Lake Titicaca

As if La Paz wasn’t high enough, our next stop was Lake Titicaca at 3,812m (12,507 feet). 

We stayed in Copacabana on the Bolivian side (not to be confused with the other Copacabana in Brazil.) Unfortunately, a combination of rain and me feeling the altitude prevented us from exploring Isla del Sol.  Still, Copacabana was a very pleasant if sleepy place to spend a few days.

The morning of our last day, I was feeling a bit better and was able to venture up to the summit of Cerro Calvario.  There was some puffing through the thin area to make it to the top, but I eventually made it and it was beautiful.
