At an altitude of 3800m and straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. It's electric blue waters are a spectacular site against the bright sky and snow-capped Andean mountains. The Uros floating reed islands and Taquile and Amantaní are some of the many islands on the lake, home to some of Peru's oldest peoples and where traditional ways of life still predominate. Visit small villages around the lake, the archaeological site of Sillustani or stay in a comfortable lodge sitting right on the lake shore or on one of the islands.

Best reached by road or by train; both means of transport take you high into the altiplano and offer panoramic views of the Andean landscape dotted.

The border between Peru and its neighbour Bolivia cuts the lake in half and the islands and small towns on the Bolivian side certainly are also worth the extra journey. Easily combinable with an extension into Bolivia, crossing the lake by catamaran or hydrofoil allows for further exploration of the lake or to continue to travel to La Paz, Bolivia’s high-altitude capital city.
