Islas Ballestas ( Ballestas Islands) These spectacular islands, eroded into many caves and arches, provide shelter for thousands of seabirds and hundreds of sea - lions . The continual droppings from 150 bird species such as cormorants, Humboldt penguins, boobies and pelicans brought to the development of a profitable extraction industry that exports guano throughout the world for use as fertilizer . The Peruvian Guano is considered very good due to the special weather and ocean currents. Peru Travel & Tours Pictures & Photos, Ballestas Islands
After 3 km of walking, we got to Lake Sandoval. The walk in the rain forest is hard – it is very hot, humid, there is not enough oxygen to breath, not enough water to drink. These were definitely the longest 3 km in my life ! But then, we got to this lake ! Paradise ! It was so peaceful that I even forgot we had to go back another 3 km !
