Río Abiseo National Park
was established on August 11, 1983 through Law (D.S.) N 064-83-AG. In 1990 was declared as a Cultural and Natural Heritage of Mankind by UNESCO.

This park is located in the department of San Martín, province Mariscal Caceres, district of Hurcungo and has a surface of 274,520 hectares.

There are seven life zones at this park, going from 350 m.a.s.l. to 4,200 m.a.s.l., with very varied flora and fauna. The foggy forests have a very rich variety of plants behind the tropical and humid forests. Local flora includes orchids, brakens, canes and mosses.

Local fauna includes mammals such as the mono choro de cola amarilla (Lago thrix flavicauda), picuro de montaña (Agouti tazzanowskii), Taruca (Hippocamelus antisemsis), spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus), jaguar (Panthera onca), and the maquisapa monkey(Ateles belzebuth).

Rio Abiseo National Park also is home for several types of birds such as the paujil (Crax salvini), the jungle condor (Sarcoramphus popa), the yellow head parrot (Amazona ochrocephala) and the wild duck (Netta erythrophthalma).

At this park, there has been registered 36 archaeological sites, including Gran Pajaten, considered as the most impressive monumental complex compared only to the Tikal National Park in Guatemala.

Main goal of the park is to protect the foggy forests and to preserve the existence of the mono choro de cola amarilla (yellow tall monkey).
