Lake Titicaca; Uros Floating Islands
Half Day Tour
The artificial floating islands of the Uros in Peru, are ancestral people that lives in small communities in the middle of the highest navigable lake of the world; the Titicaca. The yellowish islets in which these inhabitants raise their houses are built with a type of reed called totora that grows in the water. There are currently around 80 islands on the Peruvian side of the Lake Titicaca and it is estimated that there are around 1,800 people living there, usually related to each other.
