In January 2017, we ran the main section of the Río Marañon in Peru. We had two guides from Sierra Rios who helped our group of 11 navigate the huge rapids through this beautiful canyon. Many proposed dams threaten the river, which is currently a free-flowing source to the Amazon river.

The Peruvian Amazon basin is a high risk malaria area. More than half of the reported 64,000 malaria cases in Peru in 2007 occurred in this region. The nets were distributed in a number of villages along the Upper Maranon River and its tributaries, including the villages of Napuruka, Sachapapa, Athulapa, Palestina, Belen, Ajachim, Chapis, Borja and Jerusalen, to achieve blanket coverage of all sleeping spaces. Malaria education and correct net usage were an important part of the distribution process.
National geographic - Amazon River Documnetary - BBC wildlife animal documentary The Amazon River (US /ˈæməzɒn/ or UK /ˈæməzən/; Spanish and Portuguese: Amazonas) in South America is the largest river by discharge of water in the world, and either the second or first in length. Although the Amazon's most distant source has been accepted for nearly a century as the headwaters of the Apurímac river on Nevado Mismi, a 2014 study indicates that the Amazon's most distant source is on the Cordillera Rumi Cruz at the headwaters of the Mantaro river in Peru. The Mantaro and Apurímac confluence, and with other tributaries form the Ucayali, which in turn confluences with the River Marañón upstream of Iquitos, Peru, to form what countries other than Brazil consider to be the main stem of the A...
Wasson’s Landslide Rapid is named after John Wasson who led an exploratory trip down the Rio Marañon in July and August of 1977. Wasson's Landslide greeted us on day #9 of our whitewater journey down the Rio Marañon of Peru. The entry/upper section, a good long Class 4 with hydraulics, waves and boulders, we chose to break into two segments as to not spread our safety kayakers and on shore safety to thin. We then proceeded to line the rafts down the right shore of the unrunnable section which I believe is know as "The Junk Yard". The rafts were then rowed out the final Class 4 section and we were all "alive below Wasson's". Our scout for Wasson's started at 6:53 AM and the last raft completed the exit at 2:38 PM, 7 1/2 hours, Pedro said that was almost a record. Visit brittrunyon.com/ . W...
slow boat Yurimaguas to Iquitoss The Amazon River, usually abbreviated to Amazon , in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world and according to some authors, the longest in length. The headwaters of the Apurímac River on Nevado Mismi had been considered for nearly a century as the Amazon’s most distant source, until a 2014 study found it to be the Cordillera Rumi Cruz at the headwaters of the Mantaro River in Peru.The Mantaro and Apurímac confluence, and with other tributaries form the Ucayali River, which in turn confluences with the Marañón River upstream of Iquitos, Peru, to form what countries other than Brazil consider to be the main stem of the Amazon. Brazilians call this section the Solimões River above its confluence with the Rio Negro to fo...
