  • Titicaca, L. the world's high lakes-we chose to stay on the lake for one night is the most special place for our trip! Titicaca, L. has always been impressed in my mind by the history class in China! I'm glad I can feel it. Special! In addition to the few residents on the lake, there are a few hostels that live on the island built by gourd reeds! We'll go to the island. Lifestyle includes a pile of earthen buckets and a sense of walking on the gourd reeds! In addition, we can also row the lake from the window of the room to look out a large area of quiet lake is not able to say beautiful, and can experience the decoration, very push recommended if there is a chance to Titicaca, L. don't miss the experience of living on the island!

  • The lake is beautiful and it is relaxing to go on a boat trip but why are there 20 or so shops all selling the same boat trip? And there are about 40 boats sitting idle while everyone is dangerously s...  more »

  • Amazing place! One of those "must see" places. Just don't jump off the boat into the freezing water as I did. I couldn't breve - VERY cold water
  • You can come and visit the highest lake in the world that is divided between Peru and Bolivia you can enjoy a beautiful view and admire all it's greatness, also you can enjoy of some touristic places such as copacabana, la isla del sol, etc. Or! You can relax and enjoy taking a ride by boat and many things more, you have to visit it to convince yourself.
  • 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
  • Horrible, I couldn't pronounce the name. Very angry would rate better but it has no free wifi hotpots
  • To reach some of the more remote floating islands like TITINO you just roam the harbor in the later afternoon and find an URO skipper who was born on one of them and who will take you and your mate out there for about $55 usd early the next morning- be prepared to take apples or healthy gifts to island kids and pay a black-blooded elder $20 to $30 usd for spending a couple of hours in their reed kingdom. And don't get a sunburn!
