why the water of river amazon is of muddy colour

    Basically, because it is muddy. Fine-grained mud and silt, suspended in the river water, generally have that light brownish color.

    It’s actually not a ‘muddy’ color – the water is stained by tannins. Leaf litter and submerged trees release tannins into the water gradually. The Amazon has blackwater regions, which are particularly tea-colored; some parts of the Amazon are fairly clear, though.
