Taquile, is a fascinating island on the Lake Titicaca. It is 45km from Puno. It is about seven km long and one km wide and has several hills with Inca terracing. The scenery of the island is beautiful. The soil is a deep earthy red color which in the strong highland sunlight, contrasts magnificently against the intense blue of the lake. The backdrop of the snow-capped Cordillera Real on the far side completes a splendid picture. The people wear colorful traditional clothes which they make themselves, they speak Quechua rather than the Aymara language of most Titicaca Indians, maintain a strong sense of group individuality and don't often marry with non-Taquile people.
