The Uros are located in the Titikaka Lake bay, about 6 km. from Puno Port. There are around 40 scattered islands built with totora reed (an aquatic plant), constituting an important archipelago inhabited by 10 to 20 families. At 3,810 m.a.s.l., we will visit two islands of the Uros to appreciate the unique beauty of the place, as well as the culture and lifestyle of the locals of millenary origin.

Even today they keep their ancestral traditions, with a large Aymara influence, all linked to the totora reed. The subsistence of the Uros is based on fishing, hunting and gathering of eggs, complementing their economy with the sale of handicrafts.
