Sitting comfortably between Peru and Bolivia at 12,500 feet in elevation, Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world and is rapidly becoming one of Peru’s most desired destinations. In addition to the breathtaking beauty of the Lake itself, the lakeside community of Puno has developed into a boutique city with rich history and culture.
Accessible by plane, bus, or train from both Lima and Cusco, this is one spot we would recommend if you have an extra two or three days. Some items of interest might include:
- A boat tour of the floating islands of Uros – offshore floating islands made completely of reeds;
- A boat tour to Taquile and or Amantani islands (optional overnight on Taquile available!);
- Access to over 180 ruins and monuments remaining from the Inca civilization.
First Step Expeditions offers a 2-day Lake Experience with the option for a night at the Lodge on Taquile Island or for a Home Stay. Or visit Lake Titicaca as part of one of our many packages. Click below for all the details!
