Lake Titicaca: Visit Lake Titicaca's floating islands

Visit Us

Visit Lake Titicaca's floating islands

The unusual floating existence of the Uros Indians began several centuries ago, when they chose to isolate themselves from the other peoples of the lakeshore and constructed island homes from the reeds that grow in the shallows of the lake.

To this day a village of reed structures floats upon Lake Titicaca, complete with a church, a school, simple restaurants and even a football pitch. You can visit the floating islands and set foot on their spongy surface, witnessing the islanders' unique lifestyle for yourself.
