DAY 1: KASANI – COPACABANA – LAKE TITICACA – LA PAZ

Morning:Copacabana: We will pick you up from Kasani (09:30 am), and head to Copacabana (duration: 20-30 minutes, altitude: 3,840m/ 12,595ft).

Upon arrival to Copacabana, you will visit the Basilica, an imposing white building with Arabic touches, decorated with blue Portugese-style tiles, and topped with dazzling, multicolored domes. Inside is the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Copacabana — a statue carved in the 15th century that is said to be responsible for several miracles. Local legend says that if the statue were to be removed from the Basilica, Lake Titicaca would rise and flood the town in anger. You will also have the option to walk the 12 Stations of the Cross, a Catholic tradition in which every Easter, devotees imitate the path that Jesus walked on his last day in Jerusalem. You will have an hour and a half to explore the town at your own pace, taking in the beautiful architecture, nearby Lake Titicaca, and the breathtaking view from the top of Calvary Hill. You may also run into a Yatiri (shaman) in the street, known for doing spiritual cleanses called challas, reading fortunes with coca leaves, and carrying on the traditions of the native Aymara culture.

Along its cobblestone walkway, you will find many museums, bars, restaurants, and shops selling all manner of different things. Next, we will take you to Plaza España where you can hop on the cablecar towards the southern end of the city and appreciate its beauty from the sky with breathtaking views of Obrajes, Calacoto, and La Florida, several of La Paz’s most beautiful neighborhoods.

One of the many amazing sights in Uyuni is the train graveyard, a place full of abandoned locomotives from the 19th and 20th century. You will have time to explore, so don’t miss out on this great photo op! You will also visit the town of Colchani, where you’ll have a chance to witness an artisinal salt-processing plant. You will see how salt is collected, dried, and turned into the stuff you put on your table everyday. You can even buy some of this unique salt yourself! And don’t miss the ojos de sal, holes in the salt flat where water seeps out from underground springs, and the “salt mountains,” where salt is dried in the sun after its extraction.

The next stop will be Incahuasi Island (also known as Isla Pescado), located in the middle of the salt flats, famous for its giant cactus which can grow to over 10 meters (32 ft.) in height! Lunch will be served on the salt flat for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can also use the unique landscape of the salt plains to take fun photos, playing with proportion and perspective. Show them to your friends and they’ll be sure to get jealous!

NOTE: Incahuasi Island cannot be visited during the rainy season.

After lunch, you will head north to the slopes of Tunupa, a nearby volcano, to visit Pucara Ayque, a Pre-Colombian fort and the mummies within. You will also have a chance to watch the sunset over the plains before returning to your hotel in Colchani.
