TOURS AND ROUTES Ecocanal The Gatun Lake area is located on the banks of Chagres River and it was the largest reservoir in the world until 1937. The Gatun Lake river basin is over 1,903 square kilometers long and is made up of sand, limestone, and volcanic rock. Around the Gatun Lake area, we find a system that presents different categories of habitats such as scrublands, thickets, secondary and mature forests, wetlands, crops, grazing grounds, forest plantations and soil without vegetation. Among its most characteristic fauna one can find different species of primates, mammals, birds, and reptiles. Exploring this path allows students and teachers to identify flora and fauna typical inherent of the rainforest.
