We landed on one side of the island on the "fast" tour boat and walked across the island slowly on mostly paved walkways. Needed to stop and enjoy the view--high altitude was slowing everybody except the guide. He kept saying this walk was easier than climbing steps the other way. The views were great. The locals put on an informative... More

The walk up to the restaurant was neat and food was good, views were amazing. We purchased some items from the locals and it seemed to be good quality. Worth the visit!

This island is awesome. The village is really cute and the view of the lake is amazing. The trail upstairs is not too hard, but takes solid 40minutes. They have a nice clothes shop in the main square. A big one. Enjoy the lunch with the great view.

What a surprise to find a sandy beach here. There are toilets and the village gave us a very tasty lunch of high restaurant quality.

This is a beautiful island and well worth making the effort to visit. We were part of a group and had lunch arranged for us, delicious Trout with an amazing view. Allow time to walk up as it's steep and the altitude makes it difficult.

Nice little island, which is still farmed by traditional methods. Otherwise totally tourist driven and the locals all have their hands out. Went to a decent hillside restaurant as part of the tour. Most enjoyable part was meeting the other people on our cruise whilst we walked the island.
