Peurvian Lake Titicaca

Puno is situated on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake. At an altitude of 12,400 ft., this very deep, intensely turquoise lake is 131 miles long. It is shared by Peru and Bolivia. Lake Titicaca is believed to be the legendary birthplace of the founders of the Inca Empire, as well as the cradle of civilization of the Aymara Indians. Puno, with its colorful customs, handicrafts and ethnic dances, is known as the folklore capital of Peru. Many ethnic groups depend upon the lake for their living. Visit the peaceful island of Taquile, 3 .5 hours from Puno by boat, where the local Quechuan residents are still living much as their ancestors did centuries ago. Taquile is known for its distinctive weaving. Another major attraction is the floating reed islands, home of the Uros Indians. The Uros also live much as their ancestors did, building their homes and boats from the totora reeds that grow abundantly along Lake Titicaca.

Includes:

  • All Transfers and Andean Explorer Train from Cuzco to Puno
  • 2 Nights Accommodations
  • Taquile and Uros Island Tour
  • Option to Captain a Traditional Reed Boat
