The Manu Eco Lodge TAMBO PAITITI is located around 100 km from Cusco, at the eastern slopes of the Andes. Situated at 1,500 m altitude within the Manu National Park, this lodge in the middle of the cloud forest offers best conditions for the observation of wildlife, specially for bird watching, for the study of plants and of course for relaxing.
TAMBO PAITITI is waiting for you with eight charming double bedded rooms and roofed terraces, a dining area with terrace, an observation tower and the toilets and lavatories. All platforms are thatched with palm leaves and connected by wooden bridges.
Inspired by the traditional architectural style of the Manu rainforest and purely built of natural materials, TAMBO PAITITI melts perfectly with its surroundings, the Manu Cloud Forest.
TAMBO PAITITI's excellent location on a plateau above the San Pedro River is unique in the Manu Cloud Forest: Already from your room or the terrace of the lodge you may observe different species of birds or monkeys. You will find a lot of viewpoints inside or around the lodge for undisturbed wildlife observation. In addition we are offering different hikes around the lodge which will lead you into the cloud forest in order to enjoy its rich flora and fauna.
TAMBO PAITITI offers an extensive library with reference books, specialized literature and illustrated books. We would like to invite you to do some reading in these books, discovering more about the secrets of the Cloud Forest and the National Park in addition to the information given by your guide.
We have prepared a didactic path near the lodge which provides a lot of information about flora and fauna. Feel free to follow it and make your individual excursion, looking for the answers of your questions.
We invite you to spend some days in this little paradise. Enjoy tranquility and remoteness and the full service of our crew at the same time. Explore nature on shorter and longer walks around the lodge, listen to our guides explaining flora and fauna of this unique ecosystem and witness its immense biodiversity in its natural habitat: the colourful Cock of the Rock, Quetzal, Trogon, Tanager, Oropendola and Motmot, as well as monkeys, insects and many other animals.
Or lean back in a deck-chair and observe the animals from the viewing terrace. Take a refreshing bath in Rio San Pedro, browse our extensive library about rainforests and their flora and fauna and let our cook indulge you with his creations.
Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
