An immense body of fresh water amid the parched landscape of the Altiplano. At 8380 km2 it is one of the world's highest major lakes. The Incas believed that it was the birthplace of their civilization. As well as being an interesting hike to see the stunning scenery, it will also offer us the opportunity to interact with the locals and will be an insight into the fascinating history of the Tiwanaku and Inca cultures.
