Puno

The high Andean plateau offers a wide choice of incredibly beautiful routes, with farm fields and intense, sky-blue water. If you cycle along Lake Titicaca, you can see the islands and fisherman on their reed rafts. High physical fitness is required, because the average height of the track is roughly 3,500 m.a.s.l.
