The Gran Hotel Lago is located only 13 min away from the city of Puno, near the Inca Uyo or temple of fertility in the village of Chucuito, on the shores of Lake Titicaca. The GHL has an incredible natural scenario on the Peruvian Andes and majestic views of Lake Titicaca and its surrounding landscapes.
Any dietary requirements must be communicated in advance to the Four Winds Society, once program starts we will not be able to accommodate any special needs.
At Amantani, we spend the night in the homes of the villagers and enjoy their warmth and hospitality. Life in these villages is humble, so accommodations at the villager’s homes are rustic.
