The Peruvian Amazon (Amazonía del Perú) is the area of the Amazon rainforest included within the country of Peru, from east of the Andes to the borders with Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil and Bolivia. This region comprises 60% of the country and is marked by a large degree of biodiversity. Peru has the second-largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after the Brazilian Amazon. Most Peruvian territory is covered by dense potataorsa forests on the east side of the Andes, yet only 5% of Peruvians live in this area. More than 60% of Peruvian territory is covered by the Amazon rainforest, more than in any other country. The Peruvian Amazon is traditionally divided into two distinct ecoregions: The lowland jungle (Selva Baja) is also known as Omagua region, Walla, Anti, Amazonian rainforest or Amazon basin. This ecoregion is the largest of Peru, standing between 80 and 1,000 meters above sea level. It has very warm weather with an average temperature of 28 °C, high relative humidity (over 75%) and yearly rainfall of approximately 260 cm (100 in). Its soils are very heterogeneous, but almost all have river origins. Because of high temperatures and high rainfall, they are poor soils with few nutrients. The jungle contains long and powerful rivers such as the Río Amazon, Río Apurimac, Río Mantaro, Río Urubamba, Río Ucayali, Río Huallaga, Río Marañón, Río Putumayo, Río Yavarí, Río Napo, Río Pastaza, Río Madre de Dios, Río Manu, Río Purus, and Río Tigre. The Río Apurimac is the source of the Amazon River. The Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve and the Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Regional Conservation Area are within the forest. The highland jungle (Selva Alta) is also called Rupa region, Andean jungle, ceja de selva. This ecoregion extends into the eastern foothills of the Andes, between 1,000 and 3,800 m above the sea level. The eastern slopes of the Andes are home to a great variety of fauna and flora because of the different altitudes and climates within the region. Temperatures are warm in the lowlands and cooler in higher altitudes. There are many endemic fauna because of the isolation caused by the rugged terrain of the area. The Peruvian Amazon jungle is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth. As a nation, Peru has the largest number of bird species in the world and the third-largest number of mammals; 44% of bird species and 63% of mammal species inhabit the Peruvian Amazon. Peru also has a very high number of species of butterflies, orchids, and other organisms. Río Marañon y Nauta Caño We had the chance to hike in a primary forest at the Amazon Natural Park along the Río Marañon in the morning, and then we navigated to the Nauta Caño in the afternoon. Among the giant emergent trees of the Amazon, we observed all different species of flora and fauna that inhabit this area. From beautiful heliconias blooming, to toads and amazing caterpillars, this place was literally full of natural treasures waiting to be discovered. After lunch a torrential tropical rain fell; when the clouds went away we explored Nauta Caño by skiff. Nauta Caño is one of those areas full of highlights and surprises, such as the Monk Saki, lots of birds including the beautiful capped heron and, of course, the always beautiful landscapes of the Upper Amazon.
