lake Titicaca is situated at 3.820 meters of altitude, being the highest

blue waters, you can see the Andes Cordillera on the horizon. It's also
possible to visit the islands inhabitated by communities mostly untouched
by progress. Copacabana is a small city situated on the margins of Lake
Titicaca, and distant only 9 km from the peruvian boarder. During the Inca
Empire, human sacrifice took place in Copacabama, in honour of the Gods.
Salar is a desert formed by the evaporation of salted water lagoons over
thousands of years. Another theory says that the desert of salt resulted
from the formation of the Andes Cordillera, with moving tectonic plates
that separated a part of the ocean, which stayed to the east of the
Cordilleras and slowly evaporated. The Salar of Uyuni is the biggest of
the planet, with an area of 12 thousand km square, at 3.600 meters of
altitude. During the winter, you can travel over the salar for 100 km in a
straight line, seeing the amazing contrast between the white Salar and the
blue of the sky. If you travel during the summer, when the water from the
Andes floods the salar, the water over the salt reflects the sky and the
lanscape around it, making up a stunning scenery.
