Uros / Suasi (02 Days / 01 Night)
Lake Titicaca; the jewel of the Peruvian and Bolivian high plateaus, is the world’s highest navigable lake. It is situated in the Region of Puno, on the Peruvian side, at an altitude of 3,800 m .a.s.l. and it possesses many floating islands inhabited by Quechua and Aymara native populations. It is an ecosystem which has a rich and varied fauna mainly composed of birds.
There, are the floating Islands of the Uros, one of América’s most ancient peoples, dedicated to handicraft production, fishing and taxidermy. After a short visit on Taquile Island, we’ll continue our trip towards Suasi Island; one of the lake’s most beautiful and fascinating islands which offers ecological tourism alternatives, such as hikes, to observe the flora and wild bird species, Andean crops, medicinal plant land parcels, walks on the beach and totora boat rides. On the island, there is a well equipped hotel, where we’ll spend the night.
