Bolivia - Lake Titicaca (PDF Chapter)
This is the Lake Titicaca chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bolivia guidebook.
Everything that sits beside the 8400-sq-km Lake Titicaca, from the traditional Aymará villages to the glacier-capped peaks of the Cordillera Real, seems almost humdrum in contrast with the shimmering opal jewel set into the spare altiplano earth. This lake is literally the stuff of legend.
