VISIT TO THE UROS FLOATING ISLANDS
Your guides will take you by car and boat to visit the legendary islands of Uros and meet one of traditional families that live there. The Uros Floating Islands are located near the protected National Reserve of Titicaca. The people of Uros are a proud culture, who due to persecution by other groups found refuge by living on manmade islands many years ago. They call themselves kot-suña or people of the lake who claim to have "black blood," as they are immune to the cold and consider themselves to be owners of the lake and its waters. Learn about their history, uses for totora reeds and customs, after exploring one of these impressive islands. The site is a must for travelers to the area, thus expect to see many other visitors.
