Located in eastern Peru on the high plateau or ‘Altiplano’, are the shores of Lake Titicaca, close to the Bolivian border. The Altiplano has an average altitude of 4,000 metres, which makes the lake, at a size of 8,300 sq km, the highest navigable lake in the world. The small town of Puno is full of Peruvian character, with narrow dusty streets and a colourful market.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN LAKE TITICACA

UROS ISLANDS

Known as the ‘floating islands of Uros’, a 20 minute boat from Puno, these islands are made up of ‘tortora’ reeds and are livelihood of the people who live there, as they use them to build their homes, boats and their islands.

SILLUSTANI

This archaeological site is between Puno and the Juliaca airport. Best known for its ‘chullpas’ or round burial towers, built of stone with some as high as 12 metres. Its location is stunning, sitting on a hill surrounded by Lake Umayo

TAQUILE ISLAND

The best known of the lakes islands, due to its uniqueness. Although located in an Aymara (people and language) region, the inhabitants speak Quechua. In addition they wear distinctive black and white outfits covered with a colourful woven sash.
