DAY 6: Pañacocha: Piranha Lake & Rainforest Adventures
MONDAY: PAÑACOCHA BIOLOGICAL CORRIDOR
We will travel downstream to the Pañayacu River delta, where we will take a canoe trip to Pañacocha Lake (“Piranha Lake” in the native Kichwa), an ecosystem flooded by black-waters. The surrounding protected rainforest is home to primates and birds, and is the perfect habitat for piranhas, paiches (one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world), the white caiman, and hundreds of other aquatic animals. We will participate in nature walks led by local naturalist guides, and relax at a nearby campsite, where we will enjoy an Amazon-style BBQ. After lunch, we will do some kayaking and swimming activities. Back on board the Anakonda, our guests will have the opportunity to attend a lecture and watch an educational documentary about the region.
