Amazing. A "Must Do"

Superb visit to the Uros, with home-made snacks, handicraft demonstrations, and a short ride in a native craft. Well organised and executed.

This lake has been well maintained, and while it isn't pristine, it's just beautiful and picturesque, a great destination. If you're in Puno, the Kuntur Wasi viewpoint is a great spot to see it from, we were warned against going as people have been robbed there, but we saw nor perceived any problems/threats.

An amazing place. If you have time take a 2 day cruise and stay over on one of the islands. The scenery is fantastic.

They are all very friendly and we.coming. It is amazing to see how these people survive and care for the environment especially in our fast paced modern world. The temperature... More

The highest navigable lake in the world is certainly a must visit. The lake and its surroundings are very serene. Boast trips are very popular with tourists.

Of course you can't go to Peru without visiting Lake Titicaca! Wonderful trip including visits to Taquile and an Uros Island.

The long drive from Cusco up to Puno over the dusty barren landscape ends with a spectacular view of what seems to be an endless lake. The best way to access the lake is in Puno where various tours can be arranged depending upon your time schedule. We were fortunate to have mostly calm sunny skies during our visit. At... More

While walking we saw a lot of rubbish floating in the water and on shore as well, as well as graffiti on sculptures and a lack of care for the environment. On the lake, the water... More
