Amazon rainforest 1 of 2

So having survived the Lares Trek and experience the majesty of Manchu Pichu, it was time to experience another draw of Peru.  The Amazon rain forest.

It is the most bio diverse place in the world and holds half of the world’s species in its canopy alone.  So I couldn’t wait to visit although it was to be a rather arduous journey to get there.  It started with a 4am pick up by van which travelled on modern highways, to asphalt single lane roads, to dirt tracks and then to rocky paths where it wasn’t clear there really was a way.  After 7 hours we arrived at the dock and then enjoyed a further 3 hours heading upriver on a narrow boat to our camp.

As for whether it was worth it, you make your mind up with the photos.
