Description

(Tour Uros floating Islands)

The Uros floating islands are located in the bay of Puno, 10 km from the port of Puno (20 to 30 minutes of navigation). You will have an unforgettable experience knowing more about the life and history of this fascinating culture, This tour lasts 3 hours.

This Culture was one of the oldest ethnic groups that inhabited the plateau, dedicating themselves to fishing and bird hunting depending entirely on the Totora reed (Aquatic Plant Lake), plant with which they build their islands, houses, rafts and also them It serves as food and fuel.

The floating islands are built of huge blocks of Totora roots, the reason why that can float is due to the porosity of the blocks helped by gases produced by decomposition. Then these blocks are joined and anchored with eucalyptus sticks, the inhabitants placed a new layer of reeds every 20 days.
