Puno and Lake Titicaca

Location: Peru


Visit the "Capital folklórica del Perú" of Puno and its native residents, the Aymara. Encounter the abundance of beautiful crafts, fine fabrics in alpaca wool, and the archaeological remains of Pre-Hispanic cultures that harbor jewels of the architecture and colonial art of the Spanish conquest of the Paraguay and of the Mojos. Continue onto Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, traveling beside the snowy mountain range of the Cordillera Real of Bolivia. Spend a night with the Aymara families who live over floating artificial islands of Lake Titicaca, where many ancestral customs still exist.
