Speaking of the mysterious Amazon region, many people believe that there should be mysterious primitive tribes. Don't tell me, "Jilin-1" satellite captured some very special scenes.

The Amazon is on a habitable plain, on a par with China's Yangtze River, but with 500 million people living along the Yangtze, only 20 million live near the Amazon.

This is because the Amazon River is located near the equator, the climate is very hot, and the plain rainforest is a double-edged sword, the high density of the forest let people can not breathe, the river also lives boa, caiman and other ferocious beasts.


In fact, there are no wild men around the Amazon, but there are native tribes, most of them living deep in the Amazon forest, and most of them have lived here for hundreds of years.

The "bullet ant" coming-of-age ceremony and the eating of cremated remains are real customs of local tribes.

In the images taken by the Jilin-1 satellite,You can see the houses of the indigenous tribes along the river and even in the middle of the river.

The houses of such primitive tribes are mostly simple and practical, and the distance between villages is far.



The largest city along the Amazon is Manaus, the capital of Peru's Amazon State, with a population of 1.5 million. Located at 3 degrees south latitude, it is hot and humid all year long and its industries are dominated by metallurgy, electronics and machinery.

There are also large modern cities like Macapa, Iquitos and Belem along the Amazon. The overall natural environment is very suitable for human habitation, but the high temperature is very challenging.
