No travel to Bolivia or Peru would be perfect without visiting the sapphire-blue waters of mystical Lake Titicaca, with the snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Real as backdrop. The world’s highest navigable lake, at 12642 ft/3856 ms, played for 2 millennia a leading role in Andean beliefs and was at the heart of the most sophisticated Andean civilisations. It is still scattered with Inca remains and the people who live on the shores of the lake still consider the lake as sacred and make offerings to her. The best known of Titikaka’s islands are those of the Sun and the Moon, places where, according to Indian Legend, the sun and the moon sought refuge during times of flood. According to the most supported legend, the Inca Empire began at the Sun Island, the Inca couple Manco Kapac and Mama Ocllo appeared here and founded the Sun Empire. Supporting this legend are some important pre-Columbian archeological remains on this island.
