MANU CENTER – TROPICAL ALPINE SHRUB/GRASSLAND – PARAMO: At altitudes above cloud and elfin forests, from Costa Rica south to Bolivia, a shrub land ecosystem occurs. This is named paramo. This ecosystem has a wet and cool climate, which throughout the year often sees nightly frosts. Large clumped grasses called tussock grasses with sharp, yellowish blades, along with a scattering of terrestrial bromeliads and ferns, are the dominant vegetation.Among a landscape of paramo, at elevations between 3,500 and 4,500 m (11,400 – 14,800 ft.) in the Andes, (which is normally above timberline), islands of gnarled trees confined to protected, rocky slopes can be seen. These groups of trees are dominated by the genus Polylepis, occurring in essentially pure stands at the higher elevations. Polylepis can also be found in lower-elevation cloud forests but normally mixed among other species. Polylepis is very drought resistant,with the largest trees reaching heights of about 18 m 59 ft this ecosystem type is considered threatened throughout much of its range in manu center

We have breakfast there before our observation. The “show” starts at about 5:50 am with an arrival of smaller parrots and parakeets and finishes with an arrival of big macaws (Ara Chloroptera). All of them come to eat clay that helps them to digest and clean their bodies from toxins!! We return to the lodge for lunch. Later on, an exploration of a nearby route expects us to bring us to the stunning place of the Maquisapayoq tapir´s clay-lick! There, we spend the night observing tapirs and other mammals from an opposite hidden platform (with cushions and mosquito´s nets) placed just 3 metres far away from the clay-lick in Manu Center

Please note: you can also spend the night in a lodge close to the river (in twin rooms), if you prefer.

COMMENT

ELFINWOOD FOREST  – MANU CENTER: Trees and shrubs at the lower elevations (exact elevation varies with latitude) become noticeably higher in stature, many extremely gnarled and heavily laden with epiphytes, especially mosses, lichens, and bromeliads Also, microphyllous epiphytes such as lichens, green algae, and bryophytes abound. Forest stunted in this way is termed elf wood. Sometimes these diminutive forests are so dense that they are impenetrable. Elfin wood is characterized by an abundance of short twisted trees that are barely 2 meters tall. There is a climate of nearly perpetual mist, which means that the growth of trees is significantly slowed by a shortage of sunlight as well as by the low temperatures. Tree stature is short because the trees cannot obtain sufficient energy to invest in stems and nor is there much point since the light is so diffuse. Also, the moisture-saturated atmosphere can make transpiration difficult, which perhaps limits trees in their nutrient uptake from the soil.-In comparison to lower-elevation forests, elfin forests have a lower species richness of trees. This is probably due to the greater rigor of the climate in manu center

MANU CENTER :We visit a special site of the Manu National Park – a private reserve of Maquisapayoq and Blanquillo, situated in the southern part of the park! We discover there some paths going through this virgin part of the jungle manu center

To get there, we use the newly paved Interoceanic Highway for the most of the travel followed by a much shorter travel on the Madre de Dios River by motorboat..Blanquillo offers perfect conditions to observe river otters in a nearby lake and macaws, parrots and parakeets in one of the best clay-licks of Manu!!

Maquisapayoq is an exceptional clay-lick serving to tapirs and other animals to eat clay! There is also a special roofed platform with mosquito´s nets where visitors can overnight while watching tapirs arriving to eat at nights in manu center

