Conquistadors searching for gold in the Amazon returned with tales of poisoned waters, man-eating snakes, and a river of boiling water. The Boiling River was long thought to be a Peruvian myth until a geothermal scientist tracked it down in 2011. Even though it's hundreds of miles from the nearest volcano, it is indeed boiling and is deadly for anyone or anything hapless enough to fall in. Considered sacred and linked to powerful jungle spirits, shamans are normally the only ones who approach it.
