Plan Your Lake Titicaca Vacation

At an altitude of 12,506 feet, Titicaca is the world's highest navigable lake and also one of the largest. It covers an area of 7,988 square km (3,963 square mi) in the altiplano, shared between Peru and Bolivia. Some of the highest peaks in the Andes rise along the northeastern shore. The lake is actually two bodies of water joined by the narrow Estrecho de Tiquina (Strait of Tiquina). The smaller section, Lago Huiñaymarca, is the easiest to reach from La Paz. To see the much larger Lago Chucuito, travel on to Peru. To visit the islands, which are the highlight of the lake, include Copacabana on your itinerary.
