Go around the lake on a boat, you can see plenty of wild life. If you go at night you need to be very quite

Amazing

Nice freshwater lake near Tambopata river. A boat ride, a small hike and then onto a catamaran type raft
You can apparently swim in it and I would have if I knew.
But be reminded that the Piranha fish is omnipresent.

Lago Tres Chimbadas has a wealth of wildlife to view--if you're lucky. Creatures are wild. We know that, so don't expect them to show themselves as if they were part of a ride at Disneyland. By leaving just before dawn from our lodge, Pasadas Amazonas, we were fortunate to see many birds, especially the hoazin (say watson), calling, flying, snacking, preening. The snakebird and others I cannot name shared their habitat with us as we floated by on a raft, pushed by a tall pole by our capable skipper. The stillness of the early morning was electric. One other raft shared the lake with us, but no one spoke a word. We hoped to see the giant river otters and waited, catching and releasing piranha in the meantime. Our guide Donnell explained that National Geographic Wild got it wrong (horrors!!). Piranha are not the voracious eating-machines they are portrayed to be--unless they are captured and deprived from food for a week. Then yes, they will strip a cow. The ones we caught were little and not at all intimidating, although our guide demonstrated that their teeth would make quick work of a leaf he held. Mostly, piranha eat seeds from the overhanging trees. Alas, the otters did not appear for us and we headed home, blissed out with the stillness and beauty of the lake.

A lot of rainforest animals in this area. Howler monkeys, caiman, river otters, macaws, piranha, turtles, lizards, jaguars, capybara, and more, more, more. Put it's also very peaceful. Just a great spot.

Bring your camera or smart phone camera as there is plenty to see here! Early start to the day, but well worth it to see the flora and fauna! Even though the river otters are the main attraction, there are black caimans and piranhas--seen but not caught! The sun is intense, so use plenty of sunscreen and do not forget to apply Deet repellant.

Pirahna, Otters, and Monkeys!
Jun 2018 • Family
We went fishing for pirahna and caught a bunch. Some of the brave members of our group jumped in the lake and had a nice swim. We saw stinky birds and troops of monkeys in the trees. One one side of the lake, there was a lively family of giant river otters. Our guides, Josleen and Seelma from Inotawa, were terrific.

A chance to see caimans, piranhas, river otters and more
May 2018 • Couples
We traveled to the lake early in the morning and immediately spotted several caimans, and were fortunate to see river otters who were on a swimming spree. We fished (catch and release) for piranhas, and enjoyed many birds nesting and squawking across the lake.
