LAKE TITICACA (1 DAY) - Peru

FULL PACKAGES DETAILS

Location: Uros - Taquile
Starting / Ending Point: Bus terminal or hotel in Puno
Lake Titicaca is undeniably an impressive sight. A National Reserve since 1978, it boasts over sixty varieties of birds, fourteen species of native fish and eighteen types of amphibians. At 3820m (12,530ft), it is the highest navigable lake in the world. At over 170km (105mi) long, it is also the largest lake in South America. Its altitude means the air is unusually clear and the azure waters particularly striking. Interesting boat trips to outlying islands can be made from Puno, the major port on the lake. The area is also known for its folk dances and huge herds of alpacas and llamas.

 Curious Inca-built Chullpa burial tombs circle the lake and the man-made Uros Floating Islands are fascinating. These islands have been inhabited for centuries since their construction by retreating Uros Indians. More powerful and self-determined are the communities who live on the islands of Taquile and Amantani. These islands are often described as the closest one can get to heaven by the few travelers who make it out this far into the lake. There are in fact more than seventy islands in the lake, the largest and most sacred being the Island of the Sun (Isla del Sol) which is on the Bolivian side of the Lake.

ITINERARY *
We will leave from the port at 7 a.m., after travelling for 25 minutes we will arrive at the floating island of Uros. Here there will be a 1 hour guided tour. After the tour we will continue in the same boat to the island Taquile. Once we arrive we will walk uphill for 1 hour in order to visit the town, the artisan market, the museum, and to eat lunch at a local restaurant. On the way back, we will walk down the opposite side of the mountain and return to Puno in the same boat, where you will be transferred to your hotel.

* the exact program, is subject to change, due to weather, the client’s walking ability, and other unexpected circumstances.
