Lake Titicaca Bolivia Lake Titicaca travel Bolivia tours Bolivia information about trips hotels and Amazon lodges in Bolivia Lake Titicaca:


An inexpugnable mantel of fog wraps up the vault of the sky in this morning of fine rain drops, uncertain clarity of shades and blurred images. Indications of beauty are shown off in the unconcluded lines of the horizon; suddenly, the curtain of fog is ripped by the phantasmagoric silhouette of a fragile craft, obstinate in crossing the legendary waters of a lake willing to be a sea.

The sighs of the wind shiver, slap and fatten the sails of the solitary craft, headed by a man of elusive eyes and prominent cheekbones that knows the whims of the Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world (3,810 m.a.s.l.) and the bigger in extension in South America, with an area of 8,300 square kilometers.

Lake Titicaca, Bolivia

The fragile silhouette disappears diving in the fog. The fog cover the blued immensity of the Titicaca, the cradle of the biggest empire in the Pre Columbian America, because of its cold and calm waters, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo arose and founded the Incan society in the heights of Cuzco, following an order given by their father, the Sun.

Source of life, myths and legends, the lake is located in the highland of Bolivia and Peru, becoming a natural border between both countries. In the Bolivian area, the islands of El Sol, Suriki and Kalahuta, are rural but fascinating places, in which the features of the old Andean cultures can still be perceived.

But the islands of weavers of rafts and expert fishermen are not the only attractions. In the lake proximities is located the bucolic town of Copacabana (department of La Paz), home of the miraculous Virgen Morena. The image -venerated by the whole highland- was carved by a descendant of the Inca.

Finally, the father Sun becomes present and completes his duty of offering his heat to these lands of the Andes and the fog disappears. The sun shines in the transparent sky.

here is not any unconcluded line in the horizon anymore. The waters glow. The Titicaca moves for its overwhelming beauty and its pretension to be a sea.
