| Taken by Aracely | No Comments » | Photo of the Day

Isla del Sol is an island in the southern part of Lake Titicaca and belongs to Bolivia. Geographically, the terrain is harsh; it is a rocky, hilly island without any motor vehicles or paved roads on the island. The main economic activity of the approximately 800 families on the island is farming, fishing and tourism.

These farming terrace were built to capture the water on the hills rather than running off. During our visit we took a 2 hour boat from Copacabana, Bolivia to the Northern tip of Isla del Sol and trekked to the Southern tip. For more pictures of our trek click on the picture below.
