 MANU RIVER  – MANU TOUR  : Manu River totals 356 km in longitude, of which 296 km is inside the Manu National Park and 60 km is inside the Reserved Zone. It is an old river, which grows 5 to 8 meters during the rainy season and moves 5 to 20 tons of earth from the outer curves of the river. It gives its name to the whole biosphere reserve. Some sources give the origin of the name to one indian tribe, encountered by the Incas, the Manonahuas. But in a native language, the word “manu” means «dark», which is surely indicating the dark colour of the water. The colour is not caused by manufactured chemicals, as the river is completely free of such pollution. Instead, the darkness is due to a heavy load of fine sediments, a blend of sand and silt from the headwater hills in amazon manu tour

The Manu Biosphere Reserve :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 Biosphere Reserve is concerned by 3 major biogeographically provinces (the Puna, the Yungas and the Amazonian provinces). It ranges from 200 to 4020 m a.s.1. Combinated with topographic, soil and climate conditions; the Manu Biosphere Reserve is characterized by a very hight level of diversity (Natural World Heritage Site). Some of the wildlife species are endangered. The Manu Biosphere Reserve is composed of 3 main areas a core area (the Manu National Park) devoted to conservation, a buffer area including indigenous territories and private ecological reserves, a transition area with biogeographical boundaries and experimental, application and traditional use areas. The biological station of Cocha Cachu alows to carry out different researches on biological species. and ecosystems. An inventory of the biodiversity was undertaken in the Manu Reserve Zone since 1987. Planning and monitoring research are also performed in the core and buffer areas. An applied research programme aims to set up sustained management of biological resources such as Cedrela odorata and Podocnemis unifilis. Since 1991 an agroforestry project has been initiated (soil fertility, fallow agriculture) and complemented by studies on animal husbandry systems, fodder for ruminants and fishery resources. Indigenous population’s ownership of the land is recognized by the State (traditional use area). Colonization around the national park took place during the forties with logging and farming activities. Resident populations have access to natural resources through mining, subsistence farming and cattle rising. An integrated conservation and development project of the Manu Biosphere Reserve aims to manage the resource base, to improve social and economic development and to extend in Manu National Park
