Strait of Tiquina

The Strait of Tiquina is the passage that connects the larger and smaller parts of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia.


The strait is across at its narrowest point. It joins the upper lake, Lago Chicuito, and the lower (and smaller) lake, Lago Pequeno, or "little lake". The entire lake is called Lake Titicaca and is the largest lake, by volume, in South America. It is situated on the border of Bolivia and Peru.

The small population of Tiquina depends to a good extent in the passers, i.e tourists, that visit the place and generosity from these visitors towards the always well-hearted people of the high-plateau is always welcome.
