Although the five days tour to the Pyramids of Paratoari is not among the popular activities in Manu.
In 1976, NASA’s satellite photograph with number C-S11-32W071-03 showed a strange pyramid shaped formation amidst the lush tropical jungle in Southeast Peru near the banks of Madre de Dios river.
Don Montague, president of the South American explorers club believed that these were a natural geological phenomenon.
Later in 1996, Gregory Deyermenjian, a Peruvian explorer did an expedition to the Pyramids of Pantiacolla. He found plenty of evidence of Incas in that region. These included paved roads, petroglyphs and more.
He did an exhaustive research of the lost city and found out that these were not man made but were natural sandstone formations or the truncated ridge spurs.
The five days tour of Pyramids of Paratoari with our local English speaking native guide will show you the best of what the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest has to offer uncovering several mysteries.
