Uros Floating Islands

The ancient tribe of the Uros precede the Incas and have long made their home on the tranquil waters of Lake Titicaca. According to legend the Uros existed before the birth of the sun and they are shrouded in mythology. The unique floating islands are constructed from layers of rotora reeds that are constantly topped up with new layers to replace reeds at the bottom which rot away. Up to ten families can live on an island and the islands are expanded to accommodate additional members of the family.
