Uros – Taquile (Full Day)

Welcome to a full-day adventure that will transport you to the heart of Lake Titicaca’s cultural and natural wonders – the Uros Floating Islands and Taquile Island. Nestled in the Peruvian Andes, Lake Titicaca is not only the world’s highest navigable lake but also a cradle of ancient traditions and breathtaking landscapes. This experience promises to be a journey of discovery and immersion, offering a glimpse into the unique way of life of its indigenous communities.

Our full-day Uros and Taquile excursion begins with a captivating visit to the Uros Floating Islands. These remarkable man-made islands are constructed entirely from totora reeds, which grow abundantly in the lake. As you set foot on these floating marvels, you’ll step into a world where tradition meets innovation. The Uros people, known as the “Water Tribe,” have maintained their way of life for centuries by continuously adding new layers of reeds to their islands. This sustainable approach to living in harmony with nature is a testament to their resilience and ingenuity.

During your visit to the Uros Islands, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with the friendly locals. You’ll learn about their unique customs, the art of reed weaving, and the significance of the lake in their daily lives. It’s a chance to gain insights into a culture that has thrived in this challenging environment for generations.

OTROS

It is advisable to be in Puno, 1 day before starting the trip, due to altitude conditions. As long as you take the time to acclimatize properly in Puno, i.e. just rest on arrival, you will probably only experience mild effects, but you are at 3800 meters and the hike on Taquile Island will make you wheeze, so take it easy.

Trip to Cusco 2024 I was in Cusco for 4 days, traveling with friends, we visited Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, the archaeological park of Machu Picchu with the company Peru top Expierence. From Paraguay, the organization of the trip was in charge of the guide William Silva, super attentive to doubts and with the necessary information for the tour. In Cusco he welcomed us again and then we stayed at Prisma Hotel, good service. Then to go to Pisaq, to the train station in Ollantaytambo and to Machu Picchu, another guide from the company, Mr. Carlos Alfredo, accompanied us. In Aguas Calientes we stayed at the Andino hotel. Good attention. Good gastronomy in general, except the place called El Maizal that includes the bus tour to Ollantaytambo, from there they either change places or include a personal lunch in that day's tour. Super recommended @perutopexpierience to discover the wonders of Cusco! The flight from Lima to Cusco was by Jetsmart. Regular care. Many requirements for foreigners regarding luggage but not so much for nationals. They should improve that.

Inolvidable!! Hicimos varios tours laguna de Humantay, Montaña de 7 colores, Valle Sagrado, Machupicchu y City Tour, la coordinación estuvo muy bien, no tuvimos problemas ni con traslado o reservas, los guias fueron muy amables y los almuerzos y desayunos que eran parte del tour eran diversos y abundantes. Excelente servicio. Como recomendación revisar bien los horarios de los tour ya que inician super temprano 4:00am y terminan tarde, así que considera hacer 2 tours laguna y montaña y dia 3 valle sagrado que es mas tarde 7:30am y regresando de Machupicchu haz el tour por la ciudad en la tarde para descansar la mañana. A nosotros nos funciono perfecto! ;)

A great adventurous journey! If you would love to explore the surroundings of Machu Picchu but you're worried the 4 day hike might be too hard for you, this is the perfect option. We had a great time, beginning with the convenient and comfortable communication with our guide Manuel who supported us to organize the transport to the start of the treck and the hike itself was a unique experience that we don't want to miss. The hike itself rewarded us with the perfect first view on Machu Picchu on day one and we had the whole second day to explore the whole side more in detail. Accomodation, Food, Transport and a great guide is included in the price. Thanks to Manuel it was an great adventureous journey - thanks for that.
