Manu Expedition – Systems and Ecological Levels: Approximately 20 million years ago the Andes Mountains began to rise, and orographic uplift has continued without ceasing up to the present day. Today the Andes chain is still one of the most active geological areas on the planet. The chains of mountains stretch from southern most Patagonia, north through to Mexico they add to the climate and, thus, the biotic diversity of the Neo tropics. Manu Expedition in jungle trips.

manu expeditions

The geologically youthful Andes are located in western South and Central America. They are hosts for different altitudinal ecosystems and they also act as barriers isolating populations. The north-south orientation of the Andes results in some of the most arid deserts in the western hemisphere being located in coastal Peru and Chile. The Andes Mountains can be seen as a gigantic wall that prevents the moisture laden air that accumulates in the Amazon Basin from reaching the Peruvian and Chilean coasts. Clouds are forced up by the tall mountains and the moisture in them condenses to snow, or rain at mid to low elevation. On the eastern slope of the Andes rain falls heavily. This creates conditions capable of supporting extremely Lush Mountain and lowland rainforest. One of the major sources of water for the Amazon Basin is snow melt from the Andes.In essence, the Andes maintain the system of precipitation recycling within the Amazon Basin. The Amazon Basin has a shape like an immense horseshoe, with the ancient Guiana Shield bordering to the northThe Brazilian Shield to the south, and the Andes to the west. This topography means that all the water existing in the system is to the east, at the huge mouth of the Amazon. This loss is replaced by the input of rain and melting snow draining from the high Andes. Thus the Amazon Basin is kept in a state of hydrographic equilibriumin Manu Expedition

The air that eventually passes over the tall mountains to the other side is fundamentally depleted of its moisture, causing the occurrence of dry deserts on the western side. This “rain shadow effect” means that ecosystems with the same elevation may be dramatically different from one side of a mountain to the other.

Manu Maquisapayoj Rainforest Clay Lick 4 days: Mammals clay lick, this Clay Lick is a special place where attending various mammals like Tapir, Peccary and Deer account front with a observation platform ideal for visitors wishing to share a unique experience of seeing these animals in their nocturnal activities in manu expedition.

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! 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!

MANU EXPEDITION CLOUD FOREST FOOTHILLS AND RAINFOREST Here is an opportunity to visit one of the wildest and most pristine rainforests on the planet, a region where all the top predators are still present from jaguars and Harpy Eagles to the smallest
Prey species. The huge Manu Expedition and biosphere reserve, encompassing over four and a half million acres, preserves an entire ecosystem. Not a single element is missing or removed, and it .Is a land where humans still coexist in a harmonious state with the natural environment. This can be said of relatively few other places on earth. It is widely acknowledged that the park hosts the most diverse flora and fauna of any park in the world to Manu expedition, and the region is home to three tribes of Indians live there who live all or partly within the present park boundaries. Two of these tribes, Manu expedition in fact, have little or no contact with the outside world. The boundaries of Manu National Park and the biosphere reserve that surrounds it embrace an unbroken rainforest stretching from the western Amazonian IN Manu expedition lowlands to the puna above tree line. This area is home to more than 1,000 species of birds. Tour participants will be treated to a broad spectrum of forest habitats and will have the opportunity to stay at three different locations, covering virtually all elevations. The locations are near or within the biosphere reserve surrounding the park. The localities include a cloud forest at about 5,000 feet elevation, a foothill location (an old tea plantation), and a lowland rainforest in Manu expedition site along the Madre de Dios River. A great variety of birds and mammals are possible on this trip, including some species that are rare or not well known, such as the Orinoco Goose, Blue-headed Macaw, Scarlet-hooded Barbet, Bamboo Antshrike, Manu Antbird, Rufous-fronted Antthrush, and White-cheeked and Blackbacked tody-lycatchers. There also are many spectacular species: Razor-billed Curassow, Sunbittern, Horned Screamer, five or six species of macaws, Curl-crested Araçari, and Band-tailed Manakin. Mammals are difficult to observe in forest habitats, but because of the wildness of the Manu expedition region, we will have unparalleled opportunities to see from eight or more species of monkeys, including the incomparable Emperor Tamarin. Other possible primates include Woolly Monkey (in the cloud forest), Black Spider Monkey, Squirrel Monkey, Dusky Titi Monkey, Red Howler Monkey,Saddle-backed Tamarin, Night Monkey, and both Brown-and White-fronted capuchin monkeys. There is a good chance that tour participants will see Giant Otters, as well as capybaras. And, while at the Manu expedition, we may have the opportunity to see a tapir if one comes in to a salt lick at night. This is also one of the best places in the world to see a jaguar, although they occur in low density and are only infrequently seen. We have seen jaguars on a number of our trips to Manu expedition

After breakfast, we continue to a nearby port to sail across the Inambari River on boat (10 minutes) and afterwards, we get on again our private vehicle and continue riding for about an hour until we reach the main port at Puerto Colorado. Our motorboat awaits us there to sail up the Madre de Dios River for about 4 hours to take us to the Maquisapayoq Lodge, a place of a red-faced spider monkey habitat. On the route, we are given opportunity to see the wildlife of its rocky shores, for example, 13 monkey species, herons, purple magpies, vultures, caimans and crocodiles. In the afternoon, we reach the lodge and accommodate ourselves in private twin rooms with private bathrooms in Manu Expedition

Then, we explore routes around the clay-lick spotting more animal species such as monkeys, birds, frogs, spiders, ants, butterflies and much more. We return for lunch to our lodge. Another excursion awaits us afterwards, this time to the Camungo Lake where we board a boat to observe its typical inhabitants – giant river otters and a variety of birds! Then, we continue to a nearby 42 meter high observation tower, a suitable place to watch birds and take photos of lovely Amazonian scenery! Later on, we get back to the boat and sail for one hour to reach our lodge where we get ready for our night adventure! It means, we walk for one and half an hour through the rainforest with direction to a tapir 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 inManu Expedition

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

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

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)

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.

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.

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.
