Nestled in the heights of the Andes, Lake Titicaca, as well as being South America’s largest lake, is believed by indigenous communities to be the birthplace of the sun. Shimmering under endless blue skies at an altitude of 3,800 metres, Lake Titicaca is a brilliant place to experience the pre-Hispanic Andean culture, with villages of people living their lives in the old ways spread along the lake shores, and on the lake’s islands. Particularly fascinating are the Islas de los Uros, floating islands made of reeds, home to the Uros people.
What better way to experience it than on a Wendy Wu tour?
