The weather in Lake Titicaca is wide and varied

Stretching out across the borders of both Peru and Bolivia at 3,812m above sea level, Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lake. Its high altitude means temperatures here can be chilly at any time of year, though weather conditions do vary between seasons. April - October is the drier season with clear blue skies, plenty of strong sunshine and little chance of rain. This is an ideal time to visit; explore pre-Inca burial sites in Peru or visit the intricately woven floating islands on either side of the border. The wet season runs from November - March and brings warmer temperatures, frequent rains and poorer visibility which can obscure views over the lake. In terms of visitors, most arrive during the busy holiday months of July - August, while May and September tend to be quieter with good weather conditions.
