TITICACA LAKE

Titicaca Lake

Mythology

 

Lake Titicaca is an important lake in Andean mythology, from which, according to legend, Manco Cápac and Mama Ocllo, children of the Sun god and founders of the Inca Empire, emerged. 

Geography

 

Peru and Bolivia share sovereignty over this navigable lake, which is the highest in the world at 12,500 ft (3,810 m) above sea level. It has an area of 3,304 square miles (8559 sq. km) and has a maximum depth of 928 ft (283 m). The annual average temperature of its waters varies, from between 9°C and 15°C from October to May, and from -14°C to -2°C, June to September. The lake works as a temperature regulator for the area regulator for the area; if it did not exist, the chance of any type of life would be nil.

Biodiversity

 

On the lake shore, totora reeds grow, which harbor a variety of birds and fish, such as Carachis, Mauris, and Suche lake catfish (in danger of extinction). All of these species are native and prized for their nutritional value. Trout and silverside, which are non-native species, can also be found.
