Legendary boiling river turns out to be real

Recommended Posts

UM-Bot

Geoscientist Andres Ruzo first heard about the river as a child and spent years trying to locate it.

The idea of an entire river filled with boiling water might seem preposterous, but for Andres Ruzo, a geoscientist whose grandfather had told him stories about the river when he was only twelve years old, the legend would go on to spark a lifelong interest culminating in a remarkable discovery.

A sterilized boiling river sure seems like a great place to put a village if you can keep the kids from playing near it. There's probably ancient bathtubs and fossilized corn cobs to be dug up.

Kind of odd that they did this in the report:

"At 82m wide, 20ft deep and stretching for over four miles"... Why did they mix metric and English measurements in the same description?...

This has been fixed - the sentence should read "At 82ft wide, 20ft deep and stretching for over four miles"

Germs? Its boiling what do you mean spread germs around. There are lots of boiling hotsprings around here this is just unique because it is a big boiling river.

From the article :

Since Ruzo first visited Mayantuyacu in 2011, the surrounding forest has been decimated by illegal logging. If action isn’t taken, the site—held sacred by generations of Asháninka cultural practitioners—could soon vanish.

Destruction never stops unfortunately. Awesome finding, that place is beautiful.

I wonder if it has any interesting properties due to it's location. I'm sure samples were taken and tested, would be cool if something was found in the water itself.

Good on him. That's dedication.

This is for post #5 depending on the location as to the latitude and longitude some locations that are not found yet but are there the humans that live there would be infected by germs and then another race and culture will be wiped out there are some now that are very few but I guess it is human nature at what rate will those humans will be gone untouched areas

They should have had the Boston Tea Party here instead. It wouldn't have the same ring to it though
