The Sierra del Divisor region along the Peru-Brazil Border in the heart of the Amazon Basin, constitutes the world’s newest National Park, formed on November 8, 2015. It stretches from the deepest parts of the Amazon rainforest and into the foothills of the Andes Mountain range, forming one of the largest contiguous blocks of protected land in Latin America. The National Park encompasses a massive 1.3 million hectares —larger than Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks combined.

Sierra del Divisor’s landscape is characterized by rugged geography and lowland volcanic mountains, the only such region in the Amazon, which is essentially very flat. The dramatic landscape is made up of waterfalls, dormant volcanic cones, wild rivers, remote lakes, jagged canyons and lush rainforest. The most striking feature of this region is “El Cono”, a dormant volcanic cone, and one of many scattered along the southern end of the mountain range. El Cono rises more than 1,600 feet above the plains of the Amazon rainforest surrounding it and is the symbol of Sierra del Divisor.
