3 Day Titicaca Lake

On what we know as Peru, there were diverse cultures in the north, center, east and south of their regions. All these cultures showed their dominance to the elements of the earth and fought among themselves to remain independent. However, in the South East, it would begin by the year 1200 A.D the formation of the Inca empire which would bring together all the existing cultures under its dominion.

This Titicaca Lake 3 Days tour, will take us to the legend, where the history of the Incas began with the arrival of a couple that emerge from Lake Titicaca. The couple were wearing ornaments and vestments that impressed the people who inhabited the lake. Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo were this couple, who dedicated themselves to teach the local people how to organize and learn fieldwork for their better survival. Time after, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo, under the order of god Wiracocha was sent to seek new fertile land to found his new Empire. With a stick-shaped gold bar, Manco Capac hit several grounds on his travel, and what he thought could be good soil the gold bar did not sink. Until the final moment arrived and the gold stick sank and he founded its city, name Cuzco (navel or centre).

Traveling to this legendary Titicaca Lake 3 Days tour will show us its islands, people and traditions as well as the beauty existing at this incredible hight. Live with us the dream of tracking the steps of the Inca legend.
