We’ll pick you up at 7am and take you to the bus terminal. Your adventure begins at 7:30 as you say goodbye to Cusco and start your 10h journey towards Puno, stopping at several spectacular sites along the way.
First stop is the colonial church of Andahuaylillas, known as the ‘Sistine Chapel of the Americas’ – it has to be seen to be believed! The spectacular Inca ruin of Raqchi is another highlight, and the incredibly ancient remains of Pukara round out the day. Arriving in Puno in the evening, you will be transferred to your hotel.
Lunch and guide are included.
At 4115m (13,500 ft), Lake Titicaca Peru is the world’s highest commercially navigable body of water. The Incas believed it was the cradle of civilization, the place where all life began. It’s a very special place dotted with islands that have unique living cultures and traditions, two of which we’ll visit today. The first is that of the famous man-made Uros Reed Islands, where we’ll have a tour and an explanation of the unique way of life of the people who live here.
After that, we’ll head for Amantani Island, where we’ll spend the night. Our hosts, members of the indigenous Quechua community, will meet us at the lake’s edge and are always up for a game of high-altitude soccer! When the game is over, we’ll hike to the Pachamama (Mother Earth) temple at the summit of Amantani Island for unforgettable views of the sun setting over Lake Titicaca. Later we’ll return to the homes of our hosts for a home-cooked meal. The Quechua people have maintained their traditional way of life for centuries, weaving wool, raising cuy (guinea pigs), and farming their smallholdings. It’s very quiet here – no streetlights, no cars, no dogs even!
We work with a local Puno operator for this part of the tour, and you can see the photos and links here of one such operator.
Lunch and dinner included.
After breakfast with our hosts we’ll get back on the boat and head to Taquile Island, where we’ll hike to the highest point of the island for breathtaking 360˚views of Lake Titicaca Peru, the Capachica Peninsula, Amantani Island and the Bolivian Andes. On the way we’ll visit an isolated village and have the chance to meet the local people and learn about their famous textiles and culture. After our visit, we head back to Puno for the evening, arriving in the late afternoon.
Lunch is included.
