You will be collected from your hotel in Puno and transferred to the border where you will be assisted with your border procedures. The road from Puno runs along the shores of Lake Titicaca offering amazing views of not only the lake but the Andean mountains and the many local villages that do the shore line. Continue your journey by road where you will reach the Taquini Straights - the narrowest part of Lake Titicaca where you will cross. At this point you will hop off your land transport and on to a small vessel while your bus/mini van crosses on a barge as old as the lake itself! On the other side you will reunite with your bus/mini van and continue on to La Paz via Tiahuanaco.
Tiahuanaco, near the shores of Lake Titicaca, was the centre of a powerful, self-sustaining empire in the southern Central Andes. The roots of the Tiahuanaco capital can be found in the early village underlying the 1.5 square mile civic-ceremonial core. The city was settled by 400BC on the Tiahuanaco River, with empties into Lake Titicaca to the north. The small farming village evolved into a regal city of multi-terraced platform pyramids, courts and urban areas, covering a total 2.31 square miles between AC 100 and 1000.
Tiahuanaco is recognized by Andean scholars as one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire, flourishing as the ritual and administrative capital of a major state power for approximately five hundred years.
On arrival into La Paz you will be dropped at your hotel.
