The Highest Navigable Lake in the World & Frontier to Bolivia

Lake Titicaca sits on the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes, and it is also the sacred place of the Incas and home to a number of natural and artificial islands. The most famous of these is the Uros floating Islands. Uros is a community of pre-Incan people who live on forty two self-fashioned floating islands made from reeds. You can visit them and see their fascinating way of life on a boat trip from the city of Puno.

The purpose of the island settlements was originally defensive, and if a threat arose they could be moved. It is believed that the Uros were one of the first ethnic groups populating the Andean region. These people were simple fisherman and bird hunters and preferred to remain isolated from the more advances civilisations.

The Area

When it comes to Lake Titicaca hotels most of our options are on the banks of the lake outside the city of Puno. Puno is a fairly simple city and not particularly attractive. You will find some restaurants and shops to explore but if it’s the lake you have come to see we recommend staying on it shores and admiring the beautiful view!

Best Time To Go

It is possible to visit Lake Titicaca all year round. Generally the climate is semi dry and cool. There is a rainy season from December to March but many people still choose to visit during this time.
