UROS FLOATING ISLANDS TOUR ( HALF DAY)

Uros-Puno

 Uros Floating Islands are man made islands out of reeds. The reeds grow naturally on the banks of the lake, the Uros people take them and form islands out of them, by constantly adding reeds on the surface. These islands often float on the lake Titicaca, that is why they are also named Floating Islands.

The islands (there are over 40 of them), are populated by hard living people, who survive by fishing and nowadays because of the increasing tourism. Their handcrafts are wonderful, and the people are very hospitable.
