Does the Amazon go through Peru?
The Peruvian Amazon comprises an area of 782,880.55 km² east of the Andes Mountain Range. It is one of the areas with the greatest biodiversity and endemism on the planet, covering two natural regions: high forest and low jungle, occupying more than 60% of the Peruvian territory. The area is a huge geological depression in which the great plains, mountains, small mountain areas, flood territories predominate. This area have as a result a great degree of biodiversity and beautiful landscapes.
Peru offers great Itineraries and Tour packages to enjoy the Forest, safely and with enriching activities. To take a program to the Peruvian jungle you have two main entry points: the Amazon-South zone with the city of Puerto Maldonado, and the Amazon Nort zone with the city of Iquitos. Both areas offer each traveler their amazing Protected Reserves and National Parks. – Without doubt, an unforgettable experience!
Why is the Peruvian Amazon important?
The Amazon rainforest plays an important part in regulating the world’s oxygen and carbon cycles. It produces roughly 6 percent of the world’s oxygen and has long been thought to act as a carbon sink, meaning it readily absorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
What is the best time to go to the peruvian rainforest?
The best time to visit the jungle in Peru is during the dry season (June – November), when water levels are low and trails are dry and better for explorers. But, keep in mind that during the rainy season (December – May), the weather is mild, and there is a better chance of spotting animals. Overall, both the dry and rainy seasons are great times of the year to visit the peruvian forest.
