Cock of the Rock Lodge
Manu Cloud Forest

Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge is located in the pristine Manu cloud forest on the verdant eastern slopes of the Andes. Opened in 1997, it is named after the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock (Rupicola)Cock of the Rock the conspicuously brilliant red-and-black national bird of Peru. Each morning and evening the males stage a colorful, noisy mating display at a “lek”, or display site, right by the lodge. Spectacled Bears, Woolly Monkeys, Brown Capuchin Monkeys, quetzals and a host of other colorful birds also inhabit the surrounding forest, and a bubbling mountain stream tumbles through the valley below. A one-hour trail circuit near the lodge offers an unusual bamboo forest, and many opportunities for wildlife and exotic plant sightings, while a more extensive trail network is available to those staying longer.

Situated at the temperate elevation of 1,600m/5,200 ft in the pleasant, mosquito-free Kosñipata Valley, the lodge protects and supports a 5,060ha./12,500-acre private cloud forest reserve. Though peaceful and secluded it stands very close to the scenic Cusco–Shintuya highway. It consists of 12 double-occupancy wooden bungalows with private bath facilities, screened windows and mosquito nets and also a private balcony. The meals are served on the fully screened dining platform. The lodge cook prepares hearty dishes using fresh fruits, vegetables, grains and meat. Vegetarian and other special diets can be provided upon request.

A local highland family staffs the lodge, and they also work as rangers, patrolling the private reserve. This location provides the world’s best Andean Cock-of-the-Rock viewing in a pristine cloud forest reserve. The Cock-of-the-Rock Lodge is located in the magical Manu cloud forest on the lush eastern slopes of the Andes, and is part of the Tropical Nature conservation system.
