Lake Titicaca

Visit Lake Titicaca

Introduction

Mythical Lake Titicaca has sacred origins as the source of the Inca creator deity, Viracocha, who emerged from the icy depths and went on to found Cusco and the Inca dynasty.

Indigenous people in the area still practice age-old traditions that have defined the Andean region; the inhabitants of the floating reed islands of Islas Uros consider themselves the oldest people on earth.

Elsewhere on the lake, the small island of Isla Suasi is home to one thatched-rood, stonewalled eco-lodge that runs solely on solar power.

There are protected bird areas as well as centuries-old tracts of natural vegetation and cultivated herbs.
