LAKE TITICACA | BOLIVIA

Why Visit the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca?

"It is believed that the Incas were born in Bolivian Lake Titicaca. These islands are home to Isla Del Sol and Isla De Luna, which contain more than one hundred fifty ancient settlements."

One of Bolivia's most popular attractions is Lake Titicaca. The Bolivian side is often deemed more beautiful than that of Peru, and the ever-present Cordillera Real creates stunning views of the lake. Lake Titicaca can be found just 72 kms (45 miles), from La Paz, the capital. Lake Titicaca covers 8,300 kilometres (3.204 sq mi) and is 3,812 metres (12.506 feet) above the sea level. It was home to the ancient Tiwanaku culture. The land was inhabited by the Quechua, Aymara, and their rich, centuries-old folk traditions after the mysterious disappearances of the Tiwanaku.

You can see tranquil sapphire, golden islands and floating reed islands that are inhabited by Uros people from the Bolivian side.
