Chagres Challenge


Description

The Chagres River is virtually unseen in the trek through the Chagres National Park due to the lack of access roads, protection against settlers, and the previous non-existence of Adventures Panama. This part of the river, characterized by currents alternating with backwaters, is considered as Class II, although several rapids are considered Class III by the International Classification of River Navigation.

As a result of dense tropical forest that covers the basin of the river, sedimentation is minimum; therefore, clear water can be expected very often. The flora is typical of the tropical rain forest, with more than three hundred species per hectare. Although it is the natural habitat of big mammals such as tapir and jaguar, tropical rainforest animals, they are very seldom encountered. It is much easier to spot several others samples of the fauna, such as monkeys of the rainforest (spider, howler, whiteface capuchin, Geoffrey's Tamarin), sloth, river otter, iguana, toucan, and plenty of fish.
