Puno has an enviable geography. The main attractions in Puno are outside the city: the floating communities of Lake Titicaca and the ancient Sillustani Chullpas.

OVERVIEW.

 

South America’s largest lake and the world’s highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca has long been considered a sacred place among indigenous Andean peoples. The people who live in and around the lake consider themselves descendants of Mama Qota, or Sacred Mother, and they believe that powerful spirits live in the lake’s depths.

 

According to Andean legend, Lake Titicaca — which straddles the modern border between Peru and Bolivia — was the birthplace of civilization. Viracocha, the creator deity, lightened a dark world by having the sun, moon, and stars rise from the lake to occupy their places in the sky.

  Puno is located on the Andean plain dominated by the presence of Lake Titicaca, a sacred place for the Incas, with both natural and artificial islands, as well as pre-Hispanic archaeological sites with circular constructions known as chullpas. There are also churches with markedly colonial architecture. The region’s people are proud of their Quechua and Aymara past and a folkloric tradition that overflows each year during the Candelaria festival.   Puno is a legend, with multi colour festivals and natural and artificial islands.

Straddles the modern border between Bolivia and Peru was the birthplace of civilization, Lake Titicaca is one of the most fascinating lakes in the world. It is situated at a very high altitude, at over 3800 meters above sea level, and a tour at Titicaca is definitely an unforgettable experience for any visitor. When visiting Lake Titicaca, the town of Puno is the best place to stay.

 

The town of Puno is an interesting place to visit and a dazzling sight as it is the capital of folklore of Peru. It also has a beautiful old cathedral, and it is close to many attractions of Peru like the Machu Picchu or the town of Cusco.

 

Lake Titicaca, Its deep azure waters seemingly extend forever across the altiplano, under the monstrously wide sky. Daybreak and sunset are particularly stunning to witness.

 

Lake Titicaca is a sacred place for the Inca civilization, as the Incan mythology says that the first Inca king, Manco Capac, was born here. According to the Incan mythology, this is the place where the world was created from, when the god Wiracocha came out of the lake and created the sun, the stars and the first people. You will have many places to discover on the shore of Lake Titicaca, as well as on the many islands that exist on the lake.

 

On the Bolivian side of the lake you will find the fascinating town of Challapampa, home of the famous labyrinth (Chinkana). Also on the Bolivian side, you can find the biggest island of the lake, Isla Del Sol (Island of the Sun). While there are no roads on the island, making it not tourism friendly, the over 180 ruins from the Incan period are making it worth to visit.

 

You can go on a half-day tour of the Uros Floating Islands or a full-day tour that includes Taquile Island, but the best way to experience Lake Titicaca’s unique indigenous life is to stay at least 1 night on either Taquile or Amantaní, preferably in the home of a local family. Those with more time and money to burn may want to explore the singular experience of staying on private Isla Suasi, home to little more than a solar-powered hotel and a dozen llamas and vicuñas.
