Our Philosophy is to make a difference to you and to the places you visit.
This was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken thanks to Puma Expeditions!! My husband and I traveled with a group of 9 total on our trip to Cusco, our main guide Jorge was excellent leader for the group! It was a trip filled with education and exploration. Our guide for our 2 days Machu Picchu adventure was Miguel. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Inca history.
Thanks to everyone at Puma Expeditions for the trip of a lifetime!!
DAY 1 Cusco -
Leaving early from the Imperial City of Cusco heading South over the Andes in our private transport we will visit the pre Inca tombs of Ninamarca (3800m/12,000ft) and then the colonial town of Paucartambo where we will stop for breakfast. After a brief stroll around town we will continue our journey until we reach the official entrance of Manu National Park where we will then descend through different layers of Geography, Arriving to the cloud forest we take a walk to give you the option to see butterfly and birds (Cock of the Rock is quite common on this route and is the national bird of Peru) plants of all types, orchids with luck we should be able to see various species of monkeys that frequent the road side, Continue our journey we will head to Salvacion Town where where will be staying for the night.
DAY 2 Salvacion Cocha Machuwasi -
We will also walk around the town looking for birds and it’s a good time to see toucans and tanagers. Later we are going to visit Cocha Machuwasi an Ox Bow lake that is teaming with wildlife that you can see from up close whilst being chauffeured across the lake on manmade wooden rafts. This is ideal for taking photos of typical yet stunning jungle views. From here we will head up river into the Konac Canyon having a view of Madre de Dios River going through the canyon, having fun jumping from the rocks or just swimming in the river. Returning we will stop by the Rescue house to take a look how the local organization save birds and mammal to bring back to their natural habit.
