Manù National Park is the largest nature reserve in Peru and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area houses many exotic species of animals and plants, and large parts of it are accessible for visitors.
But the park is, in fact, split into three. One area has been closed off to visitors and only lets in scientists and others with special permission to study the fauna of the area. A second part is also restricted, but with a bit of careful planning, it is easy to get on one of the tours operated through the Manù National Park, though again, they require special permits. The third part is open to all and is also where you’ll find the only inhabitants in the area, the Matsigenga Amazonian tribes. The Manù Learning Center is your one-stop-shop to learn about the park.
And while here, don’t miss the Petroglyphs of Pusharo, that have puzzled scientists for centuries. Current theories revolve around them being carved by Indian tribes in the area in ancient times, or by the Incas as a map of the region.
