Puno - Uros Island - Lake Titicaca
The must do experiences are included in this fantastic and unforgettable trip
The floating islands of the Uros are an ancestral ethnic group. This group of people has lived on Lake Titicaca since time immemorial. Even today they maintain their original lifestyle, fishing, hunting birds and collecting eggs. But their main skill lies in the manufacture of various articles made of totora reeds, found on the shores and in shallow places of Lake Titicaca. The men are excellent fishermen and the women are expert weavers. These valuable skills have been inherited from generation to generation.
Today, the inhabitants of the Uros islands constitute a population of 2,000 people. They call themselves the Kot-suña, which means people of the lake, and consider themselves the owners of the lake and its waters. They live by fishing and weaving, however, every year they welcome many tourists from different parts of the world. Which has allowed the families to cover important expenses.
