Titicaca Route of the Sun (03 Days / 02 Nights)

This program unites two Andean peoples, with much history and tradition.

The excursion starts in the city of Cusco ( 3,339 m .a.s.l.), traveling on a comfortable panoramic bus, on an asphalted road, towards the city of Puno ( 3,810 m .a.s.l.). On the way, we’ll visit Andahaylillas´ Church ( America ’s Sistine Chapel), the Incan Archaeological Complex of Raqchi and Pucara’s famous church.

In Puno, Lake Titicaca , the Peruvian and Bolivian High Plateaus´ jewel, is waiting for us. It is the world’s highest navigable lake which is situated at an altitude of 3,800 m .a.s.l., and possesses many islands inhabited by native Quechua and Aymara populations.

It is an ecosystem that contains a rich and varied bird population, and there, are the Floating Islands of the Uros; one of América’s most ancient peoples. Further along, the Amantaní and Taquile islands, of great ethnic and cultural value, await us with their pre-Incan and Incan archaeological sites. Their inhabitants mainly dedicate themselves to handicraft, fishing and agriculture, and their textile art is very much appreciated.
