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.

>THREE AREAS OF 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).

FLORA FAUNA OF THE MANU NATIONAL PARK

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 www.sandovallakeamazontravel.com)

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 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.
