Amazon Rainforest Experience


The ‘Amazon Forests’, the world’s largest source of fresh water, home to 10 percent of biodiversity alone, the source of our lungs, our colour, our voice, the source of life and the paradise on earth… river and forest walk. Giant trees (ceiba) 40-45 meters tall, poisonous plants, leaf-bearing ants in a wonderful organization as if they will never die, termite nests, giant poisonous ants, squirrel monkeys, parrots, piranhas and many more… very beautiful.

The vast majority of settlements in the Amazon lie along the banks of the Amazon River, which runs through these rainforests. It rises from the summit of the Andes Mountains in Peru and stretches 6,400 km across the continent. The Amazon River, stretching from the east coast of Brazil, empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The settlements by the river are not in the form of primitive tribes, but are composed of communities that have passed into today’s modern life. So don’t expect naked people dancing and singing around a big cauldron on the banks of the Amazon River. The ‘Amazon Indigenous Tribes’ are found in the inner parts of this forest.

Amazon Jungle Attractions

How to get to the Amazon jungle and where to visit and see in the Amazon rainforest? Let’s talk about these issues briefly. You cannot say that you should go and visit this huge forest that covers 1/3 of the South American continent. There are two important reasons for this;

First of all, these forests do not have a ground and soil like the forests we know. In most of them, there is no environment to walk as if you are walking in the field. Second, it is dangerous.

We are talking about a dense forest where sunlight never reaches 20 percent of its territory. An environment full of swamps, poisonous plants, deadly animals. You can be paralyzed for life from a small mosquito bite.

There are also indigenous tribes that do not welcome guests from the outside world. Apart from natural disasters, it is said that there is a heavy drug traffic on the Amazon River and in the hidden areas in the forest. This is just the known and heard part. Who knows what other dangers there are that we do not know. So you don’t have a chance to say “Come on guys, let’s go to Amazon and have a barbecue”. Maybe you will go, but there is no guarantee that you will come back this time! The Brazilian government has protected most of these lands and has imposed an entry ban.

We say it is under protection, but the fires that break out every year in the Amazon forests can reach such dimensions as to wipe a small country off the map. In addition, there is no end to the illegal workers and farmers who continuously cut down the forest illegally, destroying thousands of football fields and forested areas every year. Only in the first half of 2019, 74 thousand different fires broke out or broke out in the Amazon forests!

Amazon forests have so many interesting features that you have never heard of or know about… More than 400 new plant and animal species have been discovered here since 2010. There are still undiscovered species.

The Amazon makes up more than half of all rainforests in the world. When it’s sunny in the Amazon jungle, it can get dark and rain in minutes. All seasons of the year are hot and humid.

One of the greatest features of the Amazon forest is that it maintains the carbon dioxide balance in the atmosphere. And it balances the ecosystem of our world. The world’s most dangerous animals such as the black caiman crocodile, jaguar, cougar, anaconda, electric eel, piranha and vampire bat live in the rainforest. The Amazon jungle is also home to deadly diseases such as mosquito-borne yellow fever, dengue fever, and malaria.

In addition, in dry and sunny weather, the Amazon forests sometimes create their own rain with the fog cloud formed as a result of the sweating of the plants. The vegetation is so dense that the sun’s rays never reach 20% of the Amazon forest floor. The trees in this forest do not shed their leaves throughout the year. Old leaves are constantly replaced with new ones, and the forest is green all year round. Primitive tribes live in the jungles of the Amazon that have never communicated with the outside world. In the same way, there are places in the Amazon forests that people in the outside world have never set foot or explored.

Should You Get Vaccinated When Traveling to the Amazon Forests?

You will travel to countries where the Amazon forests are located, the subject of vaccination is really important. Unfortunately, thousands of people die every year in South America due to some diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. Vaccines such as yellow fever, hepatitis A, B, typhoid must be made. Because no matter how well you wear it, some mosquitoes can even bite your pants.

Amazon Jungle Places to Visit

Brazilian Amazon – Manaus

Brazil is the country that contains more than half of the Amazon jungle. This is the first and most convenient option for seeing the rainforest. The city of Manaus, located in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, is the largest city and capital of this region. If we consider it in terms of budget, I think Manaus would be the most suitable place.

Peruvian Amazons

Peru is one of the most ideal countries for a trip to the Amazon jungle. The reason for going to Peru, which is surrounded by the Amazon on the east, does not have to be just a trip to the Amazon. Because Peru, especially Machu Picchu, one of the new 7 wonders of the world, has magnificent places that attract all world travelers. There are two most preferred center points for the Peruvian Amazons. The cities of Iquitos in the north and Puerto Maldonado in the south.

Colombian Amazons
Rainforests in Colombia boast two of the most popular tourist destinations:
Puerto Narino
The city of Leticia and the town of Puerto Narino are very close to each other. Leticia is at the southernmost tip of Colombia, where the borders of Brazil, Peru and Colombia meet. Puerto Narino is further west, about a two-hour boat ride from here.

As it turns out, most of the Amazon rainforest is located in the Brazilian, Peruvian and Colombian Amazons. You must see this exciting and little-explored world.


How to get to Leticia?

You can get here by ships from cities on the Amazon River, especially from Peru-Iquitos and Brazil-Manaus. There is also an airport in the city. There are frequent flights from Colombia to Bogota, Cali and Medellin. You can also find flights from Peru on certain days of the week. Leticia’s adjoining neighbor is the Brazilian city of Tabatinga. You can travel between these two cities without a border crossing. But the Brazilian cut is expensive. Leticia is a better option for accommodation. In Leticia and Puerto Narino, as in other Amazon regions, there are daily or overnight Amazon Tours. There are piranha hunting, (show) local visits, walking paths. Leticia is one of the three most popular cities for Amazon travel, after Manaus in Brazil and Iquitos in Peru.

As it turns out, most of the Amazon rainforest is located in the Brazilian, Peruvian and Colombian Amazons. You must see this exciting and little-explored world.
