Challapampa is a village near the north end of Isla del Sol in Lake Titicaca, Bolivia. It has a quite basic tourist infrastructure, second to Yumani on the south side.

Get in[edit]

Two daily boats from Copacabana via Yumani.

Get around[edit]

Easy to walk on foot.


  • The Museo del Oro has not a gram of gold in it, but buying the ticket is mandatory to have a look at the nearby ruins.
  • Sunset (i.e. from a hill near the archaeological site - same ticket as for Museo del Oro) and sunrise.
  • Island vegetation (colorful flowers, cacti) and terraces of farmland.


  • Take a dip in the lake - the water is just fine. Best done from one of the beaches near the village.



  • A handful of restaurants offer menu deals at Bs 15-20.



  • A few basic hostales (i.e. Bs 20 a night).

A very good accomodation is at Alfonso's "Wiracocha". Bs 20 at night: It's basic but clean. They have hot shower, but don't expect them to be such that hot…anyway it's the same in the whole Challapampa. Alfonso's family is very kind and they really are respectful awesome people. Great way to stay by your own and enjoying this beautiful island.


Get out[edit]

Walk to Yumani, via the Chincana ruins.
