The Floating Uros Islands of Peru

Floating on the waters of Lake Titicaca are a series of islands unlike any you’ve seen before—the Floating Uros Islands. They belong to the Urus people who sought refuge on these waters hundreds of years ago. The islands are man-made using 5 feet of stacked totora reeds to create a floating base. While they’ve survived on the lake, it hasn’t been easy. See how Operation Blessing helped provide safe drinking water to children at a Urus school.
