This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the ancestral traditions and daily life of the people who inhabit the Lake Titicaca region. In the late afternoon we will head for the highest part of the island to enjoy the breathtaking sunset over Lake Titicaca. On a clear day it is possible to see the distant peaks of the Cordillera Real in Bolivia.
