Day 1 Sun Island on Lake Titicaca

Early this morning, transfer by private vehicle with your guide to Copacabana. From here, we board a boat and head toward Sun Island (1 hour ride). You will have an hour walk from the dock on Sun Island to the Estancia EcoLodge, our home for the evening. Sun Island is worshiped as the birthplace of Manco Kápac and Mama Ocllo, the first founders of the Inca empire. With your guide, tour the Pilkokaina Palace, the Inca’s Fountain, and the 200 stairs of Yumani. You will have a traditional atapi lunch (a picnic with local dishes).

In the afternoon, hike to Challapampa on the north part of the island to see Chinkana (Labyrinth), a sacred Inca temple and visit the community. Return to La Estancia for dinner and to enjoy the sunset on Lake Titicaca.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
