The Manu Biosphere Reserve is located in the southwestern part of Peru, encompassing territories of the regions of Madre de Dios and Cusco destined for recreational activities, anthropological and biological research, limited to observing wildlife in its natural form. It is considered as the end of ecotourism with the greatest biodiversity in the world. It is possible to observe a great landscape and natural richness by the great amount of flora and fauna visible from the rivers and the "cochas" (meanders of the river that are closed and are isolated from the main channel, forming lagoons that maintain a great wealth of fauna).
Your ecological wealth is important. The area contains more than 15,000 species of plants. In the Manu it is possible to find all the variety of ecological floors that exist in the Amazon and this has led to its biodiversity being one of the most appreciated. In a single hectare, up to 250 varieties of trees have been found.
Before becoming an area protected by the Peruvian Government, the Manu National Park was preserved thanks to its inaccessibility. In 1977 it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and, three years later, a World Heritage Site.
