These towers are located on a small peninsula surrounded by the Umayo lagoon where we can appreciate its natural beauty as well as architecture and engineering of the time.

Then we continue to Amantani place where you stay in a family house, after lunch in the family house, we will meet and walk to the top of the island. After one hour walking you´ll get to Pachatata the Pre-Inca temple, which is probably the best place to see the immense width of Lake Titicaca.
