TAMBOPATA CHUNCHO 3D/2N
Our service begins when you pick it up from the airport, hotel or bus terminal, at the previously coordinated time, and then be transferred to our office where we will have about 20 or 30 minutes for the respective re-packing of the luggage if necessary, since for reasons of transport and access to the hostel CHUNCHO LODGE, it is advisable to take only what is necessary (10 to 15 kg) for the days and / or nights that your stay in the hostel lasts, which can be put inside a small backpack. After the repackaging, we will board on the 4×4 truck to go by the interoceanic highway in the direction of Cusco, reaching the Florida Baja community in 47 km, where we will have the opportunity to have lunch. At this point we will leave the road to enter a dirt road through the jungle reaching the Tambopata River in 18 km of route, where we expect a motor boat navigating over the waters of this river for 05 minutes will take us to our lodge lines mentioned above.
After having settled and rested, we will meet for a two-hour walk through the jungle in search of some of the most representative trees and plants of our Amazon as well as shihuahuaco, lupuna, ficus, among others. We finish this activity once back to the hostel. 6:15 pm again we get together for a next activity, make a night walk in the middle of the forest, with the idea of looking for creatures that tend to move during the night, creatures like: Frogs, toads, tarantulas, spiders, crickets, moths, among others. The walk will last 40 minutes to an hour. Then we returned to have dinner at the hostel.
Very early in the morning (4:30 am) we will meet to board the motor boat and navigate 1 hour upstream until we reach one of the largest and most spectacular macaw clay lick in the world because of the large number of parrots and macaws that can be seen inside the Tambopata National Reserve, being participants of this wonderful bird show, the same ones that calls any one attention for the noise they emit, the striking colors and the fluttering they make to eat the clay from the walls of mud located on the banks of the river formed by erosion. These clays contain a large amount of nutrients and mineral components that daily form part of the diet of these parrots and macaws. While we are witnessing this wonderful show we will settle for breakfast. Also this activity could usually be extended throughout the morning according to the climate and behavior of these birds, other birds that we can also observe in the surroundings of the colpa are toucans, pigeons, hawks, even monkeys, there are also reports of sightings of jaguars and pumas stalking the macaws.
Then it’s time to return to our lodge, navigating down the river, and on our tour we also have the possibility to find some small groups of capybaras on the banks of the river, the white caimans, taricaya turtles, or we can even find the most powerful cat of South America resting on the shores or sandy beaches, the Jaguar. Lunch at Chuncho Lodge. After lunch and a well-deserved siesta, we gather for another activity, hike through the forest and visit the 38 meter tall canopy tower, to watch birds like toucans, macaws flying over the forest, and the most interesting thing to see from the heights as the beautiful sunset.
After breakfast we will board our boat again to go back to the other side of the river where the 4×4 truck waits for us to take us back to our office in Puerto Maldonado to pick up their luggage. Later we will transfer you to the airport, hotel or bus terminal, where our services end.
