One of the tourist destinations for the Dakar will be Titicaca Lake. We have developed five projects that benefit the municipalities of Copacabana, Chúa and Taraco, where there is a thousands-years-old culture of chiripa, as well as a museum and all the basic arrangements for the national or foreign tourist can stay, noted the authority.

According to Alanoca, with the support of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), through the Vice Ministry of Tourism, Sajama, Yungas, Madidi, Salar de Uyuni and now Lake Titicaca destinations were strengthened.

The Titicaca is fundamental part of the birth of the ancient civilization tiwanaku. The Incas considered it later as the birthplace of his people and deities.

During years of exploration, in its waters of more than 200 meters deep have found sheets of gold, bones, precious stones, ceramics with representations of felines and silver pieces.
