The Lake with the Funny Name

A travel blog entry by eliswift4


I must say that Lake Titicaca was probably our most disappointing stop on the trip, which is a shame. We actually got quite a number of excellent pictures from the two days we spent there, but really only enjoyed about half a day's worth of the activities we did. And I don’t mean to sound like a travel snob, but since travelling is all I&# …

Puno & Lake Titicaca

A travel blog entry by esteban.y.inga


Op woensdag 9 november vertrokken we 's ochtends met de bus naar Puno (grensstad aan het Titicaca-meer). We namen een touristische bus van Cruz del Sur, die een 4-tal tussenstops maakt aan interessante bezienswaardigheden onderweg.

Lake Titicaca

A travel blog entry by ness010

Last Stop Before Bolivia

A travel blog entry by sheerin09

Puno is the largest city in the Southern Altiplano and is located on the shores of Lake Titicaca at 3,800m above sea level. In the past, it was an …

    Small hostel that had a clean room and hot water, but most of the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful in terms of information about how to do things around the lake, etc. Small, uncomfortable bed
