Then, in Raqchi, we´ll admire the colossal Incan Temple to Wiracocha; The Creator of the Andean World, after which we´ll enjoy a delicious Buffet-Lunch in the countryside town of Sicuani.

In the afternoon, we´ll stop at La Raya´s Vantage Point, at 4,335 meters (14,222 ft.) above sea level, to appreciate beautiful Andean landscapes. Then, our last stopover will be in Pucará, better known as the “Temple to Fertility”, before moving on to the city of Puno, located on the Collao High Plateau, where Lake Titicaca stands-out as the Incas´ Sacred Place of Origin, and shelters natural and artificial islands.

Apart from the World´s Highest Navigable Lake, Puno possesses important tourist attractions, like the pre-Incan and Incan inverse cone-like cylindrical funeral towers called “Chullpas”, and its Colonial churches, among others. Furthermore, its people are proud of their Quechua and Aymara ancestry, expressed through their traditional folklore that overflows, every year, with dances and rites, during the festivities in honor to the Virgin María de la Candelaria (Candle Mass).
