For a long time, I’ve been longing to visit the highest navigable lake in the world, the famous Lake Titicaca located between Peru and Bolivia. At 3856 metres above sea level, this lake is said to be bigger than Switzerland! During our world trip (Orange Spots on Tour) in 2016, we finally took off on a breathtaking tour to the Uros Floating Islands at Lake Titicaca. Also, we enjoyed a nice hike on the island of Taquile. Enjoy the ashtonishing views, breathtaking landscapes and the colorful clothing of the Uros people living on this immense lake!

If you’re planning to pay a short visit to Lake Titicaca and the Uros Islands, it’s convenient to book a hotel in Puno. We stayed at Hotel Cantuta Inn located between the bus station and the city center. The hotel is very affordable and the staff is amazingly friendly! We loved the breakfast at the hotel: home made quinoa pancakes and lots of fresh fruits. We we’re able to book an afoordable lastminute trip to Uros Islands and Taquile (all-in) via the hotel.
Eat @ Mojsa Restaurant
A centrally located restaurant in Puno recommended by the staff of our hotel. It sure was a nice restaurant with excellent service! We ordered alpaca meat and a typical Peruvian dish from Arequipa (Rocoto relleno), both of excellent quality!
