Amazing Floating Village Of Lake Titicaca

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Imagine waking up and then see the world float past our window, what the disaster is happening? A tidal wave or storm nightmare has hit our house? Or is this just an ordinary day in the bed of grass floating on a lake Titicaca. Located at an altitude of 3812 meters in the Peruvian desert, here there are 40 floating islands. Originally created by the Uros people of Peru from Inca times, beautiful islands are used for refuge and shelter from the war that never stopped in their homeland. Uros tribe, this way, can really make difficult to be reached by the aggressor, and because it worked so well for their society for centuries, there seems no reason to move to the mainland.
