Amazon Wildlife – Manu: Visiting the Amazon Wildlife is to know the wonders of animals that exist as the giant otter, floating platforms, animal life, water, Agami Heron or Sun grebe, brown cappuchin monkeys usually eat fruit. Each animal consumes between 4 and 5 kilos of fish daily and often can be seen eating large fish on logs at the lakeside. We begin with transportation, then the canoe ride lasts a certain time in the jungle and the rest of the day hiking paths through the area in search of some of the 13 species of monkeys found in the forest reserve Amazon Wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips.

Amazon Wildlife – Manu National Park:

Covering an extraordinary geography. Amazon Wildlife in compasses a series of distinct biotic regions that range from over 13,700 feet (4,020 meters) in height down to lowland tropical rainforest only 1,200 feet (365 meters) above sea level. Between snow line and 11,500 feet (3,500 meters) lies the Puna, a tundra-like area characterized by pale yellow ichu grass, isolated blue lakes, tassel-eared llamas, and remnant forests of native Qenua. These native forests are some of the most ecologically threatened in Peru, and contain amazingly high levels of endemism. The photo above shows a view from Tress Cruces, near the trance of , in the background rises the Urubamba Mountain range or cordillera Urubamba the Reserve in Jungle Trips.

Amazon Wildlife – Manu National Park: Crossing over the eastern edge of the Andes, the traveler journeying towards the Manu River often encounters a thick blanket of clouds the beginning of the cloud forest. In this mysterious, ghostly-lit world, live brilliant-red Cock-of- the-Rocks, Spectacled Bears, and scores of dripping tree ferns, bromeliads, and orchids. Ranging in elevation from 11,500 to 3,000 feet (3,500 to 1,000 meters), the cloud forest is one of the least studied of environments; at least 50% of its plant species are found nowhere else on earth. Above, a view to the south- east from Tress Cruces. Finding in the Amazon Wildlife – Jungle Trips.

Amazon Wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips:

Amazon Wildlife: Experiences seasonal differences in rainfall due to its distance from the equator. Its dry season occurs from May to September, followed by the wet season which runs from October to April. Unlike temperate latitudes, tree flowering in Manu occurs at many different times of the year depending upon the species. Since individual trees of a single species are widely scattered throughout the forest (that is, species diversity is high while species density is low) many tree species flower simultaneously so that their pollinators monkeys, birds, bats or bees can transfer pollen from one tree to another. A common sight, therefore, is a sea of green rainforest canopy punctuated by widely-scattered eruptions of identical color. The colors advertise the availability of nectar, and hence the trees’ sexual readiness, to their indispensable pollinators lets  Trees (Meriania tomentosa) flowering at 8,000 feet (2,500 meters). below a rainforest toad (Bufo sp., veraguensis group) on the hunt. While supreme predators in their own right, many Bufo species protect themselves against predation both by secreting skin toxins and as a last resort by gulping air and inflating themselves to a difficult-to- swallow size in Amazon Wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips.



Due to the seasonality that is so prevalent throughout much of the Neo tropics, all along the Amazon and it’s various tributaries there is an often dramatic annual flood cycle. This causes seasonal changes in riverine water level, for example ranging approximately 7 m in Manu river. This exerts a significant impact on bordering ecosystems, including the forests that border these rivers. These forests are termed “gallery forests  in amazon wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips.

Rivers that drain young mountain systems, like the Andes, erode mineral-rich soil from these mountain areas. They then carry it for long distances, eventually to deposit much of it along riverbank flood plains. In Amazonia, floodplain forests that line rivers rich in Andean sediment are termed. Of the huge Amazon Basin area, these forests make up only about 2% – 4%. As these sediment-rich rivers tend to be cloudy from the sediment load, they are called Whitewater Rivers. These rivers and their banks are hosts to and support an existing diversity of animals, including capybaras, anaconda, two species of caimans, turtles, monkeys and many unique bird species in amazon wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips.

Of course, most of the forest area in Amazonia is found completely off the floodplain, and this is referred to as terra firme. In contrast with the terra firme forest, the varzea forest is usually higher with many emergent trees, but vegetation near the ground is not as densein amazon wildlife – Manu Jungle Trips.

Rivers give rise to a range of habitats: swamps, marshes, streams, oxbows, river islands. The cornucopia of habitats contributes to biodiversity by providing for a lot of species of plants and animals, species that otherwise would not be present. Fish have direct access to the forest during the flood cycle, with many species acting as important fruit and seed consumers as well as seed dispersers in amazon wildlife  – Manu Jungle Trips.


AMAZON WILDLIFE PERU :We include here information for those interested in the 2012 Field Guides amazon Wildlife Peru tour: A general introduction to the tour a description of the birding areas to be visited on the tour an abbreviated daily itinerary with some indication of the nature of each day’s birding outings.

