The Peruvian Amazon Jungle
The Peruvian Amazon is the area of Amazon jungle which lies inside Peruvian territory; it spreads east of the Andes to its borders with Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil and Bolivia. This region covers 60% of Peru and is marked by a large degree of biodiversity.
The Peruvian Amazon is traditionally divided into two distinct ecoregions: The lowland jungle, called Selva Baja in Spanish, is also known as the Omagua region, Walla, Anti, Amazonian rainforest and/or Amazon basin. This is the largest ecoregion of Peru, and lies between 80 and 1000 meters above sea level. The highland jungle, in Spanish known as Selva Alta and also called Rupa-Rupa region, Andean Jungle, Ceja de Selva, extends into the eastern foothills of the Andes, lying between 1000 to 3800 m above sea level.
The Peruvian Government, (SERNANP) has declared different areas of the Amazon as protected zones, because of their distinct geographic characteristics and rich flora and fauna. Different Lodges located in strategic or reserved areas with specialized programs offer diverse options to our visitors.
