Wiñaymarca Archipelago – Anapia Island
Located in the Wiñaymarca Lake or “Minor Lake” of the Lake Titicaca complex, the island archipelago is inhabited by people who maintain their native customs, fishing being one of their main activities. There are ecological plots of native flora unique to the region, abundant fauna, and sand and pebble beaches. Yuspique Island, the biggest of the archipelago, is used by the people of Anapia to breed vicuñas.
You can see crops, vicuña breeding grounds, and archeological remnants, as well as practice trekking, try typical lunches, go on boat rides, and listen to folkloric music.
The local customs are rich and the most outstanding include the Challa, or payment to the earth, the Casarasiri, the town traditional marriage ceremony that lasts three days with the participation of the entire community, and the Rutuchi, or “hair cut”, given to newborns in the presence of their godfathers who usually give money as a gift.
