The Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge (CORL) nestled in a pristine Andean Cloud Forest, beckons the enthusiastic birder and adventurous nature lover for an unforgettable visit to a true paradise of nature.

Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge is located in cool, mosquito-free cloud forest at 5000 feet (1600 m) of elevation along the amazingly wild single lane road from Cusco to the Manu lowlands.

From Cusco, it takes 6 hours or so by private vehicle over two Andean Mountain chains of 13,100 feet elevation through a habitat of wildlife such as the rare Huemal Deer, vizcachas, and Mountain Caracara to reach this biological Eden. Most travelers prefer to spend 8-10 hours along the route to savor the eye-popping scenery, excellent birdwatching, and colorful orchids, fuchsias, heliconias, and other exotic flowers. CORL lies past patches of elfin forest on the eastern slopes of the Andes in the mist of the Cloud Forest. Troops of muscular-limbed Woolly Monkeys and comical Brown Capuchin Monkeys forage through the reserve. Rare sightings of the endangered Spectacled Bear, South America's only species of bear, have been recorded near Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge.
