This is the world's largest navigable lake to large vessels, which lies more than 12,500 feet above sea level and covers 3,200 square miles in the Andes Mountains between the border of Peru to the west and Bolivia to the east.

We flew from Lima to Puno to see Lake Titicaca and the Reed Islands. Staying at the Hotel Casa Adrina was the right choice. Quiet. And waterfront.
The weather was sunny and warm....but not hot. Perfect for a full day tour in the lake.
I had a dream to see this lake at 12700ft altitude and a trip by Peru Hop bus fulfilled the dream. The lake is very big and the world’s highest lake navigable to large vessels It is located in the Andes Mountains of South America,...More

Learn about the ways the locals have evolved over the years from fishermen to tourism experts. The waters are tranquil and clean and I only wish it had been summer to enjoy a swim. The floating islands are something to explore and wonder about.
It’s very rustic. May not be for everyone. I’m glad I did it for the once in a lifetime experience. But wasn’t necessarily the make or break of the trip. Yes language is a barrier. We Brought few food staples to the... More
It’s very rustic. May not be for everyone. I’m glad I did it for the once in a lifetime experience. But wasn’t necessarily the make or break of the trip. Yes language is a barrier. We Brought few food staples to the family as host gift. It was COLD - 4 or 5 blankets at night. But the baying of the family donkey at midnight was charm. No vehicles. Strictly hiking.. No running water so had to flush the toilet outside our hut with handy bucket of water. One lightbulb in our room=electricity.
My daughter and I were glad we experienced this unique opportunity. But it’s not a requirement in experiencing the culture and Peruvian experience.
