UROS TAQUILE ISLANDS TOUR
Centuries ago the small indigenous Uros tribe conceived of the islands as a way to isolate and protect themselves from rival tribes, the Collas and the Incas.
The Uros people harvested the reeds in the shallows of the lake, bundled them together tightly and built floating island platforms complete with reed houses and canoes, creating in this way their own little world, a traditional Quechua speaking community, full of ancient agricultural terraces.
Our clients are collected from their hotels at 09:00 am and then transferred down to the harbor. At the harbor we will embark on a motorized boat that will take us to the tribes of the Uros people.
The boat ride last roughly 30 minutes and offers fine views of the Lake Titicaca, as well as from the surrounding mountains. Upon our arrival our group we will be welcomed by a group of islanders, who afterwards will show us around. Our guide will explain important aspects of the live of these people and afterwards you will go for a ride in a small reed boat made by the Uros people.
The reed boat will take you from one island to another, so that you may meet other locals from another island. The distance from one island to another is not long. In Uros you will be able to purchase magnificent handicraft made by the Uros women. Their little souvenir shops are located outdoor and display an array of products elaborated mainly made by hand.
12:00 hrs. We will return to the city of Puno. Upon your arrival at the harbor you will be picked up by a Mystery Peru representative and then transferred to your hotel. End of our service.
