LA PAZ TO LAKE TITICACA DAY TOUR – OVERVIEW

In this La Paz to Lake Titicaca day tour, you can observe the contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana and the beliefs of the Aymara culture. At Cerro Calvario, you can find Aymara Yatiris (masters) performing spiritual cleansings called “challas” or coca-leaf readings. From here, you can see a spectacular view of the town, lake and surrounding mountains.

Also, La Paz to Lake Titicaca Day Tour allows you to visit the Sun Island, where you can see many Incas’ structures to worship the God of the Sun, pre-Columbian terraces and the fountain of youth in Inca mythology.

Besides, you can visit the Island of the Moon, also known as Koati Island. At the time of the Inca Empire, the island of the moon had a temple called the Palace of the Virgins of the Sun or Iñakuyu, where the so-called Virgins of the Sun lived. This site was an acllahuasi or house of the women chosen, where they learned several trades, especially weaving.

LA PAZ TO LAKE TITICACA DAY TOUR – ITINERARY

Transfer to Copacabana:

Pick up at 09:00 hrs from the lobby of your hotel (booked on your own). Transport from La Paz to Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca (duration: 3 ½ – 4 hours, altitude: 3,840m / 12,595ft).

Tour of Copacabana:

You will start your tour by visiting the Basilica; a stark, white, Moorish-looking building decorated with Portuguese-style blue tiles and rounded domes. The treasure inside is the Shrine de la Virgen de Copacabana — a statue carved in the 15th century which is said to be responsible for countless miracles. It is also said that if she is removed, Lake Titicaca will rise in rebellion and flood the town. It is worth noting that in contrast to the strong Catholic influences found in Copacabana, you will also find Aymara Yatiris (masters) performing spiritual cleansings called “challas” or coca-leaf readings.

Lake Titicaca Tour – Sun island and Pilkokaina ruins:

After your tour of Copacabana, you will transfer by boat to the Port of Pilkokaina in the southern part of Sun Island on Lake Titicaca–legendary birthplace of the Inca Empire. Here, you will enjoy a traditional lunch, in the open air, called Apthapi before continuing on your tour. After lunch, enjoy a smooth uphill walk with amazing views of the lake and a visit to the Inca ruins of Pilkokaina Palace along the way.

Then, you will start your walk down to the Port of Yumani. Along the way, you will visit the Escalera del Inca, a stairway leading to the Inca Fountain. It was once believed to be a fountain of youth, and a place where ceremonies dedicated to water and insemination of earth took place.

After the tour, you will take a boat back to Copacabana (duration: 1 hour). Return to your hotel.
