Not only is Lake Titicaca South America’s largest lake, it’s also the highest navigable lake in the world, sitting a lofty 3,820m (12,500 feet) above sea level.

The water truly sparkles here in the clear air of the Andean altiplano, and the panoramic views seem to stretch forever. The lake is surrounded by the ancient ruins of funerary towers and colonial churches.

Titicaca is also dotted with islands, including the artificial islands of the Uros people. Known as the Islas Flotantes, the islands are made of reeds and are still lived on today. Island hopping and spending a night or two on the lake with the locals is the best way to explore Titicaca.

Another island well worth visiting is Amantani, where visitors can join in nightly festivities and don traditional dress.
