ITINERARY

Day 01:

Transport by motor boat stopping at the Uros Islands for 30 minute where you can see how the familys used the totora (Plant that grows in the lake) and they used this for built treir houses and other mores.

before departing to the island of Amantani. There are no hotels on Amantani Islands but on arrival the group is split into smaller groups for overnight stays with local families.

It is very beautiful and peaceful, and in many ways less spoiled than Taquile. There are six villages and ruins on both of the island's peaks, Pacha Tata and Pacha Mama , from which there are excellent views. There are also temples and on the shore there is a throne carved out of stone. The residents make beautiful textiles and sell them quite cheaply at the Artensania Cooperative after this we return to the house for sleep. The people are Quechua speakers, but understand Spanish.

Day 02:

After we have our breakfast, we go of Amantani island to Taquile Island for one hour aproximately.

when we arrived we visited the tow of Taquile are numerous pre-Inca and Inca ruins and Inca terracing. The island is narrow, only about 1 km wide, and 6-7 km long. There is a cooperative shop on the island that sells exceptional woollen goods, which are not cheap, but of very fine quality. you will have the opportunity to buy beautiful handmade weavings and collages depicting the life on the islands. The inhabitants on some islands have built small 'museums' with stuffed birds inside, or lookout towers to get a better view. For a dollar or so you can usually take a 10 minutes ride on the lake in a traditional reed boat.

All in all it makes for an interesting visit since there's nowhere else quite like it in the world. Transfer to your hotel.
