Ucayali

Its name comes from the Imiría, a floating plant with a reddish yellow flower which, along with lotuses and putuputo plants, covers a large part of the shores during flood seasons. Produced by tectonic processes, the lake features aquatic plants that form floating islands moved by the wind, creating beautiful changing landscapes. Ideal for fishing and canoe and boat trips. There are numerous entrances into the earth known as «undercurrents». Various mestizo and native communities from the Shipibo-Conibo ethnic group have settled on the shores, the most interesting being Junín Pablo and Caimito.
