Two day extension with an overnight in Copacabana. Explore Lake Titicaca, a geographic landmark at the crossroads of the Andes and the Andean plateau and the world's highest navigable and South America's largest lake. According to legend, the son of Inti, the sun god, emerged as the first Inca from the waters of Lake Titicaca.
Day 1 : Copacabana Day 2 : Sun Island on Lake Titicaca
Early this morning, transfer by private vehicle with your guide to Copacabana. Visit this picturesque town situated between two mountains and on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Explore the Inca sites outside of the city as well as the cathedral with its dark Virgin of Candelaria statue and museum of European and local religious art. Travelers interested in a workout can climb El Calvario and enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Titicaca and Copacabana. Overnight this evening in Copacabana.
Day 2 Sun Island on Lake Titicaca
1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
We board a boat and head towards Sun Island (1 hour ride). 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. The views from the Sun Island are spectacular.
This afternoon return to Copacabana and continue to La Paz.
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.
