Lake Titikaka

Lake Titikaka, located 70 km west of the city of La Paz, covers an area of 8 300 km². It is fed by meltwaters from the glaciers in the Apolobamba and Royal or La Paz Cordilleras. The colossal peaks of the Bolivian Andes covered with eternal snow rise majestically near the northern bank of the Titikaka.

Copacabana lies in a bay graced by the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Copacabana. There are other important pre-Hispanic sites to be visited there, as well, such as Kusijata, the Inca’s Gallows and Intikala, among others.
The Island of the Sun in the Greater Lake is one of the most interesting sites in the area. It houses important archeological remains, such as the Yamani Staircase.
The Island of the Moon, about one hour by launch from the Island of the Sun, and known also by its native name of Koati, is dedicated to worship.

Access 

A paved highway takes visitors from the city of La Paz to the Strait of Tiquina. After crossing the Strait by launch, it is about a 4-hour drive to the town of Copacabana.
The Islands of the Sun and the Moon can be reached in about an hour and a half by river transportation. Tourist agencies offer tours of the area.
