A stone's throw from YumaniKalaki is a village located north of Lake Titicaca, not far from the city of Copacabana. It's one of the departure points for the Cordillera Real trek.

My suggestion:
You can either do the full Cordillera Real trek or part of it; it's up to you as to whether you would want to do the whole trek, and I'd say it's very much dependant on your physical condition, your availability, budget and of course preference!
My review

Trekking in the Cordillera Real is every hiker's dream! Yet crossing this mountain range requires serious physical preparation. It's also unthinkable to make the journey without a guide or the proper equipment. Everything begins on the banks of Lake Titicaca. Let me tell you about it...

Having reached Copacabana from La Paz, it was then 2 days of walking in northern Isla Des Sol, for acclimatisation purposes. We explored the 3 small villages on the island: Yumani, Challa and Challapampa, as well as the ruins of Chincana. The following day, we headed to Isla de la Luna, where we discovered pre-Colombian remains. Then it was time to cross the lake towards Kalaki. From this village, we went to Sorata in an all-terrain vehicle; this was our departure point for the Cordillera Real trek. Let the adventure begin!
