Peruvian Secrets Exclusives
The Mysteries of Lake Umayo
After breakfast your guide will collect you in our private vehicle from your hotel to do a fantastic and very different tour...
Your journey starts as you leave Puno behind and head off the main road into the countryside. The first secret location is a hidden waterfall that is unique to this normally flat Plato region. Offering you the chance to walk behind the cascade it is truly a stunning location (water levels are varied according the season). Continuing the journey into this remote region we head to the community of Tiquillaka on the banks of Lake Umayo.
Here your small row boat will be ready to cross the clear waters to the Island reserve of Antioquia, set in the centre of the lake. On arrival you will land at a convenient location for your discovery on foot, your guide will explain the secrets, traditions and mysteries of the island where you will observe vicuñas, guanacos, rabbits, deer, and guinea pigs. While you enjoy the stunning scenery your guide will prepare our very special picnic lunch and refreshments.
Rejoining our boat you will be rowed across the lake to the other side where you can see the remarkable ruins of Sillustani. Your guide will explain the history and culture of this place before your driver will meet you to take the return journey back to Puno.
