Puno is the small city right beside the famous Titicaca Lake. Known as the highest navigable lake in the world, it is located in the South of Peru at 3856 meters. The territory of the huge lake is shared with Peru’s neighbor Bolivia.
Reaching Puno, you will directly feel its magic: The beautiful scenery directly at the big lake will take your breath away! See the sunrise and sunset over the small town from one of the observation platforms, and then start your journey to the fantastic Uros Islands which are only 35 minutes away from Puno.
The Uros Islands are floating in the big sea, as they are made completely out of reed. The inhabitants preserve their old traditions and costumes, which gives them an even more authentic look.
Another hour by boat from Puno, there are the islands Amantani and Taquile. Visitors are especially impressed by the beautiful scenery for sunset and sunrise. Here as well, the inhabitants are dressed in their typical clothing and speaking what is Peru’s oldest language Quechua.
