Lake Titicaca Tours & Vacations
When on a Bolivia vacation, Lake Titicaca is found in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. Regarding the volume of water, it is considered the largest lake in South America with the western part of the lake in the Puno Region of Peru and the eastern side in the La Paz Department of Bolivia.
The lake and surrounding area were sacred to the Inca civilization and played a major role in their mythology. It is believed that the first Inca king, Manco Capac was born there and that the god Viracocha came out of the lake and created the world, the sun, the stars and the first people. In 1978 the Titicaca Reserve was created with the goal of preserving the native flora and fauna and maintaining the area’s natural beauty.
Lake Titicaca is situated at a very high altitude some 3,800 m (12,457 ft) above sea level and is home to forty-one islands. The small historical communities that exist on some of the islands provide a rare insight into ancient Inca civilizations. Isla del Sol boasts 150 ruins from the Incan period and Isla de la Luna has a great deal of Incan-styled architecture as well as traditional markets. Bolivia’s Copacabana on the lake’s southern shore is popular with tourists on Bolivia tours as it provides an excellent base for exploring this incredibly beautiful part of the country.
