Lake Titicaca - the name just rolls off the tongue doesn`t it! No trip to Bolivia would be complete without visiting Copacabana and the Island of the Sun, on the shores of the highest Lake in the world. The natural beauty of these islands is impossible to describe; you simply have to visit them to appreciate it. The island is famous not only for its sacred Inca Ruins; it boasts breathtaking views of the Cordillera, the shores of Bolivia and Peru, and the Copacabana peninsula. Located in the southern side of Lake Titicaca (3810 meters above sea level), straddled between Peru and Bolivia, the island houses more than one hundred and fifty ancient settlements, and is shrouded in mystery and mythology. Starting in La Paz you will drive across the Altiplano by bus to the village of Copacabana. The next morning you will travel by boat over to the Island of the Sun, where you can experience the exhilarating treks while visiting Inca ruins, temples and intriguing sights. Enjoy a night in the HI-hostel Inka Pacha with unforgettable sundown and sunrise, not to mention the delicious local food! The next morning, travel by boat back to Copacabana and you then have the option to travel by bus back to La Paz, armed with some cherished memories and show-off photos of your time on the sacred Island.
