Lake Titicaca, also known as the Sacred Lake of the Incas, is a tremendous lake that is the world’s highest navegable lake in the world. Dreams become reality with an unusual blue surrounding, and spectacular panoramic views, including that of the Andes. Many cultures have grown on its shores, and also believe it is the vortex of cosmic energy. The major attractions are Huatajata, native fisherman’s spots, a stretch of Tiquina dividing the Chuito lake from the small Wiñay Marka, the Isla del Sol (Island of the sun). According to tradition, the area is the cradle of Incan Empire. Other main attractions include la Isla de la Luna (Island of the moon), the temple of the virgins of the sun, the Sanctuary of Copacabana, which gave its name to the famous Copacabana beach in Rio, and is not far from the the ruins of Tiwanacu, which is considered to be the cradle of american civilization.
