Where we are?

Existen 03 posibles vías para llegar a SOQTAPATA, dependiendo de dónde partes.

From Lima

From Lima you should take a domestic flight to Cusco or Puerto Maldonado, depending on your preference or travel plans. Air flights are not included in the program rates. If you don't have planned tourism activities in Puerto Maldonado, we suggest you fly to Cusco. For those that suffer from altitude sickness or health issues triggered by altitude, we suggest you fly to Puerto Maldonado.


From Cusco (included)

The largest number of trips to reach the SOQTAPATA Nature Reserve departs from Cusco City at our meeting points located at the Plaza de Armas and/or the Velasco Astete Airport (this can be coordinated). We begin our journey at dawn (5:00am) in comfortable and fully equiped private vans, in which we will cross the South Valley and high Andean communities reaching 4,700 m.s., from where we will begin our descense to the jungle (900 m.n.m.) During the road trip there are a few stops to contemplate and take pictures of the colorful and unique landscapes; have breakfast and stretch. At our arrival to the main entrance of the reserve (Km 174 South Interoceanic Highway), the trip continues on foot (approx. 45 minutes) through the forest, crossing two rivers until we reach base camp.


From Puerto Maldonado

Si en caso partes desde Puerto Maldonado, nos lo deberás comunicar al realizar tu reserva. Nuestro equipo te asignará un transporte privado que podría ser una Van o un auto privado dependiendo del tamaño del grupo. Esta opción podría generar un costo adicional, del cual te informaremos al momento de recibir tu reserva. Este viaje de 04 horas atraviesa parte de la llanura amazónica de Madre de Dios, en el cual además de observar bosques milenarios, apreciarás el camino de descenso de uno de los aportantes al río Madre de Dios.
