a trip to the museum.
To glimpse into time-honored villages, you must earn access by obtaining passes that soar to over 15,000 feet and zigzag across Pumahuanca’s peak. On day four of your Lares trek, you may add another stop at Machu Picchu ruins.
Vilcabamba Traverse Route (1 – 2 week trek)
The trek to Machu Picchu is not for the faint of heart. At 65 kilometers long, this is regarded as one of the most difficult ways to see Machu Picchu. The route starts in Cachora and winds a mile-deep canyon to Choquequirao, or “Cradle of Gold.” The Vilcabamba Trail follows the same route that Hiram Bingham took when he rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911, albeit via more isolated towns.
The Salkantay Route (1 – 2 week trek)
The Salkantay Trek is the only Inca Trail option that lets you sleep in a comfy bed and take a hot shower at the end of every day’s hike! Though it still requires reasonably fit participants, The Lodge Trek runs along the Salkantay Trail through the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range but permits nightly rest at fully serviced lodges placed along the route. Machu Picchu is reached by following the trail to an elevation of 15,000 feet.
The Classic Inca Trail Route (3 – 5 day trek)
The Classic Inca Trail Hike is the most popular trek of the four alternatives described in this piece. It begins at kilometer 82 along the route, at the village of Piscacucho. The first day is a moderate hike through the Andean foothills, crossing the Urubamba River and arriving at your campsite in Huayllabamba. On the second day, you’ll ascend what’s known as “Dead Woman’s Pass,” which is the highest point of the Inca Trail Elevation at 4200 meters (13,776 feet). After that, it’s all downhill to the Pacaymayo River campsite.
PERU TOUR WHAT TO EXPECT?
Touring in Peru is perfect for those who want a light/moderate/challenging adventure and like to explore new things. Travelers should be in good shape since you’ll be walking for long periods of time, walking on unstable ground, and going upstairs without any handrails. Make the most of your Inca Trail Trips in Peru.
It is suggested to have hiking preparation at least 2 months in advance with activities that help strengthen the muscles of the legs with a good technique to hold your breath as this tour generally cover heights over 14,000 feet above the mountains in very rough terrain and very low temperatures as well as very high temperatures.
During the Sacred Valley Tour, you will explore various areas including Chinchero, This is a trip preparation for the extended Hiking Tour to Machu Pichu. (acclimatization)
Cusco is located at a high altitude of 11,200 feet. The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu are lower, at 9,200 and 8,000 feet respectively.

INCA TRAIL HIKING TOUR FAQs
Best time to visit Cusco Peru
If you are in a rush and don’t have time to read on, we think the best time to visit the beautiful Cusco is late April or May once the dry season has started – the mountains are still lush and green, but the days are sunny and not too cold – April and May are some of my favorite times of the year in Cusco.
What is special about Cusco, Peru?
Being the capital city of the Incas, Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located at 3400m /11155 feet When walking its streets, will be impossible not to appreciate the hand-made stone walls that decorate the city.
What is the weather like in Cusco Peru?
The climate in Cusco Peru is determined by the dry season and the wet season. As the name implies, the dry season in the Andes experiences the lowest average rainfall during the year. This is what makes it peak tourism season. Less rain makes it easier to travel in the mountains, both by vehicle and on foot.
When does the rainy season in Cusco begin?
Regularly, the rainy season in Cusco Peru starts in October and goes until March. January and February are when heavy rains hit the most, interrupting the transportation system. When heavy rains occur, it makes quite difficult to access some sites in the Sacred Valley because of damage to the roads. This is why going with a reputable local travel operator like Apus Peru can make your rainy-season travel easier and safer.
Depending on the date, international and local holidays as well as festivals may result in a surcharge. All prices are subject to change and will be quoted in U.S. dollars. For more information, please consult the terms and conditions for this trip.”
This Hiking Tour is available year-round. Please note the Inca Trail is closed in February.
