DAY 01:PUNO – UROS ISLAND – AMANTANI

Pick up from your hotel for your transfer to main port. A boat ride to the Island of Uros. Fishermen and hunters inhabit the floating islands of Uros. The residents of the Uros use the totora reed (aquatic plant) that grows in the lake, to create life conditions and ensure that the islands stay afloat. The dense roots that generate these plants support the island. The Uros use the totora reed to build their islands, houses, for cooking, eating, and to sale in the city of Puno, besides to barter (exchange) with products such as quinoa, potatoes, barley and wool. This culture appeared over 3000 years ago and the people have spoken as a language Uro puquina, the last person who still spoke the Uru Puquina language died in 1951, now a day the population speak Aimara Language. On Uros live more than 2000 people, divided into 80 artificial islands built with totora reeds, where reed boats (balsa) are the unique method of transportation which is also used for fishing. Then a trip to Amantani Island is located 41 km away from Puno, where live 4000 people. Year after year the inhabitants of Amantani Island have been struggling for a better quality of life, so this tour has been created to support the people of the island, receiving from them lodging, food and an unforgettable experience in the middle of the Lake Titicaca.

DAY 02:AMANTANI ISLAND – TAQUILE – PUNO

Breakfast included at guesthouse. Then we visit Taquile Island, famous for its craft production (declared cultural heritage of humanity), particularly for its beautiful textiles. The people still practice the moral principles of Inca as “Ama Sua” (do not steal) “Ama Quella” (do not be lazy) and “Ama Llulla” (do not lie) that are still used among inhabitants. The island is about 1.5 km wide and 5.7 km length. Taquile Island was a prison during the colonial period, now a day live 2000 people approximately, where people wear a special hat for example regarding the single or married and authorities.
