Row A Boat to the One-of-a-Kind Lake Sandoval in the Peruvian Amazon

One of the most memorable day trips you can take on a visit to the Peruvian Amazon is to the one-of-a-kind Lake Sandoval, a short hike from the Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the mighty Amazon. My husband and I visited Lake Sandoval during a stay at the amazing Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica ecolodge, which offers luxury accommodations and world-class cuisine deep in the Tambopata National Reserve (http://www.inkaterra.com/en/reserva-amazonica/).

One of the many activities the Inkaterra offers is an easy 1.5-hour hike through the Amazon jungle to a rustic boat dock, where you'll row in a wooden canoe to the fascinating Lake Sandoval. As you navigate through the narrow channels leading to the beautiful oxbow lake, you'll be surrounded by jungle wildlife of all kinds: red howler monkeys, brightly-colored macaws, endangered giant river otters - even anacondas have been spotted at Lake Sandoval! You'll have a relaxing two hours to float on the lake and enjoy its interesting flora and fauna before boating back to the dock for the return hike.

If you're interested in spending an unforgettable few days in the Peruvian Amazon for a jungle experience unlike any other, check out the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica ecolodge. While you're there, make sure to take the half-day excursion to Lake Sandoval, included in the price of your stay.
