Marañón River

The Marañón River originates at the confluence of Nupe and Lauricocha Rivers, near the town of Rondos, at 5,800 m of altitude in the Andes Range, Peru. With a course of 1,100 miles, it ends at a point where it flows into the Ucayali River, to become the Amazon, in the tropical jungle of Peru.
