On the shore of Lake Huyñaymarka, a southern extension of Lake Titicaca, the small town of Huatajata makes a pleasant base for exploration of the Lake Titicaca area. Since most of the attractions are waterbirds, an early start is not necessary.
Less than two hours from La Paz, the Huatajata lakeshore makes a good day trip. Although the area can be birded using public transportation or as part of Lake Titicaca package tour, the best strategy is to have your own vehicle.
This gives you the freedom to stop at various places that look interesting. Bird concentrations and best locations depend greatly on the water levels in the lake. The following plan of stops is usually good: Leave El Alto for the paved road to Lake Titicaca and Copacabana
