What to See in Lake Titicaca

The Uros Floating Islands

The floating islands of Uros are the main attraction of Lake Titicaca. The Uros community built these man-made islands from reeds found in Lake Titicaca called totora reeds, as they’ve done for centuries. As you step onto the floating islands you’ll be welcomed by their residents and educated about their way of life.

Taquile Weavers

The island of Taquile was relatively isolated from the rest of Peru until recently due to its location off the shores of Lake Titicaca. Its inhabitants, regardless of gender, have upheld a long-standing tradition of textile art. These weavings have been declared by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.


Puno is celebrated as the folklore capital of Peru and hosts the Candelaria Festival every year in February. This lakeside city is the gateway to Lake Titicaca.

Candelaria Festival

Every year at the beginning of February, the Festival of the Virgen de la Candelaria is celebrated in Puno for 18-days. This vibrant festival is filled with colorful costumes, local Peruvian music, and traditional dances.


Close to Lake Titicaca, Sillustani is a cylindrical necropolis along the shores of Laguna Umayo. A pre-Inca burial site, Sillustani was built over 500 years ago by the Culla civilization. Here you can find ruins with carvings of sacred animals and 40 ft. tall towers.


Amantani is one of the real islands on Lake Titicaca, not a floating one. Here you can do a Lake Titicaca homestay with a local family to make new connections and learn more about the way of life on the island.


Cutimbo is an impressive ancient burial site close to Lake Titicaca. Like Sillustani, you can witness some impressive archaeological finds like stone tombs, cave paintings, and carvings.

Pukara Archaeological Site

The Pukara archaeological complex is located about one hour north of Puno. Inside is the Pukara Lithic Museum where you can discover weaving tools, pieces of decorated pottery, and other artifacts. Some of these pieces date back to 500 BC.
