AMAZON tropical rainforest is the largest nature reserve in the world spread across the territory of 9 South American countries. The name Amazon is always associated with the concept of biosphere reserves for humans.
For many years, Amazon became a very popular subject in the film industry and a challenge for film makers. Movies like Fitzcarraldo (1982), The Emeral Forest (1985), Medicine Man (1992), … weave stories, images of a mysterious Amazon. Close to the top, in Embrace of the Serpent (nominated for Best Film in the Foreign Language Oscar 2016), directed by Ciro Guerra, Amazon shows up clearly with black and white frames. There is always speculation about the survival behind the dense forest and the fast flow of the Amzon River, but once you are determined to seek experience, you will have extremely different feelings about this legendary place. .
A road to the forest emerald
I went around South America and spent most of my time in Peru by this country as a miniature planet with all the forms of an Earth. Peru has snow-capped Andes highland terrain, plain green valleys, surrounding deserts, dense rivers and streams, tropical rainforest … which you previously thought had to be discovered in many places.
Amazon in Peru is a combination of two ecosystems, tropical rainforests and rich river basins in terms of density of endemic flora and fauna. The average temperature usually ranges from 25 to 28 degrees Celsius, the average humidity is relatively high at 75%. The floating water season of the river has a place of up to 40km, the estuary area sometimes opens up to 325km according to estimates and the water level rises above 7m. The boat floated on the largest river on the planet where its starting point also had an equally attractive name is the Andes alpine. Then the river divides into more than 1,000 branches that cross into a dense network that supplies 20% of global freshwater and flows into the Atlantic Ocean in huge amounts. The Amazon River forms the rich and hidden “muddy area inhabitants” under the flow of more than 3,000 species of fish and many new species found annually by researchers.
Forest are woven from pearl color
Tambopata Research Station is located deep in the forest of sparsely populated areas, only about 5% of the population including Aboriginal people with secluded tribes and the most remote in the system of research and conservation zones. Therefore, this is an ideal place to observe and participate in day and night, onshore and water activities.
The second largest forest area is only after Brazil, but because it accounts for 60% of the national area, Amazon is the largest in terms of coverage. Nearby South American countries are Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil and Bolivia. Isolation due to rugged terrain and wet tropical forests is an ideal place to shape a long and rich biota of endemic animals.
The earth we live in is surrounded by many green lungs that divide on continents, but the Amazon is still in the best position because of its potential power. Not only is the most biodiversity basin on earth, Amazon also holds a hidden beauty that has never been discovered by humans forever. Only when you come to Amazon will you understand the smallness of people before nature, and realize the terrible devastation of the human empire.
