The community of Llachon is located in a very scenic part of the Lake, in the peninsula of Capachica, which separates the Bay of Puno (or shallow section of the Lake) from the main Lake, or Lago Mayor; its scenery, beaches, typical accommodation and kindness of its families, allow for a comfortable stay. From the peak of the Inka Carus ceremonial grounds, one can admire the small archipelago where is located the Ticonata island with its rustic houses and its friendly people.
Llachón is a community of skillful and fine weavers and artisans, at the border of the lake, which offers the possibility of sharing the day to day work with visitors.
