Overview

The Titicaca Lake is the highest navigable lake in the world (3856 m.a.s.l.). Its shores and islands, such as Amantani and Taquile, are home to the Aymaras and Quechuas, who are amongst Perus oldest people, predating the Incas by a thousand years. Here, visitors may wander through old traditional villages where Spanish is a second language and where ancient myths and beliefs still hold true. Located very close to Puno, we can find the famous floating Uros Islands whose inhabitants preserve their traditions and costumes on their handmade reed floating villages.
