In describing the main tourist activities, we should first point out that we are
in the heart of Lake Titicaca which, at an altitude of 3,810 m. or 12,497 ft., is
the highest navigable lake in the world.
Due to its natural influence, complemented by the cordillera of the Andes, the Lake
Titicaca area was the main centre of development of Andean civilization. A civilization
with its roots in mythology, which describes how the first two Incas, Manco Kapac
and Mama Ocllo, were born here and later went to Cuzco to found the Inca empire.
Many traditions are kept alive and show us what the social structure of this culture
was like in the past. For example, the use of the old terraces for agriculture avoids
erosion, makes better use of the steep hillsides and improves irrigation. Religion
is still closely linked to nature (sun, moon, earth, mountains, storms, rain, etc.)
and its effects. Finally, social traditions such as music, clothing and way of life
are still maintained.Just walking its trails or admiring the landscape will transport
you to ancient worlds.
