This island, with a surface area of slightly less than 10 square kilometres, rises more than 300 m above the lake. The roughly 4000 inhabitants grow various crops on ancient terraces. There are no cars or roads. Tourism on Amantaní is fully community-based: visitors are assigned to privately operated guest houses on a rotational basis, so that each family and each community only receives tourists from time to time.
