Tune in to our live chat, via Facebook, with Inkaterra’s Carmen Soto on July 23. The specialist will introduce us to the fascinating flora and fauna that can be found in the cloud forest of Machu Picchu.
Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, located in the cloud forest that surrounds the ancient citadel, houses conservation and research programs dedicated to the rich biodiversity found in this area of Cusco. Spearheading the initiatives is Carmen Soto, resident biologist and orchid specialist.
Join this live presentation by Soto to discover the vast number of native species, including birds, butterflies and bears, that populate the area’s tropical forest. We will also get a crash course on the 372 native orchid species that can be found in the hotel’s garden. Do not miss out.
