Wild Guacamon Collpa – Manu Blanquillo 7 days: In Manu, typical areas of macaw salt stones are the (Scheela butyracea) palm trees, known as Shebonal. Pew nutrients, a high concentration of aluminum, and low organic matter characterize these areas. There is poor drainage due to the high concentration of clay in the soil. Thus, during the rainy season, areas are easily flooded and during the form of clay bricks dry season. It is not surprising that these macaws use high concentrated aluminum clay to cure their stomach pains. Aluminum hydroxide medications are also used in the Manu National Park.
Only red and green macaws, Grunflugel (ARA chloptera) have been observed to frequently visit the clay Blanquillo clique. In my personal opinion, a layer of clay can be a social place where single macaws seek out their parent pair. When feeding on a hand, macaws are very nervous as they can be easily attacked by predators on the open wall. They are especially vulnerable because their head is inside a hole to eat the clay. The souls that left this world follow the direction of the waters of the Seronhai River. That is the river of those who were born to the other world. Then it is a point in the Seronhai opens in two directions. In the middle is the Yongkatone, a giant macaw. You have to give him something to eat and he will let you in, to continue his trip to Wanamei, to the tree where he will live happily and nothing less. For that reason, it is good to give something to eat those who are dying of hunger because if you do not give him something to eat at Yongkatone, it becomes bitter and he cut his head and throw it across the river, where there is a fire in Collpa Wild – Manu Blanquillo. Wild Collpa – Manu Blanquillo is “Collpa” in Quechua language (native mountain) salt of the earth. Also native to the jungle used it to designate certain areas used by animals indefinitely for a supplement of salts and minerals in their diet. These help against strong alkaloids and toxins found in plants and many tropical rainforest trees. During the Peru Nature Tour, we will visit one of the most famous “collpas” (that means Collpa in English) – Collpa Blanquillo !! You are not given the opportunity to see a large number of macaws, parrots and parrots! In addition, you can observe the wildlife and lush vegetation of the Culture Zone of the Manu National Park, Blanco Lago (Cocha) and Camungo lake!
