The Uros Floating Islands

Tour description:

The Uros floating islands become on one of the most singular attractions of world tourism, it is located north of Puno city Bay 6 km from the lake port. The Uros name was used to name a very particular ethnic group that coexisted on Lake Titicaca with the Incas, Aymaras and possibly the most ancient civilizations. Why are floating? They are built by dense vegetation, formed by the Totora, the llachu, for this they seek thick reeds, and over time, interweave their roots forming a natural layer called Khili, the thickness of the islands is one to two meters.

This allows them to build their own rooms with the same material. What do the Uros people do? The people of the islands are dedicated to hunting and fishing, dissecting animals (birds and fish), they build little totora reed rafts, in the same way women knit wool fabrics and tapestry. They have an admirable expertise from young children to fish and drive reed boats. The Uros food is based on traditional fishing carachi, mackerel and hunting birds. The reed is also part of their diet
