I. Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is found altiplano high (South America) and it borders Peru and Bolivia. It has the depth of 280 metres. It is the largest fresh water supply in the South America. The lake is characterised by small artificial islands of which they are made of reeds. Rainfall and glaciers melting on the sierras fed the lake. The lake is remarkable for people who live on the Uros, which are the group of islands and they become a centre that attract tourist. [10]
