Lake Titicaca is one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world it is also deep with averge depths of over 150m and at its deepest about 280m .

The lake has about 40 islands some of which are heavly populated, Lake Titicaca translates as Rock Puma because the shape is supposed to resemble a puma chasing a rabbit ! dont see it my self
Another island this time a different indigenous Indian Poeple the Taquile, famed for there high quality Handicrafts,... more travel advice
