I’ve recently know about a wonderful trip, In Puno- Peru. This trip is about making a tour around the Lake Titicaca via bus and cruise. You can start your trip doing various activities in Puno as: The Island Uros Island, which hosts a large number of pre-Incan people who live on 42 self-fashioned floating man-made islets. The Uros use the totora plant to make boats (balsas mats) of bundled dried reeds as well as to make the islands themselves. Also you can visit the Sillustani ruins located 34 km northwest of the city of Puno, on the shores of Lake Umayo. This archaeological complex was a cemetery of Culture Kolla. Established by a group of stone towers called "Chullpas" whose height varies from 10 to 13 meters. Aymara buried where their high priests.
After this visit, you can tour the lake by a great cruise. The activities start sailing to Sun Island, the legendary birth place of the Inca Empire. Visit the Inca Garden, steps and fountain then the Inti Wata Cultural Complex including the Ekako Underground Museum, the traditional medicine and the Titikaka Reed Shipbuilders display centers, visitors have the opportunity to interact with one of the most unspoiled indigenous Titikaka villages through an innovative program organized with the local community sharing rituals, ceremonies, folkloric demonstrations, etc.
You can finally complete the journey and return to Puno, or continue traveling to Bolivia where you will still experiencing the wonders of the Andes.
It is amazing to know so many wonderful places, cultural heritage innate from our past before, where each one lives an unforgettable experience.

I am going to Puno and travel to the Uros.
How many days should I allow?
Did you take a tour or just do your own thing
there are some advices to do your trip.
first is better take at least 3 days to stay in Puno.
second some time is better to take a book in some travel agency. some are very good quality service and low prices
I hope to have been helpful
If you want to do a trip to the floating islands it's very easy to do from Puno. There are loads of tour companies that take motorboats out to them. Personally I'd say just book it when you're there or you may end up paying a lot more to travel agencies than you need to.
If you go in Puno, do not forget to visit the Chulpas in Sillustani. It takes just an hour to go there and the place is really worth a visit!
Take a look for an idea of the wonderful landscapes you could see!
Thanks for the photos, They're are great
