Titicaca Lake TourTransfer to the railway station for the First Class (Andean Explorer) scenic train to Puno (or a tourist bus may be taken). The journey will take us across the imposing altiplano region of Peru affording us views of the majestic snow peaks.
3 days / 2 nights.
Bus to Juliaca. Reception and transfer to Puno. Along the way,an excursion will be made to the pre-inca Sillustani funeral towers next to the Umayo lake. The towers form part of one of the largest and most important necropolis in the world. Used by both the Altiplano civilisation and the Incas and their wives "Collas" to honour their dead and in preparation for the after-life. It was abandoned when the first Spanish arrived. With over ninety chulpas (tombs), all built from volcanic rock, those for the Incas can be easily recognised by their finer detail. Arrival in Puno and transfer to your hotel.Day 2:
After breakfast, early transfer to the port for the boat journey on Lake Titicaca to the floating islands of Uros. Made entirely of reeds and inhabited by the Aymara Uros people, these people live in huts built on platforms of reeds, not more than 30-40 cms/1foot thick. A short walk on the islands, and then the boat trip continues as far as the island of Taquile. Members of this self supporting Aymara community receive visitors in their colourful national costume and show them around the island. Taquile is renowned for its fine, decorative weavings. Lunch is included. Return to Puno and to your hotel.
(For an extension of an overnight stay on the islands in one of the inhabitant's houses - please ask for further details) .
