Day trip to Tiwanaku - Isla Pariti - Lake Titicaca
This day trip gives you the opportunity to see some of Bolivia’s most important archeological sites, and is a perfect day trip to be done from La Paz.
You will be picked up early from your hotel in La Paz, and we will head for Tiwanaku at about 70 km to the West, near the south-eastern shore of Lake Titicaca.
The monumental city Tiwanaku with the remains of the Pre-Incan civilization is truly beautiful and is an UNESCO world heritage site. Your guide will show you around the Tiwanaku site and you will have the chance to have a look at the handmade things such as crafts and clothes, that indigenous women are selling.
We will also visit the pottery museum.
After our visit to the Pre-Columbian archeological site of Tiwanaku we move on to the lakeside village of Huatajata, where we will enjoy a typical lunch. Afterwards we will take off in a local fisherman’s boat to Isla Pariti, a tiny island in the middle of Lake Titicaca, that was untouched for centuries, and where extraordinary ceramics where found during excavations in the 1930’s. We will have a tour of the island and visit the community museum with its beautiful ceramics collection.
We head back to the mainland at 4:00pm and then drive back to La Paz, where we will arrive at the end of the afternoon. At this time, the sun sets while casting its final rays on Illimani, the sacred mountain of La Paz. A beautiful way to end a fascinating day-trip!
