Puno

 

Puno is a small town located on the shores of Lake Titicaca in Peru. Many tourists visit this place as it is conveniently on the route between Cusco and La Paz or Arequipa and offers the visitor some unique sites to visit. The most famous of those attractions, located on Lake Titicaca itself but accessible from Puno, are the Uros Floating Islands. These Islands are entirely made from a locally grown reed called Totora and the Uros people have a rich and interesting history. Further beyond Uros Islands, still on Lake Titicaca, are the islands of Taquile and Amantani. Taquile is the most visited of these and offers visitors a chance to learn about its customs and way of life by offering "homestay" tours wereby different particpating families take it in turns to host tourists in their houses offering a chance to really get to know the locals way of life.

A short journey away from Puno is a site called Sillustani situated on the shores of Lake Umayo. Here you can see some ancient burial towers called chullpas that make for an interesting half day trip often combined with a visit to the local farmers house to learn about their way of life.
