The highest heights ranging between 700 and 800 meters. They correspond to the Chongón and Colonche mountain ranges.

Hydrography Napo Province

The hydrographic system of the province of Napo is born in the Cordillera Oriental de los Andes, where the rivers that feed the most important basin of the province, that of the Napo River, flow. The Napo river basin is formed by the union of the Anzu and Jatunyacu rivers, a short distance from Puerto Napo, the Jatunyacu receives the waters of the green yacu that originates from the vicious valley rivers that collects the waters of the eastern moorlands of the Cotopaxi and the Antisana that originates in the thaws of the Antisana, Other tributaries of the Jatunyacu are the Chalupas river that is born in the southern moors of the Quilindaña and Chalupas to the north-west of the Tena Canton, and the Mulatos river that delivers the waters of the moors and mountains of the Llanganates.

The Anzu is born in the southern eastern foothills of the Llanganates, near the Pastaza basin. The Napo River is navigable from its source to its mouth in the Amazon. The Napo River receives the waters of the Misahualli, Pusuno, Suno, Payamino River well known for its gold wealth and that is born in the Sugar Loaf, Napo is located in the north central part of the Amazon Region, it extends over the north eastern plain east to the south-east, formed by an important hydrographic network represented by the Napo River, which is born in the Llanganates mountain range with the name of jatunyaku on its way it joins small and other important rivers such as the Anzu, Misahualli and Arajuno, is the main waterway and tributary of the Amazon.

Climate Napo Province

In order to characterize the climate in the Province, information has been obtained from the studies carried out by IDEA. 1988 and the Gran Sumaco Project (INEFAN. 1993). In general terms, the climate varies according to the diversity of geoforms present, each of which exhibits very particular conditions, although the entire study area, due to the exuberant and highly developed flora, which determines a high percentage of relative humidity and that, added to the humidity coming from the Amazonian belt carried by trade winds, large volumes of rain precipitate that exceed 5000 mm. Most of the area is subject to a large excess of annual rainfall, up to four times above the evapotranspiration capacity, which results in high runoff. These conditions prevail throughout most of the year.

Flora Napo Province

It has lush vegetation, which is why it contains the largest forest reserve, with a variety of plant species such as pumamaqui, myrtle, bulrush, yagual, palm, licopodio, gentian, achupalla, pajonal, cedar, chuncho, ceibo, garango, mahogany , chontaduro, tagua, olive tree, various types of orchids, bromeliads, anthuriums, frailejón and heliconias.

Fauna Province of Napo

The Spectacled Bear, deer, cervicabra, macho monkey, kid, danta or tapir, jaguar, tigrillo, puma, porcupine, guanta, anteater and others are its greatest wealth.

Orography Province of Napo

In the western limit that shares with the provinces of Tungurahua, Cotopaxi and Pichincha, mountains such as Cerro Hermoso in the Llanganates mountain range, Sincholagua, Cotopaxi, Antisana, Saraurco etc. rise from south to north. In this border strip there are also hundreds of lagoons, many of them unknown. In the section of the third mountain range the Sumaco, Pan de Azúcar, Cerro Negro and Reventador rise; Macaws that have an east-west direction favor the formation of three river basins.

Economic development Napo Province

The main economic activities of the region are the exploration, exploitation, processing and transportation of hydrocarbons and agricultural and forestry production. In recent years new crops have displaced some traditional ones. Oil has been a determining factor for regional development, due to infrastructure construction, job creation and annual investment volume. The production of hydrocarbons represents a very important proportion of Napo's GDP and a substantial part of the foreign exchange income. After oil, the most important activity is agriculture and forestry, mainly by the people they employ. Other important sectors are construction, commerce, services and tourism.

In addition to oil and agriculture, the most important sectors are commerce and services. State institutions serve public services and generate employment. Commercial activity is very active, especially at the border and in the production centers. Mining, excluding the production of hydrocarbons, does not have much economic importance, there is only on a small scale the exploitation of gold, limestone and marble. Tourism has significant point developments such as the La Cocha lagoon, and the floating hotel on the Napo River.

The Industrial sector shows very little progress in the region due to the absence of adequate infrastructure and basic services, as well as the marginalization of the consumption centers of the two countries. However, with the improvement in communications, electrification, the increase in agricultural and forestry activity, an environment conducive to industrial development would be created, especially through agro-industries and the existing mining potential.

Maito de Tilapia or Carachama: They are fish from the area that for traditional preparation are wrapped in leaves, tied and hoes, you can also prepare the manta of guanta, palm, all the ingredients are from the Amazon, a different flavor and Unique that delights tourists.

Review Information

Galapagos Islands

Extraordinary flora and fauna, a place you must visit...!

Galapagos Islands are worldwide known for their wide biodiversity and for being the point from where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution.We present you 5 facts that perhaps you didn't know about the Enchanted Islands.

The term "Enchanted islands" first appeared on a map in 1589.Sailors nicknamed thus to the Galapagos Islands, by referring to these "appeared and disappeared", since due to the sea currents strong, access to the Islands was limited at certain times of the year. The nickname transcended over the years and today is still saying that the Islands are "delighted", but referring now to the great biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The Galapagos marine iguana, is the only species of reptile in the world that has managed to adapt to life under water.

The Islands are named for the giant tortoises that live there (the Galapagos word meaning turtle). This species can reach up to 16 hours a day to sleep and mainly feeds on cacti that grow there.

In keeping with the turtles, originally there were 15 species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos, unfortunately 5 of them are completely extinct, so there are only 10. The main threat of the turtles is the human being, who for years has been dedicated to hunting them for their meat and oil.

The Galapagos Islands were part of the second world war! During this war, the Government of Ecuador allowed the United States Government build a runway with strategic aims in the Islands.When the war ended, the Americans abandoned the place. That track currently serves as the main airport of the Islands, which welcomes the year thousands of passengers.
