Fodor's Expert Review Cock of the Rock Lodge

163 km (101 miles) northeast of Cusco, Cusco, Cusco, Peru

This lodge stands at the edge of the cloud forest in the Manu Cultural Zone, and affords an amazing view of the lush Kosñipata River Valley. Owned by InkaNatura Travel, the property takes its name from Peru's red-and-black national bird, which can usually be seen nearby, along with dozens of other avian species found in the area, among them 35 types of hummingbird. The lodge's bungalows are the most comfortable in Manu, with balconies, good beds, and private, hot-water bathrooms. Because of the time and high cost of reaching this lodge, it is usually combined with the Manu Wildlife Center on a one-week trip.
