Video: Isla Del Sol, Lake Titicaca

April 29th, 2009 | Thomas | South America, Travel, Video | 1 Comment »

This video shows the beautiful Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun) on Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, the site of the main Inca creation myth – it was here legend has it that Viracocha (the creator god) had his children Manco Kapac and Mama Ocllo spring from the lake and found Cusco and the Inca dynasty.

I took a boat to Isla del Sol from Copacabana, and walked the length of the island during the day – only 7km, but at this altitude (nearly 4,000 metres) it felt three times further!

I apologise in advance for my infantile presenting, I obviously just have no idea whatsoever.
