floating islands

Visiting the local people who live on man made islands only access by boat. Handicraft work is excellent. Solar is their only source of electricity.

This is a great experience and a lovely place. I recommend booking directly with families rather than through tour agencies as the experience is nicer and the price tends to be cheaper. The families are lovely and very accommodating.

Uros is a fascinating man-made floating island made of reeds. It's quite genius. It's a combination of a simple and difficult life for the hospitable natives. Go with an open mind and no judgements.

This is a magical place where you can soak in the indigenous culture as the natives show you around their home/town. With so little, in comparison to our westernized existence, local folks are genuine happy anf content as the go about their daily tasks. This town not only represents the ingenuity and resourcefulness of humans

The Titikaka lake is beautiful, with its colours, nature, silence, and incredible light. It's worth spending a couple of days, staying at a local family overnight on one of the islands. We went to the Uros floating islands, to Amantani fir the afternoon/night, and to Taquile the following morning, and I strongly recommended this itinerary if you're looking for some... More

I saw a lot of lakes in my country, however this lake has his special charm, the people living in the area, makes this place so georgeous. I think you must do Lake titicaca before visiting Uyuni or going to Cusco. Try Inca lake if you're travelling with your family, they took care of us.

This was an extraordinary trip to an unusual village of people living on a floating island. We learned about how the island was formed and how the inhabitants spend their days living there. Quite different from anything else I have experienced.

Very interesting. We went on a group tour. We took an old wooden powerboat, nostalgic, which added to the adventure. Once we got to the "islands", we all got off . It was like walking on a spongy mattress. The people living there was an extended family group, all ages. Then some of us went on a traditional reed boat... More

Lake Titicaca, at an elevation of 12,507 feet (3,812 meters) in the Andean Altiplano, is the highest large lake in the world. More than 120 miles long and 50 miles wide, it was the center of the Incan civilization, and today straddles the boundary between Peru and Bolivia.
