Lake Titicaca

Although it is situated at a lofty 3,810 meters (12,500 ft) Lake Titicaca is no longer acknowledged as the world's highest navigable lake. This takes away nothing, however, from the vast body of water and the surrounding breath-taking scenery. Enormous Lake Titicaca stretches almost 10,000 square kilometers within a huge Andean crater on the frontier between Bolivia and Peru, and is a must-see when visiting either country. Lakeside fishing villages, quaint communities, the snow-peaked Cordillera Real and charming Copacabana are obvious highlights in this area of unrivaled natural beauty, a place where truely authentic experiences can be found.

 

Acting as the base for exploration of the Bolivian side of the lake, the town of Copacabana is likely to be first on most travelers itineraries, though undoubtedly it is the islands within the lake that dominate traveler’s attention. Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of uncountable Bolivian legends, and evidence of its great cultural importance can be found in abundance upon both the Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun) and Isla del Luna (Island of the Moon). As well as the cultural draws, the peaceful islands are an ideal places to relax, walk and explore, which is why thousands of tourists, national and international alike, make the trip across these sapphire-blue waters every year.
