nature - trip peru

This place has a great variety of wildlife and flora but it also shelters a significant display of cultural diversity, represented by different towns that have important culture and folklore, each with their own dialect, hunting, fishing and collection techniques, religious rituals and medicine. These towns have different levels of contact with the mainstream culture in Peru, although many times we will see them wearing occidental clothing, it is not hard to perceive that their vision of the world and their language are unique. On the Manu National Park territory, you can find 30 native communities that still speak Quechua as their native tongue and several amazonian native populations that live on these territories from ancient times, such as the Matsiguenga, Amahuaca, Yine, Amarakaeri, Huashipaire and Nahua; among others that have no contact with the modern world.
