UCAYALI

  This expedition concentrates on the high and low jungles in the Peruvian Amazon. Day to day we will move further away from civilisation. The remoteness intensifies the contrasts in nature and between the people on our way through Peru 's central jungle. From coastal beaches right up to the Andes , we cross the mountain ranges at 4818 msl ( 15,803 ft ) before descending to the high jungle at 800 msl ( 2,624 ft ) then further down to the low jungle at 200msl ( 656 ft ). We stay in the low jungle until we reach the Peruvian Amazon's second largest town Pucallpa . We will stay and live together with two ethnic Amazon Indian tribes - the Ashaninka and the Shipibo.
