TOP Destinations: Puno & Lake Titicaca
time to move on from the Sacred Valley to Lake Titicaca, which at 3.800m is the world's highest navigable lake. To get there we'll pass at La Raya mountain range at 4.335m high, so take a deep breath now!
Titicaca immense body of water, almost 200km long, also hosts the border between Peru and Bolivia. There are more than seventy islands on the lake, the most curious being the Uros floating islands. These islands are made from multiple layers of totora reeds that have to be replaced often as those below in direct contact with water gradually decompose. The structure defies your balance when walking, so imagine what should be like living there.
Also enjoy traditional life at some of its most serene islands like Taquile and Amantaní, with no vehicles or even electricity, where you can regain true appreciation for the simple things of life.
