Machu Picchu with Mohanji
Lake Titicaca is a beautiful and much-venerated sacred lake that lies on the border between Peru and Bolivia, near Copacabana. According to Incan mythology, it was from Lake Titicaca that the creator god Viracocha rose up to create the sun, moon, stars, and first human beings.
The Floating Islands of Uros, consists of residents from pre-Incan Aymaran descent. Their custom is to weave everything out of reeds, the islands themselves, including their tiny homes, their beds and even their boats.
One of the most beautiful things about the lake is the absence of development along its shoreline. Titicaca remains the Aymara’s inland sea and its edges are still occupied by farmsteads and well-worked fields. Titicaca is big, but you can always see its banks – tall, bare cliffs and grassy hillsides; mountains and sandy pinnacles.
It’s as wide as a sea and as deep as a canyon; as enticingly blue as the Mediterranean but as cold as a Scottish Loch. You can’t swim in it, you can’t really sail across it, and you can’t ever quite know it. Yet it’s one of the most peaceful places on Earth, providing solace, hope and stability.

Located 3,812 meters above sea level and home to 41 islands, Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lake. Its borders are shared by Bolivia and Peru; Etymologically, Lake Titicaca has been translated to mean “Rock Puma;” as the lake’s shape looks similar to a puma hunting a rabbit.
According to an ancient Incan legend, life on earth began when the god Viracocha rose out of the lake and created our world. Meanwhile, energy healers consider the lake to be one of the most spiritual and powerful places on Earth; citing it as the largest energy vortex portal in South America.
Also, you will be visiting Uros Islands and Taquile Island, spending considerable time in the lap of Mother nature under loving arms of Mohanji.

Amaru Muru & Sillustani
Amaru Muru – A huge mysterious door-like structure in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru near Lake Titicaca, has long been revered by local indians as the “City of the Gods.” Legends say that this place is connected to Mount Kailash where there is another door like structure appearing in the nearby mountains. This confirms the belief that the places are interconnected and indeed act as portals.
Sillustani, which sits at about 13, 500 feet, is a peninsula on the shores of Lake Umayo, not far from Puno, Peru. On this peninsula can be found chullpas, ancient towers—some circular and others rectangular in shape—that do seem to have been used as tombs, but were also used as temples. Just as the remains of popes and saints are buried at the Vatican, the remains of what can only be assumed were important people were buried at Sillustani. It is believed that the site was used by both Incan and pre-Incan peoples.
