Lake Titicaca straddles the Peru-Bolivia border and is set high up in the Andes. It is the world’s highest navigable lake and also a place of great spiritual importance. In Andean mythology the lake is the birthplace of civilization, where the Incan god Viracocha rose from the water to create the sun, moon, stars and all living beings.
