Lake Titicaca, located in the Altiplano between Peru and Bolivia, is the highest commercially navigable lake in
the world, at 3,821m above sea level. It is also South America's largest freshwater lake, with a surface area
of 8,300 square kilometres. The lake has forty-one islands, notably the Amantani, the Taquili, as well as the
Isla del Sol (sun Island, next page), an important settlement east of the Andes range during the pre-
Columbian time. Today, Inca ruins on the island are well preserved.
