The present study aims to explore the conceptions of health in a group of shamans from the Peruvian jungle. The participants were two women and eight men from the cities of Pucallpa, Tarapoto and Iquitos. We worked from the qualitative methodology and we conducted interviews in order to collect and analyze the information. We found that their conception of health includes the following dimensions: spiritual, emotional, corporal, mental and relationships. The spirituality stands out as a transversal element that goes within the understanding and the practical experience of the shamans in the health field. In addition, the body enhances as the main object of intervention. This multidimensional point of view expresses the integral conception that the shamans have about health, and that includes all dimensions of the human being.
Keywords: health, shamans, spirituality.
The observation of indigenous societies in the Amazonia give us a firm basis to make precisions about the anthropology of tourism, understood as a guided, organized and anchored glance at exotic representation and cultural consumption.

Tambopata Macaw Lick Peru: Tambopata National Reserve (RNTAMB) was created 5 September 2000 by Supreme Decree No. 048-2000- AG; It is located south of the Madre de Dios River in Tambopata and Inambari districts of the province of Tambopata in Madre de Dios region and has an area of 278,284 hectares.
It is one of the places of greatest diversity of wildlife in the world in the jungle, offers healthy habitats for species that are endangered. There have been 169 species of mammals, 103 amphibians, 205 fish and a record 1,200 species of butterflies. Also, there have been 632 species of birds. In RNTAMB will be appreciated diversity of fauna and among the most representative are: species of macaws (macaw lick) including endemic blue green head (Ara couloni), harpy eagle (Harpia harpija); variety of primates as the emperor tamarin (Saguinus imperator), the howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus); cats like the jaguar (Panthera onca), other mammals such as tapir (Tapirus terrestris), peccary (Tayassu peccary). Is also the singular Rio Lobo (pteronura brasiliensis), the largest of all species of otters. Also we have identified 17 vegetation associations by type of forest with a record of 1255 species of plants in the forest.
Sandoval Lake is one of the main attractions of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is also attractive receiving major tourist because of its scenic beauty and its proximity to the city of Puerto Maldonado (45 min by boat on the Madre de Dios). It is accessed by a path of about 02 km to a pier where visitors addressed rowing boats to enter by a small river into the lake. During the visit you can see different species of wildlife such as monkeys, macaw lick, parrots, alligators, otters, different species of birds and the impressive diversity of flora that this has this protected natural area.

