It’s a long climb to the world’s highest navigable lake – so make sure you’re staying at one of its foremost hotels, on the water’s edge.
The rewards for journeying up to 3,800 metres above sea level are impressive. When you arrive at Lake Titicaca you will be struck by its formidable beauty – its waters stretching away towards the horizon, leading to majestic lakeside mountains. But the natural wonders aren’t the only attractions. The local people are equally picturesque in their traditional knitted costumes and characteristic hats, plying their large canoe-like boats made from the reeds surrounding the lake.
Make this Casa Andina part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Peru and you’ll be ideally placed to observe life on the lake, visit archaeological sites and local villages, and explore the thriving city of Puno.
