This was the highlight of our trip to Perou!!! It exactly how we imagined a beautiful place at the end of the world but in reality it is where the world started...

Great scenery and many islands to visit, but also a nice place to simply relax and take in the view.

Attractive high altitude lake. Floating islands unique and interesting. Not much pressure to purchase items from residents. We enjoyed buying a ride in their hand made boats.

Well worth the journey from Cusco but would like to have spent longer eg overnight stays, rather than just island hopping on a day trip , although our trip was a particularly good one with no other groups in sight.

The lake is clean and completely unpolluted with wildlife. The islands were interesting culturally unique. One of the best things in Peru.

Its a lake or is a sea? The deepest blue you can imagine in the middle of the Andes. Be prepared to the high and take as many time you need to appreciate the beauty

We hired a boatman to take us slowly through the reeds looking for birds. There were lots of herons ,ducks, rails ,flamingos,etc and a spectacular tiny bird appropriately called the "many coloured brush tyrant" which was very common and approachable. Afterwards the boatman took us to his home on a floating reed island, which was fascinating.

The lake is beautiful but high and chilly. Take layers for the boats and strip them down as you warm up. Beware the sun is very strong.