Peru’s treasured Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) is the world’s top biodiversity hotspot for reptiles and amphibians, according to a new survey published last month by biologists from the University of California, Berkeley, Southern Illinois University in Carbondale (SIU-Carbondale) and Illinois Wesleyan University. The Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , which encompasses lowland Amazonian rain forest Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , high-altitude cloud forest and Andean grassland east of Cuzco Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , is well known for its huge variety of bird life, which attracts ecotourists from around the globe. More than 1,000 species of birds, about 10 percent of the world’s bird species; more than 1,200 species of butterflies; and now 287 reptiles and amphibians have been recorded in the Manu National park (Manu Reserve zone ) . Postdoc Rudolf von May discusses the reptile and amphibian biodiversity in Peru’s Manu National Park. Video by Phil Ebiner and Roxanne Makasdjian. Photos and video footage by Alessandro Catenazzi, SIU-Carbondale, and Rudolf von May, UC Berkeley. For reptiles and amphibians, Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) and its buffer zone (Manu Reserve zone ) now stands out as the most diverse protected area anywhere,” said study coauthor Rudolf von May, a postdoctoral researcher in Berkeley’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology. Despite the Manu National (Manu Reserve zone ) park’s abundant and diverse animal life in this Amazon Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , von May said, not all is well in the preserve. The devastating chytrid fungus has caused a decline in the number of frogs there, as it has elsewhere around the world, while deforestation for subsistence living, gold mining and oil and gas drilling are encroaching on the buffer zones around the Manu National park (Manu Reserve zone ) . Ccocha Cashu All of this is threatening the biodiversity in the Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) and the native peoples who live in settlements in the park,” von May said. At least four Amazonian Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) tribes and a nomadic group of hunter-gatherers known as Mashco-Piro live within the confines of Manu National Park(Manu Reserve zone ) and its buffer zone.Von May, a native of Manu National Park Peru (Manu Reserve zone ) , and coauthor Alessandro Catenazzi, an assistant professor of zoology at Carbondale, have spent more than 15 years each scouring the Manu National Park park and its surrounding areas for frogs, toads, salamanders and caecilians – all amphibians – as well as for reptiles such as snakes, lizards, turtles and caimans. The field work in the park and its buffer zone Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , augmented by other, more limited surveys published previously, allowed the team to compile a list of 155 amphibian and 132 reptile species, including a handful of species new to science. Taxonomist and coauthor Edgar Lehr, assistant professor of biology at Illinois Wesleyan University, collaborates frequently with von May and Catenazzi on frog taxonomy and studies of amphibian declines and conservation in Manu National Park .
The researchers listed the 287 species of reptiles and amphibians in the most recent issue of the journal Biota Neotropica Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) . The previous record for the most diverse protected area for reptiles and amphibians was in Yasuní National Park in Ecuador, which hosts 150 amphibian and 121 reptile species, according to a 2010 study. There is no place like Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) where we can preserve such an exceptionally large amount of biodiversity in this Reserve Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , as well as the evolutionary processes that contribute to maintain and promote biodiversity” Manu National Park , said Catenazzi, a former postdoctoral researcher in UC Berkeley’s Department of Integrative Biology. “It is our responsibility to make sure this biological legacy is passed on to the next generations. To assemble the list, the team surveyed multiple elevations and examined hundreds of museum specimens collected at dozens of locations in Manu National Park and its buffer zone Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) . Analysis of DNA sequences and frog calls allowed the team to identify additional species.
Site While the high species diversity can be partially attributed to the large area and steep topographic variation within Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , the finding is noteworthy, von May said. Von May talks about the goals of the survey and the interesting reptiles and amphibians in Manu National Park they found in Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) . He and his colleagues estimate that the park represents only 0.01 percent of the planet’s land area, but houses 2.2 percent of all amphibians and 1.5 percent of all reptiles known worldwide. Since its creation 41 years ago, Manu National (Manu Reserve zone ) Park has become recognized as globally irreplaceable: it was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Manu National Park Preserve (Manu Reserve zone ) in 1977 and a World Heritage Site in 1987. Herpetologists – experts in reptiles and amphibians – first surveyed the region in the 1970 , primarily along the road that connects the city of Cuzco to villages in the cloud forests of the Kosñipata Valley in Manu National Park . Starting in the 80, research was broadened to include remote lowland rainforest locations, such as Cocha Cashu Biological Station to Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) , inside the park. Subsequent expeditions have continued to reveal new species of amphibians and reptiles, especially in the cloud forest Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) and high-Andean grasslands, which are rich in endemic species, Catenazzi said. One of the most recent discoveries was the glass frog Centrolene sabini, the world’s 7,000 the known amphibian species. The research team predicts that additional species will be described in the upcoming years as a result of increased use of DNA analysis, study of frog calls and other techniques. The work was supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Geographic Society, the Amazon Conservation Association, the Rufford Small Grants Foundation and the Wildlife Conservation Society to Manu National Park (Manu Reserve zone ) .

THREE AREAS OF MANU RESERVE ZONE
The reserve is divided into three zones. By far the largest, Zone A is the core zone, the National Park, which is strictly preserved in its natural state. Zone B is a Buffer Zone, generally known as the Reserved Zone and set aside mainly for controlled research and tourism. Zone C is the Transitional or Cultural Zone, an area of human settlement for controlled traditional use. Accessible only by boat, any expedition to Manu is very much in the hands of the gods, because of the temperamental jungle environment; the region experiences a rainy season from December to March, and is best visited between May and August when it’s much drier, although at that time the temperatures often exceed 30°C (86°F).

