Lake Titicaca is one of Peru's most distinctive lakes as it is the world's highest navigable lake. This lake, based near Puno City, is famous for its artificial islands made of totora plants. 

The Totora is a plant that grows in the wild. It also grows in ponds and swamps at altitudes from sea level to 4000 meters. It’s also called “chullu”.

 It grows near Puno, above Lake Titicaca. One of the key expanding locations is the floating islands of the Uros on Lake Titicaca. Surprisingly, there are different places to stay on these islands. You’ll also find places along the lake's shore. You may choose one of these options based on your preferences.
