The Island Amantani

Our Meditation Retreat Center  is located on the mystical island Amantani in the middle of Lake Titicaca.

There are 2 mountains on the island, which each has an ancient 5000 year old temple on top. The temples are dedicated to Pachamama and Pachatata, the feminine and masculine principle of the universe.
There is no traffic or even roads on the island which makes it a very quiet and peaceful place.

“The island amantani offered the perfect setting for reflection and meditation. It was serenely quiet, with amazing views and a feeling of spaciousness.”
John Nelson

Accommodation

We run our retreat center in cooperation with a local family who is also providing you with delicious food.

We are in a very remote place, in the middle of lake Titicaca, at an altitude of 4000m.

However,you will find yourself in a beautiful, clean environment with comfortable beds and (shared) hot showers.

I was impressed by our host family who gave us such a loving welcome and took care of everything we needed. Their pure attitude has touched my heart.

How to get there

The island Amantani is located in the middle of lake Titicaca.

If you are coming to our monthly silent meditation retreat, we are organizing free group transportation from Cusco and Juliaca.

If you want to travel to the retreat center yourself, here is how you get there:

From Cusco: Take a morning bus from Cusco to Juliaca. We recommend to travel with the company “Transzela” as it is by far the most comfortable. The bus leaves at 8.30 and arrives in Juliaca around 2pm.

From Juliaca: Take a mototaxi and ask the driver to bring you to “el terminal por capachica”. He will drop you at another terminal from where the minivans leave. Take a minivan to “Capachica” and continue by taxi to the port “Chiffron” which is only 5 minutes from the town of Capachica. From here take the boat to the island Amantani.

IMPORTANT:
You need to prearrange a boat to bring you to the island Amantani.
Please send us a message when you plan to come and we will arrange the boat for you.
