Meandering rivers, cloud forest, and lowland jungle make up the diverse biological wonder of Manú National Park, which spans about 4.2 million acres across southeastern Peru. Every corner teems with wildlife, including jaguars, giant otters, and macaws—one of the roughly 1,000 bird species. Naturally, eco-tourists and adventurers flock here, too. The park is also indigenous territory: 30 farmer communities based here speak Quechua as their first language, and there are various native Amazonians living in voluntary isolation.
