Lake Titicaca

titicaca

Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America.  Stretching for more than 230km in length and 97km in width, it stradles both Peru and Bolivia.  Situated at an elevation of 3820m it is also said to be the highest navigable lake in the world.  The water is a stunning shade of sapphire that glistens in the high-altitude sunlight.  Set against the stark plains of the altiplano with traditional Aymaran villages dotting the coastline and the snow-topped peaks of the Cordillera Real rising up in the background, the limitless horizons and beautiful landscapes of Lake Titicaca are magical.
