It's reputed to be the highest navigable lake in the world because of its boat traffic. There's pre-Columbian cultures that lived here many centuries ago. Incas were here. There are descendants here now of those ancient peoples. Some inhabitants here now live on the lake on their man-made islands, which are constructed of reeds or sedge. Boats are made of reeds. The residents of these islands sustain themselves in part by fishing. So interesting. There are also natural islands, some inhabited, on the lake.

Beautiful large lake. Great place to get away from La Paz for the weekend. I would always recommend a quick boat ride!

A beautiful lake that is elevates at 4000m. A bit commercialised now but nonetheless a must visit when in Bolivia or Peru.

The lake is so blue that one will be surprised. We had a cruise trip. Enjoyed the lake Titikaka under which Inca temples are merged . We had nearly 5 h stay on cruise and enjoyed its last bite. It is the most sacred Lake in Latin America which was worshiped by Pre Inca Tiwanaku and Inca people. Life time experience for anyone.

We visited Lake Titicaca on Peruvian and Bolivian sides. Both are equally beautiful and breath taking. If spending a night in Puno, be sure to wake up early for sun rise.

The lake is big and it takes courage to cross it in windy weather. When we crossed it tourist's faces were white from fear and absolute silence was on the boat.

It’s the highest lake in the world (3800 meter high). but the water is smelly (at de the copacabana side) and the lake doesn’t look attractive.

We took a small boat on Lake Titicaca to Isla de Sol. Wonderful trip from Copacabana. The water is so clear and fresh. Beautiful colours and numerous islands along our route.

This is a big lake, and I don’t have a bad word to say about it. It’s pretty. It’s pretty big. Affords some very nice views from Copacabana. Shame about the interloping trout (though they are tasty).

This is an amazing trip! Our driver organized snacks, lunch and oxygen bottles! The views are incredible, and the drive to the Lake exceptional. I highly recommend it!
