Amazon River, Brazil

Latitude and longitude coordinates are: -2.163106, -55.126648.

An extremely long and beautiful river, the Amazon River is situated in the northern part of Brazil. It is considered to be one of the longest and the largest by the amount of water volume carried by the river. It is named after the Amazone female warrior community which is believed to be living there many years ago. The river basin is the largest one on the planet, with a large number of small and large tributaries joining the rive along its course from the high Andes of Peru. It is not easy to figure out where the direct source of the Amazon River located as in its very beginning the river consists of a few small creeks. The point where 3 Peruvian rivers, the Mantaro, the Maranon, and the Apurimac, meet is considered to be the start of the Amazon River.

The location of the river is closely linked to the beautiful tropical forests of the Amazon region, as well as numerous ecology problems connected with the area. Logging and deforestation are considered to be among the most dangerous things damaging the eco-situation on earth. Another common problem related to the river is a shortage of bridges along its course, which is caused by quite a considerable width of the river. On the other hand, known as 'The Meeting of Waters', the Amazon river provides water to a huge residential area in the northeastern and the northern parts of the country. There are many large cities located on the banks of the river, with the city of Manaus being the largest of those.
