YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK: The translation of Ninamarca is the town of fire in  queshua language  nina means  fire and marka  means places or town  This significance could stem from the fact that, especially during the wintertime, people can see small fires burning on the ground from a distance. The traditional belief is that these fires mark the hiding places of Inca treasure.

In Ninamarka there are beautifully-hewn, pre Inca stone  ( chullpas) or burial towers. Important people, like local chiefs or priests, were possibly buried in these tombs. These are remnants of the kingdom of Lupaca, whose center was just north of Lake Titicaca. Both the Incas and Lupacas were masters at cultivating the different ecological zones offered by the Andes. Unfortunately, there are no archeological studies looking at Ninamarka.

YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK  – PAUCARTAMBO

The capital of the same province is the town of Paucartambo. It is at 3000 m elevation and has about 50,000 inhabitants. For the Incas, at the time when the Spanish conquistadores arrived, Paucartambo was an important administrative center and strategic location for military supplies. However, the actual town of Paucartambo is totally colonial. The Inca ruins are situated a few hours prior to the town at a site named Huaytoqto. The region is an important producer of different varieties of potatoes. The town is quite peaceful all year round. The local campesinos  only come to trade their products in the markets on Sundays.

There is a drastic change to Paucartambo, dating from the 15th to the 18th of July every year. During this time, the locals and people from different areas come to revere “La Virgin del Carmen  She is the saint of Paucartambo’s people. The religious festival in her honor is big with a lot of folkdances, fireworks, drinking etc. The central day is the 16th of July. In the main plaza there are statues of all the 16 folk dancers,

YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK  – ACJANACO

Acjanaco is at the beginning of the Manu Biosphere Reserve on your route, and it is also the most southern part of the Reserve. Acjanaco is at an elevation of 3200 meters. The road to your left leads to the lookout point of Tress Cruces (Three Crosses), which is famous for its spectacular sunrise, which is only possible to observe in Acjanaco and in Japan. The best time to see it is during July and August. During the rest of the year, the area is normally too cloudy. The clouds form because of the humidity which rises from Thunor them jungle side of the Mountains.

The Incas used to observe the summer and winter solstices from Tress Cruces. From this natural platform they also gazed out over the immense expanse of Amazon rainforest. That view was the eastern boundary of their known world. On the eastern side the highest mountain of the Biosphere, the “Apu Kanahuay” mountain with its 4050 meters of altitude, can be observed. The translation of “Apu Kanahuay” from queshua is “that who is near God

YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK  – THE VALLEY OF KNOSNIPATA

Known as Knosnipata in queshua, this valley is at 900 meters, 3000 feet of elevation. It has been inhabited for many decades. First came opportunists and missionaries, but more lately the settlers have been landless peasants from the highlands, especially from Puno.

The gravelly soil is poor and unforgiving. Millennia of torrential rains have washed out all the natural fertility. Despite this, the inhabitants of the valley still cultivate crops, (rice, manioc, coca, bananas, other different kind of fruits), as they have done for decades.

There are three main settlements in the valley: Chontachaca, Patria and Pilcopata. However the valley of Knosnipata has been losing population over the last two decades due to the soil exhaustion and the exploitable timber stocks.

YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK –  ALTO MADRE DE DIOS

Big open walls on the side of the river are visible shortly after leaving the port of Atalaya. Look more carefully, and you can see three different layers in the wall. The lowest reddish colored earth is old sea bottom. This is from millions of years ago when the Amazon Basin was an inner sea. Above this there is a layer of big stones, which is ancient river bottom. Above that there is the actual earth layer.

The Alto Madre de Dios River stretches about 150 km in length. It gets its water from the snow peak of Pucara from southeast of Paucartambo. Smaller rivers like Pilcopata and Piñi Piñi and Tono form the Alto Madre de Dios, which later joins the Manu River. This then forms the Madre de Dios River. This water later joins with the Beni River in Bolivia and forms the Madeira River in Brazil, ending finally at Amazonas.

YOURS  ROUTE  TO MANU NATIONAL PARK – BOCA MANU

The small village of Boca Manu (The Mouth of Manu) is the capital of District of Fitzcarrald. It is situated at the conjunction of the Alto Madre de Dios and Manu Rivers. It is here that the dark brown colored sediment loaded waters of the Manu River meet the clearer waters of the Alto Madre de Dios River. Alto Madre de Dios is clearer because its origins are high in the Andes.

The framers of Manu:

Celestino Kalinowski was a naturalist by vocation and heritage. His dream was the establishment of a natural museum in the Manu. His great concern was to preserve this area of ​​human predation. He visited Felipe Benavides, president of national parks, to tell you of the need to close off the loggers, hunters and prospectors. In May 1973, Reserve Manu National Park was declared. Since 1977 the park has enjoyed the status of Biosphere Reserve, awarded by UNESCO.

In 1887 John Kalinowski came to Peru to investigate the jungle of Madre de Dios. To him the discovery of valuable specimens for our wildlife and rich in our flora is due. The world began to know the great diversity and lost interest in those areas of southeastern Peru. Even some species adopted the name of its discoverer, as Dasyprocta – Kalinowski.

His son, Celestino Kalinowski Villamonte, inherited the vision and passion for the intricate fronds of the Peruvian jungle, precisely because those enigmatic territories kept for myth and mystery the great Païtiti, the much sought lost city of the Incas.

Such was the concern by Celestino Kalinowski Manu, who in 1964 visited Felipe Benavides Barreda, then president and Zonal National Parks, to warn of the need to close off the loggers, hunters and prospectors. He feared that beautiful confluence of rivers and forests remain at the mercy of humans. In a letter he suggested that the Manu reserved zone should be declared.

Benavides sought British naturalist Ian Grimwood, who undertook to alinowski, a scientific expedition in 1967, this could show that the evidence of the growing dangers and great natural wealth. From the data collected and under  of draft reports was achieved sustain the character of nature reserve. This effort paid off in the recognition of the Manu River basin Reserved Zone in 1968 In May 1973, the reserve was declared a National Park. In that area the flora and fauna to enjoy full backup since. Since 1977, the park boasts the Biosphere Reserve status, awarded by UNESCO. Ten years later he was declared a Natural World Heritage Site, Peru became a symbol in the world. What is Manu, has its origin in the inspiration and effort of a few zealous and nature lovers.

A MODEST MAN. The British Ian Grimwood Kalinowski said it was simple and was born naturalist. NATURAL WEALTH. Protected area thanks  to the efforts of some nature lovers as Kalinowski and Benavides. FELIPE BARREDA BENAVIDES. It was a permanent struggle for environmental care nature.

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).

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.

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.
