Lake Titicaca Tour and Experiences
Lake Titicaca–In Andean belief, Titicaca is the birthplace of the sun. In addition, it’s the largest lake in South America and the highest navigable body of water in the world. Banner blue skies contrast with bitterly cold nights. Enthralling and in many ways singular, the shimmering deep blue Lake Titicaca is the longtime home of highland cultures steeped in the old ways.
Pre-Inca Pukara, Tiwanaku and Collas all left a mark on the landscape. Today the region is a mix of crumbling cathedrals, desolate altiplano and checkerboard fields backed by rolling hills and high Andean peaks. In this world, crops are still planted and harvested by hand. Campesinos (peasants) wear sandals recycled from truck tires, women work in petticoats and bowler hats, and llamas are tame as pets. The Uros Floating Islands — where Andean communities consisting of just a few families construct tiny islands out of totora reeds. It might at first appear austere, but ancient holidays are marked with riotous celebrations where elaborately costumed processions and brass bands start a frenzy that lasts for days.
Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world with extraordinary scenery wherever one looks. There are many islands in the lake some of them are larger and other smaller and all of them are inhabited by local Aymara people and each of which has its own unique history. This is a place of rich history and traditions. The lake is the legendary Inca creation site and is the birthplace of the sun in Incan mythology. It was here that the bearded white god Viracocha and the first Incas, Manco Capac and his sister-wife Mama Huaca (or Mama Ocllo), made their mystical appearances, later they moved toward the north to the valley of Cusco where the founded the Inca empire. Lake Titicaca Private Tours are perfect tours to experience all the treasure about this great lake.
