Lake Titicaca Overview

Although it is situated at a lofty 3,810 meters (12,500 ft), Lake Titicaca is no longer acknowledged as the world’s highest navigable lake. This takes away nothing, however, from the region that boasts such an infamous and vast body of water and surrounding scenery that will literally take your breath away.
Enormous Lake Titicaca stretches almost 10,000 square kilometers within a huge Andean crater on the frontier between Bolivia and Peru, and is a must-see when visiting either country. Lakeside fishing villages, quaint communities, the snow-peaked Cordillera Real and charming Copacabana are obvious highlights in this area of unrivaled natural beauty, a place where truly authentic experiences can be found. At such a close proximity to La Paz (only two hours by bus), the region makes for an easy day trip, though you’ll likely want to extend your stay once you see all there is to explore.
