Llachon Community

The Capachica peninsula separates the Bay of Puno (or shallow section of the Lake) from the main Lake, or Lago Mayor.

Valentin, the head of the Llachón community is a very entrepreneurial type who has organised his fellow community members, to develop community based tourism. You can go on a village visit and have lunch with at Valentin’s or another community member’s house. There are also kayaks if you feel like spending a day kayaking to Taquile. (please contact us for more information). You can instead hike to a scenic spot will show you fabulous Lake views.

Access to Llachon is by boat or by land from Puno, taking about two hours to reach it.
