La Paz – Copacabana & Island of the Sun
Lake Titicaca, regarded as the highest navigable lake in the world (3850 m) is located to the east of the city of La Paz. The ancient cultures that settled around it called it “The Sacred Lake”, because its waters were vital for their survival. Copacabana is at present one of the most populated centres on the shores of the lake. One and a half hours by boat from Copacabana is the beautiful Island of the Sun, which owes its importance to the pre-Columbian archaeological ruins that are scattered over the island. In addition according to legend this island is considered as the cradle of the Inca Empire.
