  • Beautiful experience! He would return with more time. Ask muna to relieve the high sea. The ascent to the main square of the island is complicated

  • The tour included Uros costs 60soles included admission to Islands and lunch. it comes in a boat to 2 hours of the city. To get to the center of the island a steep walk of approx 40 min should be. Then you have lunch at the Center a fried trout or vegetarian option.

  • The group visit I made includes the crossing of the island from East to West, with an elevation gain of about 200 m. Strictly on foot, on the island there are no motor vehicles. As it reaches 4000, we recommend a minimum of training. The trails are in excellent condition. The effort is rewarded by breathtaking views. The inhabitants are very discreet and courteous.
