UROS - AMANTANY ISLANDS
You will be picked up from your hotel around 8:20 am, after 2 hours motorboat you will arrive at the Uros island. Fishermen and hunters inhabit the floating islands of the Uros. The residents of the Uros use the cattail, a type of rush, which grows in the lake, to create the conditions that ensure the islands stay afloat. The dense roots that the plants develop support the island.
The roofs are waterproof and the houses are extremely humid because of the surrounding water. At present they speak Quechua and Aymara., then you will visit Amantany Island on Lake Titicaca.
