The Manu Cloud Forest Expedition offers the world's best Andean Cock-of-the-Rock experience in a pristine cloud forest reserve located in the Manu National Park. This excursion includes lodging at the Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge located in the pristine Manu cloud forest on the verdant eastern slopes of the Andes.
The lodge is named after the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, Peru's large, bright-red national bird that puts on a colorful and noisy mating display every morning. Spectacled bears, monkeys, quetzals and a host of other colorful birds inhabit the surrounding forest and a bubbling mountain stream tumbles past the lodge.
Situated at an elevation of 5000 feet (1600 meters) in the cool, mosquito-free Kosñipata Valley close to the wild Cusco–Shintuya road, the lodge protects and supports a 12,500-acre cloud forest reserve. It consists of 12 double-occupancy bungalows with private bath facilities and a separate complex with a large dining room. A local highland family staffs the lodge, and they also work as rangers, patrolling the private reserve.