Those who register for the tour will be sent this additional material an annotated list of the birds, mammals, Insect, Medicinal Plants  Recorded on a previous year’s Field Guides trip to the area, with comments by guide(s) on notable Species or sightings a detailed information bulletin with important logistical information and answers to questions regarding accommodations, air arrangements, clothing, currency, customs and immigration, documents, health precautions, and personal items a reference list a Field Guides checklist for preparing for and keeping track of the birds we see on the amazon wildlife after the conclusion of the tour, a list of birds seen on the tour Southeastern Peru is generally acknowledged as the most species-rich birding region on Earth. Manu Biosphere. Or amazon wildlife, incorporating Manu National Park and a couple of contiguous conservation tracts, is a vast, spellbinding wilderness (the size of Massachusetts!) that protects the entire watershed of the Rio Manu, a 200-mile long tributary of the Rio Madre de Dios, itself a middle-weight Amazon wildlife tributary winding eastward through lowland rainforest in the Department of Madre de Dios. The Reserve and its buffer zone also protect much of the Department of Cusco’s east slope Andean drainage from 14,000 feet in puna grasslands well above tree line down through temperate and subtropical cloud forest right down through the foothills to lowland rainforest. There are precious few places in South America where there is legal protection for a comparably rich transect of undisturbed forest on the diverse east slope of the Andes. This short tour is designed to focus on the incredibly rich lowland rainforest of the Manu Biosphere Reserve, thus complementing our MOUNTAINS OF MANU AMAZON WILDLIFE, which covers the upper levels of the Reserve. We have selected Amazon Wildlife Center as our one-site base for its comfort level, its ease of access, its marvelous network of trails, and its special viewing facilities, and its strategic location. With a wonderful grid system of trails and with covered 40-foot boats for river transport, the lodge offers us access to virtually all critical microhabitats within lowland Manu and hence to virtually in this amazon wildlife.

2 Amazon wildlife finding many species regularly occurring in this rich lowland rainforest. Not only are we close (about 40 minutes) to the famous Blanquillo ccollpa, where hundreds of parrots and large Red-and-green Macaws gather almost daily to ingest the mineral rich clay, but a trail from the lodge buildings takes us (in about an hour) to a forest-interior mineral lick (with a blind) that attracts more secretive forest birds and mammals, occasionally including Brazilian Tapirs, to the same kinds of minerals. Another trail takes us from our lodgings to a well-constructed canopy platform (with spiral metal staircase) that offers eye to-eye looks at numerous canopy specialties, from various toucans and cotingas to mixed-species flocks that move right through “our tree.” And twenty minutes downriver is a trail to yet another, even higher and larger, canopy platform (also accessed by a secure metal staircase) that offers incredible vistas and a different set of birds. We’ll bird river sandbars,hidden cocha lakes, some enormous stands of bamboo, transitional forest, and some wonderful tall terra firme forest amazon wildlife The official lodge bird list now stands at a whopping 580 species, among them an incredible number of classic Amazon Wildlife species and many regional specialties, including Orinoco Goose, Razor-billed Curassow, Starred Wood-Quail, Pale-winged Trumpeter, Blue-headed Macaw (rare), Amazonian Parrotlet (the “parrot without a name”, rare), Amazon wildlife Pygmy-Owl, Ocellated Poorwill, Purus and Bluish-fronted jacamars, Scarlet-hooded Barbet (rare), Curl-crested Aracari, Rufous-headed Woodpecker (rare), Peruvian Recurvebill (rare), Sclaterʼs Antwren, Manu, White-lined, Goeldiʼs, Whitethroated, and Hairy-crested antbirds, Rufous-fronted Antthrush, Ash-throated Gnateater (rare), Band-tailed Manakin,White-cheeked Tody-Tyrant (rare), Dull-capped Attila, White-winged Shrike-Tanager, and Yellow-shouldered Grosbeak. And that’s not to mention the long list of mammals, from Giant Otter and White-lipped Peccary to 13 species of primates and even the elusive Jaguar. Seeing many of these species takes time and patience; that’s why we are devoting eight days to the lowlands. Even so, we won’t see all of these in such a short time, but we can assure you of a trip full of wonderful views of hundreds of wonderful critters in a wilderness setting of impressive proportions. To avoid last-minute surprises due to an unreliable air service to Boca Manu that often results in flight cancellations, we have elected to travel overland, then downriver, to reach amazon wildlife.

