What to bring to Lake Titicaca

Since this lake is located at a high altitude the climate is usually cold and the sun affects the skin more aggressively, so we recommend:
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat or cap
  • Warm clothing
  • Comfortable shoes (if possible hiking shoes)
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Raincoat / waterproof poncho
  • Passport
  • Medication to avoid altitude sickness (in case you consider it necessary)

Where does the tour Lake Titicaca start

If you plan to arrive from Arequipa, the most common option is to take the tour to the Colca Canyon and on the second day board a bus from Chivay directly to Puno, where you will arrive around 6:00 pm. If you plan to arrive from Cusco, you can do so in a tourist bus that has different, regular stops along the route at various archaeological sites and tourist attractions (10 hours ride). Alternatively, you can also board a direct bus on a route of roughly 6.5 hours that you can book with several companies, including Cruz del Sur. If you plan to arrive in Puno coming from Bolivia, you can opt for different companies that offer the route Copacabana - Puno or La Paz - Puno.
