SAS Travel Peru

Overview

The lifestyle of the Aymara is one where men, women and children live without the superficial trappings of western civilisation. Working in unison with the land, lake, family and neighbors. Here, to be lazy is a sin. People will constantly be working their fields, women attending to daily chores and dressed in the most beautiful traditional garments, the men will be walking the trails drop spinning or knitting intricate patterns into their world famous woven garments. Each tells a story and you will be fascinated by each while you eat probably the best trout you have ever tasted on Taquile Island before returning to Puno!

At 3800 meters above sea level, just walking from the shore to the home of your host is "breathtaking"! You will be reassured just to go at your own pace and your "mama" will wait for you, but she will always be at least a few steps in front!

Again at you own pace and obvious path so you may choose to skip the football and start in advance so you actually get there before sunset!
