The Sierra del Divisor National Park (PNSD) covers territories of the province of Coronel Portillo in the department of Ucayali and of the provinces of Ucayali, Requena and Maynas belonging to the department of Loreto. It has an extension of 1,354,485.10 hectares. This protected natural area seeks to protect the Sierra del Divisor which is a mountainous complex located in the Amazon plain. These mountains have a steep slope and originate a watershed at more than 900 meters above sea level.

The complex of cones and hills of volcanic origin present in the Contamana - Abujao - El Divisor region constitutes the origin of infinity of small basins that drain their waters towards the Ucayali River in Peru and the Yuruá in Brazil. In that country there is a complex of protected natural areas contiguous to the Park, which form a biological corridor of more than three million hectares.

Geologically, it is one of the oldest areas of the Amazon and has spectacular and inaccessible landscapes. At the same time, the Sierra del Divisor National Park presents little intervened areas with a high degree of conservation that encompass ecosystems and biological communities of endemic flora and fauna species and of restricted distribution, which makes it an area of ​​great importance. Likewise, it has numerous waterfalls, hot springs and macaw clay licks, of great beauty and attractiveness.

The unique geographical situation of the PNSD with its isolated mountains has generated many endemisms, that is, in the area there are species that only exist in that place. Only in the Sierra del Divisor inhabits the "bird of the divisorius" (Thamnophilus divisorius), also known as the Acre anthill, referring to the neighboring Brazilian region where it was first recorded in 2004. Later this bird was found in Peru .

Travelers who are considering to explore Sierra del Divisor, know that this is a rarely explored jungle area like few others, mountainous and challenging. The beauty of this territory which makes it unique among the others, is that it has mountainous jungle, waterfalls, caves, springs of which many of them with thermal and medicinal volcanic waters due to their high content of natural minerals.
