Lago Titicaca, the sacred lake of the plateau in the eyes of Indians, has been singing gently for thousands of years beside the small city of Puno and in the wind of the plateau. Legend has it that the mysterious leader, Manco & Kapak, came from the center of Lake Titicaca to create the Inca Empire. Starting early in the morning in a speedboat from Puno, the magical floating island (Islas Flotantes de Los Uros) can be reached in about 45 minutes. The islands floating on the lake are woven by a reed called "Totora". The magic of nature lies in the fact that the weakest reeds can withstand the storms and waves, achieve strong shelters, and preserve the living fossil life style of the Aymara residents. As Pascal said - "Man is only a reed grass, the most vulnerable thing in nature, but he is a thinking reed..." It is also a knowledge to watch naive children hopping barefoot over thick Pu tufts and even to peel and eat fresh-picked reeds directly. Say goodbye to the magical floating island and head for another Isla Taquile, an absolutely independent island. Almost 4000 meters above sea level, there are more than 2000 Kechua people living on the island. Tachili Island was known as "Intika" during the Inca Empire, and the islanders still keep the admonition of "Don't steal, don't lie, don't be lazy" during the Inca Empire, and retain the simple folk custom. When we arrived here, the simple villagers with bright smiles played folk music and danced for us. In spite of the great kindness, I also did a lot of dancing..... The islands at an altitude of 4 kilometers testify to me - travel, let me meet rich and colorful distances and more open myself.
Titicaca Lake is the highest freshwater lake in the world. It is the holy lake of the ancient Inca Empire. Its water is as blue as the sea. It is very clear and charming. Potatoes are also abundant here. It is not only big but also very sweet and glutinous. There are several islands on the lake that can be visited. Sun Island and Moon Island are the most beautiful and worth visiting.
Titicaca Lake is really worth visiting. It has the characteristics of Indo-Canadian, charming scenery and zero tickets. A one-day tour in Puno to the local travel agency takes only 50 Sol (RMB 100) including hotel pick-up, tickets, and a lunch at noon on two islands on Lake Titicaca (floating island and taquile island), which is very cost-effective. Of course, you can choose other routes. The price is fairer.
Titicaca Lake is a beautiful natural landscape in Puno. It is surrounded by mountains. Because of the high altitude air, it is very fresh. Reflecting the distant mountains and the blue sky and white clouds in the sky on the broad lake is like a huge mirror, which is very beautiful.
Located on the Koyao Plateau at the border of Bolivia and Peru, Lake Titicaca is the highest and largest freshwater lake in South America. It is also one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. It is also the largest navigable Lake in the world, and the third largest lake in South America (after Lake Maracaibo and Lake Pattos). Lake Titicaca is Lago Titicaca in Spanish. The name of Lake Titicaca on the floating island of the lake originates from the native Indian language. It may mean "the cliff of the leopard" or "the cliff of the chieftain". There are different translations of Rock of the Puma or Crag of Lead. There are 52 islands in the lake, most of which are inhabited. The largest island, Titicaca, has the site of an Inca-era temple and is also the sacred lake of the Indians. (1)
Lake Titicaca is the largest plateau lake in the world. Living on a floating island at an altitude of 3,800 meters, living with the indigenous people, I feel that there is no Wi-Fi, no bathing, no power supply and no entertainment. These floating islands and the above grass houses are woven with reeds. There are 90 families on the whole lake, one island, and they repeat sunrise, sunset and catching every day. Fish, the life of hunting in the evening.
This is the largest freshwater lake in South America, which spans Peru and another country. Peru occupies the majority of the lake. There are some beautiful islands in the lake. It used to be possible to go by boat, but now I don't know how long it will take. The world is so big, it still needs to go out to see.
Titicaca Lake, a cruise ship, is located at the junction of Bolivia and Peru. Peru has a large area on this side. Visit the water house of the local Uru people. These houses are made of a plant whose roots are tied together by ropes and cross-covered with thatch. Local residents live on it, and solar energy is used to get electricity and watch TV. Residents drink water from special places in the lake and go to special places for toilet use.