ACCESS ROUTES OF MANU NATIONAL PARK
Due to the nature of the trip Cusco – Manu national park there are three pathways of complement each other, which are:
VIA LAND OF MANU NATIONAL PARK : The road is used Cusco – Shintuya, in which the second named is in the province of Manu; in whose path the vehicle train is regulated, considering day in and day out admission days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. While (exit are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday This provision of the Ministry of transportation and communications, is due to the narrowness of the road, bridge Huambutío in Cusco until Shintuya. Besides this pathway Paucartambo has steep slopes, why circulating Paucartambo into the jungle only trucks and vans suspension wheel drive, especially to spend Sludge and Coal ford rivers. On the way after passing the bridge Huambutío, after an hour is reached Huancarani district is 3,700 meters above sea level. In which place is held the Sunday fair purchase and see agricultural products of the highlands area, such as potatoes, ollucos, barley, lamb. Then after two hours of journey up Paucartambo, which is 2,906 meters above sea level. View gallery of the Manu National Park.
RIVER MAPACHO IN THE MANU NATIONAL PARK: River Mapacho going through the hill that city Paucartambo is characterized by well-painted houses, some white and others blue with blue balconies narrow streets well paved with river stones is also famous party of the Virgin del Carmen celebrated with much pomp on 16 July, with the large variety of groups of dancers who sing beautiful songs. This town is located 77 kilometers from the city of Cusco. After passing the town of Paucartambo climb to the highest point called Acjanacu at the entrance of Manu National Park is 104 kilometers an hour to three quarters of the 3,500 m located and 3 degrees Celsius temperature where the first checkpoint is the Manu National Park. This place is open to whose right hand there are high mountains over 4,000 meters as Qañaqway, known to the locals in the Andean idiosyncrasy under the name of Apu Qañaqway or tutelary deity of the area, while the left side branches within the Manu National Park, 15 kilometers road heading East, which goes to sunrise observatory, called Tress Cruces or the East Balcony 3,800 m In whose area the rough straw and intense cold prevails there begins the entrance to the reserve Manu National Park.
ACAJANACU THE DOOR OF THE MANU NATIONAL PARK: The observation is between the months of May June to mid-July; This natural phenomenon is beautiful by the different shades of colors that contrast between the star rising sun and clouds, each output being very different in color and shape in his appearance, to be observed across the disk of the star. Continuing the road from Acjanaco penetration (Manu National Park) begins the descent to Qosñipata Quechua name that is explained by the low output and crisp mist from the inside of the jungle and slowly ascending the mountains to transport; the sharpness of the fog looks like smoke, which in Quechua qosñi leg height translates as, being the merger of these two terms in Quechua Qosñipata. This entire sector has very steep descent, which is why the development of very dangerous road has many sharp curves that are adorned with crosses testifying accidents that occurred in these places. As the road goes down to LA Manu National Park Reserve will reach the place called New Hope name since then up to Pillawata where there are two houses, the place where a restaurant where passengers take their food works. From this place the jungle begins and the presence of orchids (Sobralia dichotoma). Continuing the journey you reach the place called Buenos Aires; once this Union where the level of Ceja jungle ends) starts jungle Alta is in turn the level of the rainforest because in that place the meeting of two streams, habitat, adjacent to the Cock of the Rock of Manu National Park (Rupícola Peruvian)
CLOUD FOREST MANU NATIONAL PARK: The place called San Pedro is located in the Manu National Park Reserve tranche which has a very rocky descent in bounds, with crisp presence on both sides of the deep ravines on the right road forest. In this section the traveler will have the opportunity to observe the beauty of the Cock of the Rock, nuanced color between red and black male and female dark brown from the Paca here or Bamboo (Guadua weberbaueri) that is hanging over whose branches can have the thick thorns at each node.

Since the accident was eaten by laborers who named the creek as it removes Briefs. Then, after an hour’s drive you will reach the small village within Chonta Chaka Reserve (Manu National Park) which means bridge in Castilian Chonta (Bactris gasopi in whose place the descent of the road ends, and then continue plain passing the Assumption community as it is called a ranch inhabited place where great diversity of species in their natural habitat .Then above the lowest populated country in this part of the road has very deep sloughs and potholes that make impossible the movement of small cars; likewise in the towns of ChontaChaka and Patria on both sides of the cemetery road truck chassis Chevrolet and Ford 1940 to 1965, shows that come to be silent in the history of logging and transfer are observed des wood forest to the road in such vehicles of the Manu National Park.
AMAZON PERU MACAWS CLAY LICK
All Macaws have large, strong bills, bright plumage and long tapered tails, but their distinguishing field characteristic is the bare patch of facial skin around the eye and beak.. The three larger species of the Amazon Peru Macaw are much brighter in color than the other two Red and Green Macaws and Scarlet Macaws are both bright crimson, but Red and Greens have no yellow feathers on their wings (Scarlet do). Blue and Yellow Macaws, as their name suggests, are bright cobalt blue and gold in the Amazon Peru
All three have (harsh crow-like calls that echo around the forest, whether in flight, feeding in fruiting trees or at the colpas, they are never quiet .Amazon Peru Macaws nest in holes in trees or in the branches of large emergent trees. Blue and Yellows are the most selective-in choosing a nest site, generally only nesting inside old Puna Palms. This is a growing problem for these spectacular birds as the bird trade has cut down many of these nest sites in the search for chicks to export. There are research programmers, however in Tambopata that erect artificial nest sites, in likely trees to hopefully safeguard the future of these incredible birds in the Amazon Peru
The two smaller in the Amazon Peru Macaw species both have mainly green plumage with blue wings. The Chestnut Flouted Macaw is distingue from the Red Bellied Macaw by having white facial skin and a reddish color on the underside of its wings and tail. The Red bellied macaw has yellow facial skin and a yellowy color under the wings and tail the red bellied macaw and chest nut are usually seen flying in the large flocks (up to twenty individuals ) in the Amazon Peru
AMAZON PERU HISTORY: Throughout in the Amazon Peru history, extravagant wealth and sordid misery are dominant themes. Fortunes were found and lost; kingdoms were defeated; peoples were enslaved and freed. Deadly diseases, fearsome creatures, hostile Indians and rapacious settlers, all within the forest’s immensity, set the stage for a fascinating and often turbulent history. Added to this, the overwhelming power of legends attracted conquistadors from halfway across the world in search of the gilded man of El Dorado, while explorers throughout the centuries have searched in vain for the women tribes of the Amazon Peru and numerous lost cities:
ORIGINS OF THE AMAZON PERU: Today the Amazon yields few of its past secrets. Unfortunately the heat, together with the damp and acid soils of the rainforest, conspire to decompose organic remains quickly before they can fossilize. Human fossils are virtually absent from the lowland regions, so we have practically no certain clues as to how and when people arrived in the area. Likewise, without animal fossils it is difficult to reconstruct ancient faunas and so we are denied the human picture in its ecological context.
Aboriginal peoples of the Americas are believed to have arrived on the continent around 15 -20,000 years ago, between the two most recent ice ages. Migrating east and southwards, the hunter-gatherers made their way across the isthmus of Central America down to South America. This wave of migration gave rise to the Olmec, Maya and A2tec civilizations of Central America which flourished from 1400BC until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the early 1500s. In the eastern coastal regions and highlands of South America the Chimu and Inca, along with many other cultures, left ample architectural and cultural artefacts for us to ponder. In the last twenty years, chance discoveries and finds of stone tools and ceramics have suggested that large populations were established on the flood plains near the current city of Manaus by 3000BC. Some authorities believe humans have been in the Amazon much longer than formerly thought. David Childress, recounting The Chronicle of Akaka, describes advanced civilizations and lost cities in the Amazon dating back over 12,000 years ago.

