Discovering the Lake Titicaca (Sillustani, Uros, Taquille & Suasi)
04 days / 03 nights
Day 01 : Lima / Juliaca (Sillustani on the way) / Puno
Arrival in Juliaca and transfer to Puno (located at 20 kms), on the way we will visit the archaeological center of Sillustani. We will observe impressive funeral tombs belonging to the Kolla culture (1200-1450). Their noble class (Caciques, priests) were buried in funeral towers called chullpas. Their corpses were previously mummified and placed in fetus position together with some of their belongings, such as gold and silver objects, jewelry, ceramics, and food. Then we continue towards the city of Puno for stay overnight.
Day 02 : Floating Island of Uros / Taquille / Suasi Island
Early breakfast and transfer to the local pier to board our fast speed boat to start our adventure in the Titikaka lake. We will make two stops on route. The first one to visit one of the 40 ‘Uros’ reed islands. Main activities in these Islands -made of totora- are fishing, hunting, and taxidermy. The next stop is in Taquile Island. We disembark in (less known) South part of the island. We continue cruising until we reach Suasi. The sunset over Titicaca Lake can be already witnessed on the island. Suasi is a largely unknown private island with a lovely hotel -built with natural materials like stone and adobe and thatched with ‘ichu’ local high-altitude grass. The hotel is located on a hilltop and offers stunning lake views from every room. Due to its remoteness and awesome sceneries Suasi is an ideal place to relax and forget ’fast life’. Overnight.
Day 03 : Suasi Island
You will find yourself immersed in the special energy of this truly special island. Walking, hiking, fishing are just some of the activities available. Be on the lookout for unique animals such as llamas and alpacas as well as tarucas (Andean deers). You'll also find a lovely rose garden and a green house where organic crops of native grains and vegetables are grown. If you just want to relax the spa offers different health treatments for its guests (at additional cost). An insight about the Altiplano, its cultural legacy, history and natural environment can be gained at the hotel's Andean library.
Day 04 : Suasi / Conima / Huancane / Taraco / Juliaca or Puno
Breakfast and departure to Conima (at 30 min.) from where we will begin our trip back to Juliaca. On the way you will visit the towns of Moho, Huancane, and Taraco. We will visit their beautiful colonial churches and plazas. Arrival in Juliaca and transfer to your hotel in Puno, bus station, or airport. End of services.
