Lake Titicaca (Spanish: Lago Titicaca) is located on the border between northern Bolivia and southern Peru. It is considered the highest commercially navigable body of water in the world (3821m).

Understand[edit]

Covering some 8300 square kilometers, Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America, not counting Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela, which is connected to the sea by a strait. The area of the lake is divided roughly evenly between Peru and Bolivia. Most of the Tiquina peninsula, which juts out from the Peruvian shore, also belongs to Bolivia.

  • Isla del Sol
  • Isla Amantani
  • Isla Taquille
  • The floating Uros Islands - a bit touristy/artificial, but still interesting and worth stopping-off at if you are on your way to one of the other islands
