Llachón is at 75 km of the city of Puno, about 1:45 by land and 2:00 by sea. This natural landscape is rich with mountains view, pre Incas farm terraces and its small eucalyptus woods that surround the community. This is the daily surroundings where comuneros and comuneras cultivate, fish, weave and do their domestic tasks.
Guest houses are warm and simple, where the rustic furniture and tools are made with local material (wooden shelves, reed-made curtains and blankets weaved by comuneros).
Through the window of whatever room, it is possible to admire the spectacular landscape of the lake, and we advise you to take advantage of it in particular at dawn and sunset.
