One of Latin America's most iconic sites, Lake Titicaca straddles the border of Peru and Bolivia. At 3,821m it is the highest navigable lake in the world, sheltering a number of distinct cultures. On the Peruvian side, close to the port of Puno, you can visit the unique man-made floating reed island of the Uros indians and Taquile island.
