The Amazon Basin Sights

Lago Valencia

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Fodor's Review

Located near Peru's border with Bolivia, across the Madre de Dios River from the Tambopata Reserve, is the oxbow lake of Lago Valencia. It is much bigger than Lago Sandoval, but has less wildlife and a small community on one end of it. It's a good spot for fishing and bird watching, but because it is so far away, few lodges offer tours to it.
