The Uros Islands are a group of 40 floating islands which provide a glimpse of one of the region’s oldest cultures. The islands are man-made, woven from Totora reeds and the dense roots that these plants develop support the island. The islanders live in huts made from the same materials and travel from island to island in boats also made from the reeds. The local inhabitants make their living by fishing and trapping birds. They also make weavings, collages and musical instruments to sell to the visiting tourists. We’ll have lunch at one of the Islands.

After lunch we’ll travel to the island of Taquile. The island is located 35km west of Puno and surrounded by the vast ocean-like waters of Lake Titicaca. Taquile is inhabited by proud, Quechua-speaking natives who still wear traditional clothes and have successfully maintained the lifestyle of their ancestors. There is a very strong sense of community on the island.

Sillustani comprises of 28 stone burial towers representing a city of dead dating from the 14th and 15th centuries.

The tombs are built above the ground and demonstrate a lot of symbolism. The inside of the tombs are shaped like a woman’s uterus. The ancestors who built them believed in Mother Earth creating and regulating life and when a person died, they were mummified in the fetal position, leaving the world as they had entered. The doors of the tombs face east, because it is believed that that is where the sun is born from Mother Earth each day. On the way back to Puno, we’ll visit the house of a traditional Family.
