Manu National Park, Peru
Comprising imposing mountainous ranges and vast Amazon Basin plains, Manu has got it all. It’s a huge place — covering almost two million wild acres — and so entering the dense jungle here should not be taken lightly. For those keen to step far off the beaten track, however, it doesn’t get much wilder than this.
Located in Peru’s remotest regions, this is an awe-inspiring place, with its unique blend of lowland rainforests, cloud forests and great Andean grasslands. It’s a land renowned for its diverse ecosystems, a place where 250 different tree species can be discovered in a single hectare, and a lush location that has long enjoyed UNESCO recognition and protection.
Trek twisting trails, climb rugged cliffs or set sail along winding waterways, the choice is yours. For those keen to experience the world at its wildest, Manu ticks all the boxes.
