ISLA FLOTANTE DE URUS MEDIO DÍA

The floating islands of the Uros are a set of floating promontories, prepared from totora and stand on a portion of the surface of Lake Titicaca. Its inhabitants are the uros, an ancestral town that is currently distributed on the plateau of Collao and that in Peru inhabit the floating islands located in the bay of Puno. The subsistence in the floating islands is based on a culture linked to the lake and the totora that springs from the bottom of the lake. The construction of these islands is made by weaving the totora in the areas where it grows more dense, forming a natural layer which the uros call Khili; on this layer they build their houses, also of a mesh woven of totora to which they denominate mat. Each house is one room and they cook outdoors to avoid fires.

Our excursion to the Floating Islands of the Uros begins in the morning with the pick up of our clients from their respective hotels in Puno.

It is said that the Uros have inhabited these islands for hundreds of years and that they came here to protect themselves from the Collas and Incas tribes that constantly threatened the people of these areas. The man of the Uros knew how to remove the abundant reed totora existing insitu, join it in large quantities and then join them to form small islands as platforms. They also used this same material to build their cabins and boats, thus creating their own world.
