In the heart of South American and amidst Andes, there is the Lake Titicaca at the height of 3812 metres above sea level. While on one side of the Lake Titicaca is Peru, the other side is Bolivia and in the midst of them this huge blue mass of water seems like a floating gem. Such is the volume of the lake that it supports the navigation of large boats amongst which the recent one has been the Manco Capac which is operated by the PeruRail.
