Walks and Hikes


Walking towards Yampupata you will pass several points of interest and each of them could be a separate destination in itself. The scenic walk to the village of Yampupata (to the very point of the peninsula towards the island of the sun) takes you about 4 to 5 hours. After 3 Km. you will pass the village of Kusijata at your right hand side with the archaeological site of the “Bath of the Inca” and a tiny museum. After 8 Km. you will notice the little village of “Chani” from where you can access in about 10 minutes the beautiful white beaches of “Playas blancas“.Continuing almost the entire time along the lake shaw, at about 15km from Copacabana you will pass the village of Sicuani, where you find a place for lodging owned by Hilario Paye. He is a rather chatty and photogenic character, who is well worth a chat. Your next destination,18km from Copacabana is Yampupata, from where you have the possibility to cross over to the island of the sun.
