During my Peruvian part of the South American trip I visited Puno, a city in southeastern Peru, located on the shore of Lake Titicaca. By volume of water, Lake Titicaca is the largest lake on the continent. It is often called the highest navigable lake in the world, with a surface elevation of 3,812 m (12,507 ft). Within four-days/three-nights stay in Puno I hiked Taquile Island, 3,950 m above sea level, and Sillustani, a pre-Incan cemetery on the shores of Lake Umayo (3,900 m). I have also visited the Uros floating islands man-made of totora reeds. This trip was such a unique travel experience! Here is a small portion of photos taken during the journey.
