These “Friajes” are very common in the southeast of the hemisphere, the wind season (between April until the end of August)
Are there many walks?
There are not many walks in the sense of going far. All walks are done slowly. This is because most of you will find vegetation in the forest and be available to see the animals; giving enough time to see the surroundings and also hear it.
Do they provide water to drink during the tours? Is it purified water?
We request that hikers bring their own water the first day, since the containers with water will be accessible at dinner time. The rest of the trip, we will provide bottled and purified mineral water that we bring from Cusco.
Should I take prophylaxis against Malaria?
The risk of contracting malaria is low in the area we visit. However, the area is close to a gold mining area, the miners can travel in the same river that we travel, there is the possibility of mosquito bites that do not yet have malaria, can be infected by mincing the miner with malaria and then sting you and then infect Malaria. This possibility is very rare and until now there are no tourists that travel to Manu that has malaria.
