And of course, after having explored a bit of La Paz I continued to Lake Titicaca and the islands Copacabana and to Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun), all very popular destinations for travellers as myself due to its rich inca-history and stunning nature. Isla del Sol is a boat ride away from the main island Copacabana, with Lake Titicacas wonderful deep-blue water you almost forget for a second that you’re not by the sea, but at South Americas largest lake located between Bolivia and Peru at 3800 meters above sea level!
Lake Titicaca is a sacred place for the Inca civilization. According to the Incan mythology, this is the place where the world was created from, where the sun, the stars and the first people were created. Here, many still live as campesinos (peasants), planting & harvesting by hand, using tame mules and llamas as pets and as a means of transport. Sadly, I only did a day trip to these places but I would really recommend anyone who goes to have at least 2 days in order to explore its beauty and diverse culture. It’s a must see if you’re ever in Bolivia. 🙂
