Short Manu Tour

Hi guys,

I am looking for a 3day or 4day trip to Manu national park. I would like to see as much as possible (I have no time to stay for longer) and don't mind paying that bit extra.

To add to my problem, my itinerary means I need to leave for Manu on a Wednesday or Thursday in January - so it limits fixed departure trips.

So I am looking for a list of tour operators to Manu that offer 3 or 4 day trips to Manu

on a Wednesday or Thursday. What safe tour operators are there for me?

I like the sound of this : www.manuvilcaperu.com/index.php…

Flying to Manu during the wet season is not possible there are no flights! For a short 3 or 4 days option you are really only going to be able to travel to the edge of Manu Park, and use some of the lodges located on the eastern slopes of the Andes (which are actually quite good). It will take you a day overland to get there, and a day to get back. If you can afford 2 more days, it would be more worthwhile. Alternatively, you may find that Refugio Lodge in Tambopata a better option. This lodge is located a little further into the Jungle, and works well with 4 days.

Here is an article on Tambopata v Manu theonlyperuguide.com/2012/…

And here is a list of the most popular lodges in Manu that you might want to check out. totallylatinamerica.com/peru-vacations-artic…

Also, try contacting Manu Expeditions, who may be able to point you in the right direction. http://www.manuexpeditions.com/

Good luck!