Atalaya, we’ll travel by covered motorized dugout for about 7-8 hours down the Rio Alto Madre de Dios (we’ve never seen so many Fascinated Tiger-Herons – anywhere) and the Rio Madre de Dios (“Mother of God River”) to reach our lodge, set just back from the riverbank in a nicely planted clearing with tall rainforest immediately behind it. Amazon Wildlife offers substantial comfort for a remote Amazon wildlife, from cold drinks (and plenty of pure drinking water) screened, but there are also individual mosquito nets for each bed. A lovely dining area (with tasty, varied, healthy food) and a separate bar and lounge area (with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages always available) are connected to all the bungalows by graveled walkways. We’ll sleep to the sounds of the Amazon Wildlife. About the Physical Requirements & Pace: On our visit to one of the richest birding areas in the world, we will want to maximize the quality of our experience. In lowland Amazonia (where it’s warm and humid), this means early starts that allow us to be in the field shortly after dawn, when activity is at its peak. On a typical day we’ll start with an early breakfast (4:30 or 5:00) and bird watch along trails for the morning, returning to our lodge for lunch (12:30) and a break during the heat of the day, then going back out in the afternoon. This means that while we will usually be covering only two to four miles in a morning, you may be on your feet for six hours. There will be several exceptions for example, the boat trip to visit the macaw lick. And some trails are accessed by boat to start them. Along the trails we’ll typically move at a snail’s pace, walking quietly, watching the ground for tinamous, listening for the slightest growl that could betray the presence of an army ant swarm with its attendant followers or a shower of petals or seeds from the canopy that could alert us to the Presence of a flock of parrots or a troop of monkeys. We will use song playback to call in some fabulous skulkers that might otherwise go unseen. And, in the process, we’ll do considerable standing around just watching. Trails that are muddy and/or hilly in places will be covered slowly. In a few situations, for instance to reach a ccollpa or tower early, we will move steadily along level trails at a pace of around two miles an hour for a half hour. Our fastest pace will likely be on the way back to lunch The trails around MWC are excellent, but that does not mean that we will not regularly encounter tree falls or other new impediments that will require a small amount of agility, just as does getting in and out of the boat daily or crossing the wide log bridge with hand railing to the main trail network. The canopy towers will require knees that can handle 140 to 220 steps. This is the “rainforest” and rain can happen at any time, resulting in muddy trail conditions, so rubber boots are likely to be the main footwear we’ll use on most trails in this amazon wildlife

The Amazon Wildlife Tambopata National Reserve

The Tambopata National Reserve is a 275,000 hectare conservation unit created by the Peruvian amazon Wildlife government in 1990 to protect the watersheds of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers in amazon wildlife . It is adjacent to the huge 1 million hectare Bahuaja Sonene National Park. Whilst the reserve was created with an underlying philosophy of sustainable resource use, the park was created with the purpose of whole heartedly protecting the forests within. Both units protect some of the last untouched lowland and premontane tropical humid forests in the Amazon Wildlife . This Connecticut sized (or Switzerland-sized) area of pristine forest contains 1300 bird species, 32 parrot species (10% of the world’s total), 200 mammal species, 1200 butterfly species and over 10,000 species of vascular plants. Less than 5000 people (equivalent to a minor league sports event) inhabit the reserve’s “area of influence” to the north. They make a living off slash and burn agriculture, small scale gold mining, timber extraction, and hunting and fishing. One thousand Ese’ejas live in four titled communities within this area of influence in amzon wildlife . The under going construction of the Interoceanic Highway, joining Brazil’s north  Atlantic coast with Peru’s Pacific Coast and access to the Asian markets presents the principal threat over the mid term to this region’s incomparable wilderness. The amazon wildlife conservation units form part of the titanic 30 million hectare Vilcabamba Amboro Conservation Corridor. The corridor is formed by 16 protected areas ranging from the Vilcabamba mountain range to the west of Cusco to the Amboro National Park in central Bolivia, and includes Manu National Park to Amazon Wildlife , the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary and the Madidi National Park, among others. This corridor protects over 40 ethnic groups. Its objective is to spur the region’s development through participatory planning for the strengthening of local organizations, sustainable small businesses and agroforestry in order to minimize the loss of biodiversity in Amazon Wildife .Within this context, lie our three lodges – Amazon and the Amazon wildlife . They are a small part of the network of organizations and communities that are attempting to protect this amazing wilderness by creating and sharing the value of leaving the forest standing.

