Tour Details
Lake Titicaca Amantani Island Homestay - Lake Titicaca Travel

Experience the best of the life on the islands of the Largest lake in South America and get an insight to the life of local families living here on this overnight Lake Titicaca Amantani Island Homestay. This Lake Titicaca Travel experience takes you to three islands – Uros, Taquile and Amantani islands. 

Lake Titicaca is the highest lake in the world at an altitude of 3810 metres or 12500 feet above sea level. It straddles the border between Peru and Bolivia. It is popularly known as the birthplace of the sun. Lake Titicaca is home to many Inca ruins. Locals living here have preserved their age-old traditions and customs. 

Uros floating islands are the most visited attractions here. It is built using totora reeds. Back in time when the local family here had disputes they would simply detach the island and float elsewhere. 

Island of Taquile is home to people who continue to maintain their traditions and are untouched by modernity. On this full day tour our local guide will give you an insight to their way of life. You will see their traditional way of making shampoos. 

Men here are known for knitting and producing some of the finest handmade outfits in the country.  

Amantani is home to two sacred peaks of Incas – Pachatata and Pachamama. Here you will be spending a night at a local family home. 

The full day trip will give you a better understanding of the diversity in the culture and beliefs of people on these three islands on Lake Titicaca.

This overnight tour of Lake Titicaca was very nice. We visited three islands and spent a night doing homestay with a local family on Amantani Island. Everything was taken care extremely well by Machu Picchu Peru Cusco team.
