FROM SUNSET TO SUNRISE ON THE SACRED LAKE TITICACA
2 DAYS: PUNO - HUATAJATA - LA PAZ
The two countries are connected by imagination, living culture and the lake. A two-day trip that connects you to mysticism and history; it reveals the future as you lie beneath the stars to the rhythm of a magical journey through the constellations.
Day 01 PUNO-LAKE TITICACA-COPACABANA-MOON ISLAND-SUN ISLAND-CRUISE TO HUATAJATA
Journey by road from La Paz to Copacabana on the shore of Lake Titicaca, where you will visit the Sanctuary of the Black Virgin. Then, a hydrofoil direct to The Moon Island to visit the Temple of the Virgins of the Sun or Iñak Uyu, which remains unspoiled. The second destination is The Sun Island, where you can take the Great Inca Stairway to the Sacred Spring: its underground waters grant youth and eternal happiness. Lunch is served in Uma Kollu Archaeological Restaurant. Afterwards there is a visit to the small handicrafts market, followed by a boat trip to Huatajata to see the Andean Roots Eco-Village, the Altiplano Museum, clay igloos and the Urus Chipayas funeral towers. Finally, a meeting with the Limachi family, builders of the RA II and Tigris, vessels used in expeditions to cross the Atlantic.
In the evening there will be a son et lumière called the Mystical World of the Kallawayas, involving well-known Bolivian shamans who believe that the soul must be cured before the body. Our Kallawaya Tata Banjo blesses the travellers and reads the coca leaves. A welcome aperitif and a candle-lit dinner. Visit to Alajpacha Native Observatory to learn about the Andean cosmovision and observe the southern constellations. Stay the night at the Inca Utama Hotel & Cultural Resort.
