Gatun Lake in the Panama Canal, one of the biggest artificial lakes of the world

The Gatun Lake is a large artificial lake that forms a major part of the Panama Canal, carrying ships for 33 km of their transit across the Isthmus of Panama. At the time it was created, Gatun Lake was the largest man-made lake in the world. Around the lake there are various resorts that offer boat tours on the lake as well as excursions to islands and the Embera Indians. The exuberant vegetation at Gatun Lake is also a paradise for an abundance of bird species.
