Discover traditional communities on the reed islands of Lake Titicaca

Puno, on the shore of Lake Titicaca, is a town to visit the Uros Reed Islands and Taquille Island and a stopover en route to Bolivia.

Looking out over the shimmering deep blue waters of Lake Titicaca, with the distant Andes mountains of the Cordillera Real in the background, you begin to realise just why this lake is considered to be so special. Lake Titicaca is the world's highest navigable lake and the place where the myth of creation of the Inca Empire originated. For centuries the Peruvian Quechua and Aymara natives have managed to sustain a productive lifestyle in this extraordinary region. Today we find colourful communities living on floating reed islands and deeply held traditions continuing to thrive, none more so than on Taquile island, where the colour of a man's hat is based on his marital status and where knitting is the sole domain of male inhabitants.
