The Manu National Park, considered one of the largest and richest natural reserves in the world, which allows intimate contact with nature in its most primitive and wild state.
The Manu National Park was created in 1973 to conserve representative samples of biological diversity from the tropical forest of southeastern Peru. Contribute to regional development through research, as well as the recognition and protection of cultural diversity and self-determination of the indigenous peoples of the area, located on the western edge of the Amazon basin, in the departments of Cusco and Madre de Dios, encompassing the the entire Manu river basin and has an area of ??1 ‘716,295.22 hectares.
In 1977 UNESCO designated it, in addition to the territories destined for colonization that adjoined the Park and the Manu Reserved Zone, as a Biosphere Reserve. Ten years after its recognition as such, the Manu National Park was declared a Natural Heritage of Humanity for its extraordinary universal value. This designation was a recognition by UNESCO of its World Heritage Convention program, whose purpose is to catalog, preserve and publicize sites of exceptional cultural or natural importance for the common heritage of humanity.
