Peruvian Amazon Complete Guide with Birds of Peru Tours
The Amazon River and the region where it was formed are among Peru's natural wonders and represent a treasure for the Inca nation. This river, which lends all of South America's rainforests their names, is separated into numerous different outflows that will pass through all of the countries' forested zones, including Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Brazil.
The Peruvian Amazon is therefore more than just its picturesque rivers and lakes. The rainforest is beautiful and real, and it represents adventures, delightful surprises, food, and nature. Do you intend to go there?

Let us share with you the main characteristics that preserved the Peruvian Amazon.
Amazonian Peruvian Location
The Amazon rainforest can be found in the eastern region of Peru, sandwiched between Brazil to the east and the Andes to the west. The north is covered by Colombia and Ecuador, while Bolivia is in the south. 60 percent or so of the Inca Country is covered by the Peruvian Amazon.
Peru now ranks second in terms of the number of Amazonian regions, slightly behind Brazil, based on this proportion. There may only be 13% of Peruvians living there. What is the reason? There was a wide range of fauna and plants in the uninhabited, natural area.
A political territory known as Madre de Dios (Mother of God) is situated in southern Peru. The most significant area in Peru’s Amazon region is this department. Its political center is a division called Puerto Maldonado.
Puerto Maldonado, as its name suggests, is a crucial Amazon port for travelers looking to start an adventure in the south Peruvian jungle. Among the most significant activities that begin in this city are canoeing, bird viewing, and jungle treks, among other things.
Additionally, Puerto Maldonado is near Cusco and Machu Picchu, not to forget that incredible ecological reserves and sanctuaries like Manu and Tambopata encircle it. Consequently, Puerto Maldonado trips can represent the start of a great adventure in the Peruvian rainforest.
Manu National Park
Manu is the most well-known national park in Peru. With more than 1.7 million hectares and significant biodiversity over the entire south of Peru, the reserve is divided into three regions that you should be aware of before planning any tours there.
The first is the Manu National Park on its own, a protected area that is only accessible to native tribes and park rangers, as well as a select group of researchers and scientists who have permission from the appropriate authorities. The other one is the Cultural Zone. The bulk of tourists in Manu visit this region.
This wildlife area has the benefit of being easily accessible by automobile from Cusco and can be reached in a full day. Due to its proximity to Cusco, it can lose some of its allure of solitude and peace and instead have regions with a lot of people.
The Manu National Reserve, besides Brazil, is the third one and is situated much further into the rainforest. To reach there, you must fly from Lima or Cusco to Puerto Maldonado, then take a boat up a river that runs through the middle of the forest. But it has a huge diversity of flora and fauna, making it ideal for individuals who want to engage in specialized activities such as Bird Watching Chile and wildlife photography.
Tambopata National Reserve
The Tambopata Zone is one of the finest habitats to observe wildlife in its natural environment. You can participate in trips to locations like Chuncho mud lick and Sandoval Lake, among many more. Because journeys to Manu Park require far more planning and advanced bookings, Tambopata typically sees much more visitors than the Manu area.
Despite this, visitors can travel to Manu and Tambopata at any time of year. The rainforest covers over 1,000 square miles of the national reserve. For instance, there are more than 1,200 species of butterflies and 595 bird species.
So, if you are planning a Peruvian Rainforest Trip, visit Birds of Peru Tours and book your trip with them.
