From Puno, we make the 3-hour journey by private transport to Copacabana (Change of car and guide in Kasani, border Peru – Bolivia) with beautiful views of Lake Titicaca along the way Copacabana is a pleasant town on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Nestled between two hills at 3,880 meters above sea level, some believe that the name Copacabana is derived from the Aymara “kota kawana”, meaning “view of the lake”. The crystal-clear waters surrounded by white capped mountains provide an extraordinary setting.
Copacabana is famous for its large 16th century cathedral, a dazzling white Moorish-style cathedral with domes and colourful ceramic tiles that dominates the tiny town. The church houses the famous “Virgen Morena”. We stroll around the town and visit the church before taking a motorized boat to the Island of the Moon. Here we visit the ruins of Iñak Uyu Inca temple, later we depart to the legendary Island of the Sun. On arrival in Huacani we hike for around 45 minutes to the lodge, our accommodation for the night. A typical highland lunch (aptapi) and dinner are included today.
