Lake Titicaca, Uros, Reed Islands, Peru

Posted in Globe Treking by Ben Brown Photography on July 30, 2013

Lake Titicaca is a lake in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. By volume of water, it is the largest lake in South America

It is often called the highest navigable lake in the world, with a surface elevation of 3,812 m (12,507 ft). Although this refers to navigation by large boats, it’s generally considered to mean commercial craft. For many years the largest vessel afloat on the lake was the 2,200-ton, 260-foot (79 m), SS Ollanta.
