Straddling the border with Bolivia, Lake Titicaca at 3900m is the highest navigable lake in the world and one of the iconic highlights of Peruvian tourism. Sacred Lake of the Inca and legendary birthplace of the Sun God himself, Titicaca is arguably the mythological heart of the country and offers a unique insight into the various Pre-Incan indigenous groups who make their home in and around the lake.
From the Peruvian town of Puno, a scruffy town though full of life, daily boat trips head out each day to visit the highlights, namely Taquile, a picturesque island rich in culture, and the famous floating reed islands of Uros. Today, though rather “touristified”, these reed islands reveal a fascinating remnant of the Uros people who took to the water centuries ago creating artificial islands from the local totora plants to escape the all-conquering Inca.
For visitors looking for a more authentic experience away from Puno, homestays are available on several islands such as Amantani.