Manu National Park and World Heritage Biosphere : is considered by many experts as the most important rainforest park in the world offering the fabled city of Cusco and the mythical Inca citadel of Machu Picchu as its gateway. About half the size of Switzerland, Manu center protects an entire virgin watershed from Andean grasslands at 12,000 ft. down to cloud forests, to the vast lowlands below 1,000 ft. above sea level. Manu’s center virgin primary rainforests boast world-record diversities of birds (more than 1,000 species) mammals (more than 200 species), reptiles, amphibians, fresh-water fishes, insects and plants (over 15,000 species). No other area in North or South America offers such superb viewing of rare or difficult to observe animals, such as the two-meter long and gregarious Giant Otters, 13 species of monkeys, white and black caiman (crocodiles), seven species of macaws (the world’s largest parrots), ten species of toucans, guans, curassows, and trumpeters (all rare game birds), and the largest land animal in Central and South America, the Tapir. No other park on earth can compare with Manu center in terms of sheer variety of life forms. A patch of lowland rainforest in Manu center harbors 40% more species of birds than a comparable patch of forest .Manu Center :Nowhere is this amazing diversity more evident than in the tropical and temperate forests and associated habitats of the Reserva Biosfera de Manu center (hereafter called Manu center Biosphere Reserve, the name by which most birders know it) in south-east Peru. A UNESCO World Heritage Site of nearly 1.9 million ha, comprised of the Manu center National Park, associated multiple-use zones and native community lands. Manu lies on the east slope of the Andes and protects almost the entire watershed of the río Manu and most tributaries of the río Alto Madre de Díos. The reserve encompasses a vast range of altitudinal zones and habitat types, peaking at more than 4,000 m in the chilly high Andes, and descending to hot, humid lowland Manu Center Amazonian forests at 350 m. Up to ten types of lowland forest have been identified in this part of the south-west Amazon Manu Center, and these can be further subdivided into many distinctive microhabitats – Jungle Trips.

This biological wealth is also evident at the species level. Some 300 species of tree are often crammed into a single hectare of lowland forest. More than 1,300 butterfly species have been recorded in one area of Manu center (Pakitza). During a typical tour, wildlife-watchers encounter at least eight species of primate, enjoy South American Tapir Tapirus terrestris and other mammals by night at clay-licks, bump into a Giant Otter Pteronura brasilensis family on an oxbow lake, and frequently see Jaguar Panthera onca along rivers.

But it is the avian richness that tends to enthrall most visitors to Manu center. The total of 1,020 species so far recorded is not only higher than that of any other protected area worldwide but also eclipses that of many entire countries (even favored birding destinations such as Costa Rica). Moreover, two-thirds of the reserve remain unexplored; many additional bird species and, remarkably, uncontested indigenous tribes are likely to inhabit these remote areas in Manu center- Jungle Trips.

Visiting Manu Center :Some 5,000 visitors make the trip to Manu Center each year, roughly 5% being dedicated birders. On a typical 2–3 week trip covering all altitudes, birders accompanied by experienced leaders regularly record 550–650 species. There is something for everyone at Manu. Center Some birders start early, finish late and ‘bird until they drop’. Others come for a relaxed birding holiday, staying at

manu center

comfortable lodges, visiting macaw licks (called collpas), paddling on oxbow lakes and passing a leisurely morning atop one of the many canopy towers. As access is restricted, almost all visitors come on a tour: only authorized operators can take visitors into Manu National Park center and all must be accompanied by an official guide. Granted, almost all Manu center bird specialties and much other wildlife can be seen in adjacent areas, but even these are remote, so access is really only feasible as part of a tour or if you are sponsored by a lodge or NGO working in the area in Manu center – Jungle Trips.

Highlights of a typical tour Manu Center :A typical Manu center starts from Cusco at 3,300 m, crosses the last Andean mountain range, drops down the east slope of the Andes into the lowland Amazon forests Manu center , and returns by air from the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado to Lima or Cusco. Cusco is a major hub for exploring Inca culture, most famously at the ruins of Machu Picchu, and for adventure sports (so there is plenty to interest a non-binding spouse!). On the first day of a trip, birders usually visit the wetlands of Huacarpay, 30 minutes’ drive from Cusco, the ancient Inca capital of Peru, where Andean waterfowl and marsh birds abound. Here the beautiful Bearded Mountaineer Oreonympha nobilis, a restricted-range species endemic to southern Peru, can be seen feeding in Manu center

MANU BIOSPHERE RESERVE

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

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)

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.

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.

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.
