This is a shortest version of the Manu Biosphere Reserve Trip that lacks the Lower Manu region in the Amazon. The trip also starts in Cusco, and along the way to the Lodges we cross a variety of habitats of the Andean region that give us a lot of possibilities regarding birds of the Manu area in the Cloud Forest. After our Journey we drive back to Cusco.
