The Amazon Jungle: Tambopata National Reserve & Lake Sandoval

October 1, 2012 2 comments

This is my second post in a series on my recent trip to Peru. In my first post, I talked about hiking Huayna Picchu at Machu Picchu. Stay tuned for thoughts on Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Lima, and more.

When my girlfriend and I were planning our trip to Peru, we had a big decision to make: Spend our final three days at Lake Titicaca or spend them in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. We chose the latter.

Why? We thought it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the reviews of the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion lodge were stellar. I’m hoping to go into more detail about the wonderful lodge, its employees and our other excursions in the Amazon in another post. But for now, I wanted to detail our experiences on a day-hike inside Tambopata National Reserve to Lake Sandoval.
