Uros Floating Islands, Puno
Categories: Islands, Nature & Parks
To witness an entire community living on islets of totora reeds, head to Uros Floating Islands. Floating atop Lake Titicaca, the 42 floating islands are home to the Uros people, who continue to live a traditional lifestyle based on fishing and bird hunting. The arrival of tourism has affected the Uros way of life, with many locals now selling handicrafts to visitors as a means of making money. Appreciate the incredible ingenuity of the locals, but don't be surprised if your visit seems less "genuine" than you expected. Arrange to visit Uros Floating Islands and other attractions in Puno using our Puno tour planner.
