Pariti / Kalauta / Pata Patani / Chua / La PazAfter breakfast on board, continue navigation enjoying the overwhelming panorama of Lake Titicaca towards the Andean communities of Pariti, Kalauta and Patapatani located on the shores of the smaller portion of the Lake known as "Wiñay Marca". First Pariti Island, where we visit a typical local house that will allow appreciating the real livelihood of aymara people in the highlands. In this same island, local people started finding various ceramic pieces during their daily activities (digging for constructions, plowing to cultivate their products, etc.). This awoke curiosity among the villagers and archaeologists as well, so archaeological diggings started and numerous pieces of fine ceramics dated to Tiwanaku culture were found. The ones that stand out are figures of wildlife such us tigers, monkeys, etc. which leads to think that Pariti was a ceremonial site visited by peoples from beyond the Andes. All these objects are currently in display at the Pariti Museum, which is part of the itinerary. Continue now towards Kalauta navigating in typical fishing barges that will allow a unique experience where rowing among the totorales (reed plants) gives a special sense of peace and mysticism that only this pristine portion of the lake has. In Kalauta one can appreciate a great deal of funeral towers. Kalauta was once an ancient stone town and the largest prehispanic necropolis. Here you'll enjoy a snack. Then, the navigation continues towards Pata Patani where the community welcomes tourists at the port handing them garlands made of flowers by themselves and makes them actively participate in their dances to the sound of typical instruments. This community is very rooted to ancient traditions and still makes a livelihood of fishing. A visit to the Pata Patani Museum is also in the itinerary; this museum shelters the oldest best preserved Andean mummy called Tani. Afterwards, return to the catamaran to enjoy buffet lunch on board while sailing in the Titicaca Lake continues. End with a land transfer to La Paz.
