The Shanay-Timpishka, also known as La Bomba, is a tributary of the Amazon River, called the "only boiling river in the world".[1][2] It is 6.4 km long. It is known for the very high temperature of its waters—from 45°C to nearly 100°C. The name means 'boiled by the heat of the sun', though the source of the heat is likely geothermal.

The river is located in the Mayantuyacu sanctuary, part of the Huánuco high forest. The area is inhabited by an Asháninka community.[2]

Andrés Ruzo, a geothermal scientist, has investigated the source of the heat.[3]