Manu Jungle Trips Visitors to Manu Biosphere Reserve and readers of this book, are likely to wish to see and learn more about large, exotic mammals: the jaguar, giant otter, and the monkeys are the most sought-after of the large forms. Small mammals, the bats and rodents that venture our only at night, are much less likely to attract attention. They should not be ignored, however, as they make up the majority of the mammalian diversity in Manu, are a significant prey base for large predators, and are extremely important in maintaining plant diversity via their roles as seed dispersers and seed predators. We see ecotourism as a mean of preserving nature by providing sustainable development for the communities that live surrounding natural habitats like Manu National Park.

The Manu National Park is composed of 3 main areas: a core area ( Manu National Park) devoted to conservation, a buffer area including indigenous territories and private ecological reserves, a transition area with bio geographical boundaries and experimental, application and traditional use areas. The biological station of Cocha Cachu allows to carry out different researches on biological species. and ecosystems. An inventory of the biodiversity was undertaken in Manu National Park since 1987. The Manu National Park is situated in Southeastern Peru where it covers 1.9 Million hectares. Around 6500 Quechua and 2000 Amazonian peoples are living inside the Reserve. The Manu National Park is concerned by 3 major biogeographically provinces (the Puna, the Yungas and the Amazonian provinces).

AMAZON TRAIL – MANU PARK: The forests in order to provide a reservoir of underlying nutrients for their crops. In the Amazon, however, the nutrient proportions are reversed: as much as 90% are stored in the vegetation above ground and only 10% in the thin, often clayey soils below. Despite appearances to the contrary, the irony of the Amazon is that the world’s most luxuriant forest lies rooted in the midst of an enormous nutrient desert in amazon trail. All told, over 27,000 square miles (70,000 km2) of the Peruvian Amazon trail has been deforested to date, an area roughly four times the size of the Manu Biosphere Reserve; 743,100 additional acres (300,000 hectares) are deforested every year within the Amazon rainforest.

MANU PERUVIAN JUNGLE: A mysterious, almost prehistoric look to the landscape is provided by the often common presence of tree ferns. They are true ferns, but they grow to the size of small trees. Small ferns are also often abundant. Mosses, lichens and ferns are some of the oldest plants on earth and interestingly, they all depend upon mobile sperm for sexual reproduction. Thus, rain has to fall to enable the plants ‘sperm to travel over the wet surfaces of the plant, with the end goal of finding an egg and reproducing. Of course this process is inextricably linked to the watery origins of these plants in Manu Peruvian Jungle with the travel agency and tourism Manu Jungle Trips to see the Amazon jungle of Peru. With cool temperatures and abundant moisture, generally there is low evapotranspiration.
