The crystal clear night skies of Titilaka and the relatively thin atmosphere provide the perfect environment for stargazing, and learning about ancient civilization’s beliefs of the heavens up above. Bundle up and head out at night to Titilaka’s observation platform. Your guide will describe the Andean constellations and celestial movements, especially Wawawara Hawira, the Milky Way. He will explain, for example, that the Incas’ constellation was the Orion and that the Aymara people, native to the region, consider the Southern Cross as their stars. The oral traditions of Andean sky, passed on from father to son, explain the origin of the world and cosmic order. You will learn about the two skies, one for winter and one for summer, each with their own constellations, myths and ceremonies. You will also learn about the Inca calendar and the importance of the Chakana, the Andean Cross. The dry season of April to October is the best viewing time as the clouds and rain can make constellation-viewing impossible in other times.
