The Lago Titicaca is the highest lake where you can use boats. It lies at 3812m above sea level, its size is about 8300 km2, up to 280m deep, has 41 islands, about 25 rivers flow into it but only 1 leaves the lake. Only 5 percent of the water actually leaves the lake that way, the rest vaporises. Therefore the water is a bit salty and the farmers have problems with using the water for their fields.
