The Sillustani cape extends to Lake Umayo, where you can visit one of the largest cemeteries in the world, housing almost 100 Chullpas (ancient funery towers).As far as the specifics are concerned, each of these towers are about 12 meters high and the width increase from bottom-up. The dead bodies were mummified and were placed in a position where their back was curved, head bowed down, and limbs pulled towards the chest.

The full day tour to the Islands of Uros and Taquile will commence at 7:00 AM when you will be picked up from your hotel to embark on a memorable full-day boat travel on Lake Titicaca. The Uros are the natives who live on these man-made islands created from totora grown on Lake Titicaca. The natives knit the reeds together to form an organic mat in order to grow thicker reeds. The houses are built on top while the cooking is done outside the homes to avoid fires. After spending an hour at the Island of Uros, you will proceed to the Island of Taquile. Here you will notice that the locals speak Quechua instead of the predominant Aymara. The Island of Taquile was once a part of the Inca Empire and that influence can be seen in the buildings these people make. However, their present attire owes itself to Spanish rule where they were forced to wear peasant clothes.

This is how Peru tours of Lake Titicaca end. Overnight at the Hotel in Puno
