Manu National Park - Cultural Zone
The Manu Cultural Zone is one of the three zones in the Manu National Park that boasts high mountains, cloud forests and low jungles. In this area, there are small villages with native farmers. This zone is protected by the Farming Ministry and Manu park authorities to act as a buffer zone to the Reserved and intangible zones. We take you to the cloud forest of the eastern slopes of the Andes (Manu road) and to the upper lowland forest (around 500 - 600m altitude). Great for bird and monkey observation. (Gallito de las rocas, oropendolas, parrots, ) Also suitable for families with younger children.
