We visit a small island “Foroba” on the way to Uros where we will have a 360° panoramic view of the Titicaca National Reserve and where we will observe different native birds before reaching Uros.By afternoon, we will have a totally unique experience, go fishing, cut the reeds, we will collect eggs and have demonstrations on how to build traps for birds.
