From beautiful Puno to the reed beds visible in the dry season, the lake offers visual and cultural experiences unlike no other. From communities living on reed islands to those with an almost Greek island lifestyle, the lake offers experiences like no other. Utterly amazing experience!

I have been told that Lake Titicaca is much more beautiful from the Bolivian side than from Peru. I saw it from Puno, which is a somewhat dirty town, and from Suasi island. It is a very large lake, and some of the scenery is beautiful. It is also very high and you risk suffering from altitude sickness, and if... More

The Bolivian side is prettier! Isla del Sol is definitely worth a visit. But all in all the lake is amazingly beautiful.

I'd never heard of Lake Titicaca before this adventure, but suffice to say It will never leave my memory. Landscapes to admire and stare at for unhealthy amounts of time, culture and life to put a smile on any ones face. Soak up everything that this fantastic place has to serve up, there are no words that I can find... More

Can't recommend this place for a visit. Cusco and even Lima was much better. Puno don't have what to offer to the tourists. Titicaca is nothing extra ordinary - simple dirty lake with the rubbish shores. Just for one day visit and no more!

Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world not only takes your breath away in beauty, but also due to its elevation. Best to take some Diamox before visiting so you can have maximum enjoyment when visiting. The lake is very calm and is used to get to various other points of interests (ie, Uros Floating Islands) and restaurants... More

If you are up in the Andean region it is hard to miss lake titicaca. It is a big beautiful lake with lots of different activity and just beautiful no matter where you see it from.

This is a must do when in Puno. A beautiful Lake which you can charter a boat and see the islands and the floating island. Get off and see the locals and thier way of living and culture. A must do and a favorite tourists attraction. On a clear day you can see Bolivia and the snow covered Andies.
