There are dozens of dams in the planning for the amazing headwaters of the Amazon: Rios Marañon, Huallaga, Apurimac, Mantaro, Urubamba. In particular Río Marañon has 20 dams planned. I paddled 550 miles of the river last year and found it to be one of the best in the world - a bona fide Grand Canyon of South America!
