Lago Sandoval, Puerto Maldonado
(4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Trek around Lago Sandoval, surrounded by thick rainforest and offering access to one of the most popular hiking routes in the area.

You can also take a boat out onto the lake to see the forest attractively curled around the large expanse of water, with tree reflections in the mirror-like surface making for excellent photographs.

  • The hike was interesting, I expected a little more from the place. Fatigue has been felt for the 4 km walk on a wooded path but especially in being on a boat in the Sun overlooking the Lake to the other side. The highlight was definitely crossing the jungle by boat and otters that were feasting on noisily and really fun in the middle of the Lake. Unfortunately on the way back we were eaten by mosquitos despite we brought long pants and long-sleeved shirts with autan sprayed more volte...ma to us is way better than those who were in t-shirts and shorts. The Council then: bring a hat, sunscreen and plenty of autan!

  • We visited the Lake Sandoval with the Agency short Maltese Amazon. We wake up very early to get to the Lake antea too hot to do. We agreed with our guide boat from the port and the views were spectacular. We could see from different types of trees and plants to animals such as birds, herons, otters, butterflies of all colors and even an alligator by far! I was heard only the sound of water and nature. That Yes, bring lots of sunscreen, hat and mosquito repellent! The Sun does not forgive!