Amazon Wildlife Observation And Photography : The Amazon is extremely diverse, but large Amazon wildlife encounters are uncommon is one of the world ́s most diverse wildernesses. It is also one of the best preserved. However, the vast majority of the rainforest ́s  amazon wildlife diversity is in the form of insects. The world record diversities of birds and mammalsare mostly in the form of small, unspectacular species. Large spectacular species are rare, shy, unpredictable and very difficult to see, with few notable exceptions. So don ́t come expecting the Amazon wildlife densities of the African savannahs or the Antarctic Peninsula. We aren ́t in Jurassic Park or Disneyland, either. Nevertheless,  Amazon Wildlife is diverse and it is well pre served and exciting encounters do occur on a regular basis. At Tambopata Research Center, you will have some of the Amazon Wildife ́s best chances of seeing jaguar, tapir, giant river otters, harpy eagles, macaws, etc. However, the Amazon ́s best chances for some of these species are very slim, although they do occur. On average, for example, we encounter some 20 jaguars a year, perhaps the most difficult to see of the aforementioned species. Not only are large to amazon  wildlife encounters uncommon, but they are usually distant and/or fleet ing Another important thing to keep in mind is that when you do encounter Amazon wildlife, you will not have the clear, ample field of view of the African savannahs or Antarctica, or the reposed exhibits of a zoo. In all likelihood you will see the Amazon wildlife through branches, leaves, vine tangles and dense vegetation,scampering, stampeding, flying or leaping away from you, at heights of up to 40 metres for less than a minute. But wonderful encounters do happen. Jaguar encounters were mentioned above: one was of a jaguar eating a dead tapir, at 18 metres seen for 15 minutes by 8 people. Another one was of a jaguar sleeping on the beach in front of the Tambopata Amazon wildlife Our driver did three return trips to show everyone at the lodge, including staff, the sleeping jaguar. It was even filmed by a crew from the The next day, it was there again. Still another was of a jaguar that walked dead on to the middle of a group on a trail, was surprised by it, and then leapt the other way So…Do not expect Amazon wildlife to be encountered as it is found in African or North American parks. Come relaxed, with your eyes open and lots of curiosity. You will be in a place where every horizontal and vertical meter of forest probably has hundreds of species of organisms, different from one metre to the next. Just that thought should keep your sense of wonder alive throughout the trip.Then, all of a sudden, you may see that jaguar.If Amazon wildlife observation is hard, imagine photography The Amazon, with its magnificent scenery and diversity of fauna and flora is a photographer’s paradise. However it is a challenging environment for nature and wildlife photography. The first challenge photographers will face is with their camera equipment. Even before the first wildlife encounter, you will have to deal with elements that can cause havoc with your camera equipment. The high level of humidity, the ever changing weather conditions and even plastic-melting insect repellent will be a challenge to even the most reliable equipment. The second challenge comes in the form of the Amazon wildlife. Even though many guests have left the lodges with some very good images of macaws, river otters and even the extremely rare jaguar, we feel that it was because of good luckand being at the right place on the right time. Photography in the rain forest is a painstaking process and a game of long waits and Zen-like patience. Most people arrive after having viewed documentaries of the amazon wildlife area produced by the Discovery of amazon wildlife and have seen the pictures taken by famous professional photographers like These photographers visit the area on many occasions and spend months working to capture their images relying on climbing gear, tons of scaffolding, laser sensitive devices to detect movement and the expert help of teams of lodge staff and guides. It is a
natural but unrealistic reaction to believe that a person with a good camera and powerful zoom lenses can achieve the same results in a visit of a few days. In general, you will require lenses above 300 mm to produce good amazon wildlife photography on a full-frame camera. For macro photography , a flash will be required often. To make sure your equipment is protected from the elements, we recommend the use of river bags or waterproof camera cases.The use of dry bags and desiccant sachets are highly recommended to alleviate the problem with humidity, rain and the occasional water splashing in the canoe during the trips on the river. Zorb-it produce a range of moisture control packages excellent for this purpose. The use of a tripod at the clay lick is recommended and lenses ranging from 500mm upwards are necessary forbird close-ups at the clay lick itself, although sohrter lenses ca nbe used to capture the overall spectacle  amazon  wildlife :

Manu Biosphere reserve is 242km (150 miles) NE of Cusco Manu, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, certainly lack for distinctions and accolades. The Biosphere Reserve encompasses the least sible and explored jungle of primary and secondary forest in Peru, and it is about as as you’re likely to come to virgin rainforest anywhere in the world. In fact, it’s so r that not only did the Spaniards, who found their way to virtually every cornerof except Machu Picchu, never enter the jungle, but the Incas, who created an empire stretched from Ecuador to Chile, never conquered the region, either. The forest v, really penetrated until the late 1800s, when rubber barons and loggers set their sights it. Peru declared it a national park in 1973. Only slightly smaller than the.

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).




For flora and fauna, the Manu is pretty much unbeatable in South America, home to 20,000 vascular plant types (one five-square-kilometer area was found to contain 1147 species of vascular plants, almost as many as in the whole of Great Britain), with over 5000 flowering plants, 1200 species of butterfly, 1000 types of bird, 200 kinds of mammal and an unknown quantity of reptiles and insects. Rich in macaw salt-licks, otter lagoons and prowling jaguars, there are thirteen species of monkey and seven species of macaw in Manu, and it still contains other species in serious danger of extinction, such as the giant otter and the black caiman (Melanosuchus

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.

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.

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.
