Lake Titicaca is known for a population of people who live on the Uros, a group of 40+ artificial islands made of floating reeds. Islands are one of the major tourist attraction for Peru. Daily excursions are available for tourists from the lakeside city of Puno.
A visitor arrives in Puno with one look on his face and leaves with an entirely different one, more real and lasting. Maybe it is the humbling presence of the Titicaca, out of whose sparkling waters rise ancient legends. Or, perhaps it is the fantastic looking Sillustani chullpas (burial towers) lining the lake shore. Who knows.
