  • The Lake is beautifully – simply fascinating. You should have seen him before the ecological disaster is complete. Admittedly, sounds cynical. Already the journey from La Paz showed the problem. Everything is gawking along the road, allowing actually fantastic views on the natural wonders of the mountains and the Lake. The rivers as well as Lake can be seen, how will drain water untreated waters into. It's completely understandable that people around the Lake see their prospects in tourism, realized not just the extensive risks and consequences, and make ecological damage in purchase. Unmistakably great poverty in Bolivia. Still, there are backpacker, that characterize the offer in Copacabana first and foremost. The crowds will increase probably, like many beautiful spots on Earth. What they say: tourists destroy what you are looking for, find it. Unfortunately the economic political front is getting. Instead of once to create the infrastructure for a sustainable tourism, uncontrolled growth without regard for losses will be tolerated. I suspect that the revenue flow through tourism in the conservation of natural resources. This is certainly not a purely Bolivian problem.

  • The "highest navigable lake" in the world with enriched history and culture. it's also habitat of The Uru an indigenous people of Peru and Bolivia. They live on forty-two self-fashioned floating islands in Lake Titicaca which is famous as Floating Islands of Take Titicaca. If you are in peru please do visit the famous floating Island and get a chance to spend a Night with Locals
  • I enjoyed the lake very much, thank you.
  • It's a must see if you go to peru I stayed on one of the islands for a night with a local family in there house it is well worth the experience seeing the floating islands and going on one is something else such and educational experience. Stunning scenery great for photography loved this part of my trip. One warning puno is not safe at night so make sure you get back to your hotel before dark. Other than go and enjoy.
  • At this altitude, clouds appears to be almost resting on the tranquil surface of the lake. A boattrip from Puno is a must-do, visit the Uros floating islands, a tourist trap worths eeing, and the island of Taquila, a very scenic and restful place. Move slowly in the thin air and mind the strength of the sunrays.
  • Very fun, love the place, very creative people and love the name
