This tour is 90% downhill and 10% flat, so it is very difficult to have altitude sickness since not much physical effort is made, so that the body do not needs more oxygen than normal.

Is it necessary to have vaccines to be able to do the Mountain bike Tour Manu Park?

The bicycle tour is through the cultural area of Manu and you do not enter the reserve for that reason it is not necessary to have the different vaccines, but if you want but to go inside inside the reserve it is recommended to have the vaccines for yellow fever and take a minimum tour of 5 to 6 days

Do I need to have experience to do the mountain bike Tour Manu Park?

In this tour it is not necessary to have experience or be an expert on the bicycle, you only need to know how to handle the bicycle and have the desire to spend 3 days of adventure through the jungle combining bicycle ride, rafting and nature.

If I don’t want to go cycling or rafting, I won’t be able to take the Mountain bike Tour Manu National Park?

Do not worry if you can not do one of the two activities, the transport that we take will be with us the three days so you could continue in the Van in the sections that you think you can not ride the bicycle, and for the rafting the Van will go to the Atalaya port to pick us up finishing the Rafting and you can go in the Van.
