This island is quite rugged , hilly and beautiful. The view from the top looking towards the eastern Andes in Bolivia was of mind-altering beauty from the water color to the skies. There is even a soccer field in this place. I couldn't imagine playing that kind game at this almost 13,000ft elevation. Lol!! We had a trout lunch there,... More

We came here with a tour group that left from Puno, which i highly recommend. This was a fantastic experience and the best trout ive ever had! We enjoyed a long hike up to the top of one section of the island. The island is a long longer than what you see if you only come for a day; youll... More

We stopped on this island as part of a tour. It is so beautiful, I wish I could have stayed longer. Due to the altitude it was hard work walking uphill, but well worth the effort. There was a crafts market with knitted and woven goods, the sales from which benefited the whole community. The island felt like a little... More

This was a great visit with the local inhabitants of this beautiful island. Be warned the walk up to the top of the island is very strenuous and not for the faint of heart. The locals were so very receptive to our visit and fixed a fabulous meal of quinoa soup, lake trout and veggies. So glad I got to... More

It was quite a hike up this stone walkway. Our group stopped several times. Wonderful lunch waiting at the top. I recommend the fish. Beautiful views. Informative people. Did not get to see the rest of the island but we were told there are some Inca ruins on the other side of the island.

After arriving by boat, we hiked up to a home where we enjoyed a nice lunch. (Rainbow trout from the area) Wonderful views - including the snow-capped mountains of Bolivia.

We did the 2 days tour and we visited the Uros islands, Amantani and Taquile. We both agreed that visiting Taquile was not worth it at all. The guide left us in the main city square and then we had far too much time to visit the 'artesania' shoop...eating there is super expensive as well so I don't recommend it.... More

We spent here like 3 hours, however 1 hour is for eating, the rest you're free to this the small attractions that are here (a small museum) and the local market. I think Amantani is better than taquile due its originality.

What a breathtaking view of the lake from high up! Remember to listen to your body and if you think you have health problems such as heart or asthma, do not tempt to climb but stay along the lake as it is a strenuous climb but worthwhile! I find if you climb steady and never stop, it helps! Along the... More
