The Puno Extension, 3 days and 2 nights
Set off early morning for the long drive to Puno in your comfortable vehicle , passing through many different landscapes, glimpsing lakes, mountains, plains and wildlife. Optional lunch stop for a delicious buffet and then a visit to Raqchi, an outstanding Inca archaeological site.
In the late afternoon, early evening we get our first sight of Lake Titicaca, stretching to the horizon. We descend into Puno and our comfortable Hotel (Hotel Buho or similar) in the city centre.
Early morning we are collected from our hotel for our Day Tour on the lake, in a fast modern motor launch with a multilingual guide. First stop is the Floating Islands of Uros,( seen left) where we are shown how the islands are constructed from reeds and maintained, and also the unique handicrafts produced by the island people. Then on to the Island of Taquile where demonstrations of local culture are followed by a delicious lunch. In the late afternoon we head back to Puno where we are dropped off at our hotel.
On our last morning we leave Puno and head for Silustani, a site well worth visiting a little off the main road. We spend some time here exploring and admiring the lake views, before continuing our journey back to Cusco which we reach early evening.
