A stunning, relaxing, adventurous two-day birding trip from Cusco to see some of the least known Peruvian Endemics and one of the most amazing Andean Condor spectacles in South America. An unforgettable journey to the Apurimac Canyon
Day 1:We pick you up from your Cusco hotel early and head west out of Cusco to Ancahuasi. From here we head across the high plains and Puna Grasslands to the picturesque village of Chonta where we start our 2-hour slow walk to the Condor overlook. We will be birding the whole way as we walk out to the Condors. (See video below). Andean birds we may see include Golden-billed Saltator, a variety of Sierra Finches, Hooded Siskin, Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle and Variable Hawk and much more.
Thanks again for an incredible experience on our Audubon Nature Odyssey trip to Manu and Machu Picchu! The guide team provided the best birding and nature experience that anyone could possibly hope for. The combination of their birding expertise, unparalleled in my view, and people skills provided our group with exceptional birdwatching in a very user-friendly manner where all our participants excelled. Everyone really enjoyed the total trip summarized by one of our participants who has birded around the world with many of the famous birding leaders who stated that you guys were the best birding guides she had ever experienced.
Dear Friends at Manu Expeditions,
Thank you for making a dream come true. My trip to the Mountains of Manu was truly extraordinary. The guide was the best birding guide I have met. In addition he was a very competent and caring person. He answered my many questions about birds, ecology, Peruvian history, and farming practices knowledgeably and cheerfully. I truly appreciate his extra efforts to insure I saw every bird possible.
