Javary River



The Javary River, the boundary between Brazil and Peru, is a Amazon River tributary river. It is supposed to be navigable by canoe for 900 miles above its mouth to its sources among the Ucayali highlands, but only 260 were found suitable for steam navigation. The Brazilian Boundary Commission ascended it in 1866 to the junction of the Shino with its Jaquirana branch. The country it traverses in its extremely sinuous course is very level, similar in character to that of the Jurua.
