    Are we running out of material? OK, here's one.

    Name the island.
    What country does it belong to?
    What is its elevation (approx.)

  • 50+ views and no responses. Guess it's time for a few more pics:

    Empire of the Incas and Peru, Lake Titicaca, Tequile Island. Peru 12,552'

  • You're on the right track, but wrong island and wrong country of ownership. Elevation about 500 ft greater from my source. That should narrow it down a bit.

  • It has to be Isla del Sol, Bolivia then. Elevation on lake surface was as AlanS said.

  • edited April 2020

    Yumani, Bolivia, the Inca Stairs. The stairs add 200 meters in elevation, at the top.

  • Good job, Sam.

    While most of the gang was shopping trinkets from the natives, I hiked up to the top of the island. Nothing up there besides a cell tower and a few small farms along the way, but it was refreshing. Living at altitude had its advantages on this tour.

    Lake Titicaca (don't you love that name?) is the highest commercially navigable lake in the world.

    Evidently they changed the tour. The current tour goes to Tequile Island. I didn't see or was too lazy to check the second and third photo and terrain. :)

  • I did this trip in 2015.
