From the Andes to the Amazon 8 days

For the Incas, Cusco was the bellybutton of the world. A visit to this city and its nearby ruins takes you back to the cosmic kingdom of ancient Andean culture, merged with the colonial imprint of the Spanish conquest, only to be repackaged as a thriving tourist center. The capital of Cusco is known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, one of the 7 wonders of the world. An impressive landscape extends from Andean peaks to cloud forests rich in orchids and Amazonian lowlands. Explore it on foot or with thick tires, rafting in wild rivers or simply challenging local buses to remote corners and worn away by the dust of this powerful cultural department.
The National Park of Manu is a world Heritage site and one of the areas with the most biodiversity in the world. one of the biggest attractions of the Park are the collpas, habitat of flocks of macaws, as well as other wildlife species.
