Reserva Nacional Allpahuayo Mishana

Reserva Nacional Allpahuayo Mishana Review

Around Iquitos there are large tracts of virgin rain forest and several reserves worth visiting. Allpahuayo Mishana is the easiest protected area to get to, just 25 km (15 mi) southwest of Iquitos by road. One of the country's smallest and newest reserves, it is not a great place to see large animals, but it is an excellent destination for bird watchers. Scientists have identified 475 bird species in the reserve, including such avian rarities as the pompadour cotinga and Zimmer's antbird. It is also home to several endangered monkey species.
