Lake TiticacaLake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world, lying at 12500 feet above sea level in Peruvian Andes. Its amazing shining waters contrast with the red and brown hills of the mountains creating a unique picture. There are over 40 floating reed islands on the lake inhabited by an interesting culture called the Uros, whose lifestyle and community is built upon reeds that grow in the ample shallows of the lake. The Uros live in reed huts, sail in reed boats and produce unique reed handicrafts. Besides floating islands, Lake Titicaca has also many real ones such as Sun Island that lure tourists with many ancient Inca monuments.
