Posted: Aug 19, 2013 11:44 pm EDT

Belgian adventurer Louis-Philippe Loncke and Peruvian Gadiel Sanchez Riviera (Cho) are taking off on August 16 on a two month kayaking expedition around the coast of Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America.

 

Cho was the guide walking the length of th Amazon River for 2 years with Ed Stafford.

 

Louis-Philippe and Cho will try to stay within 100 meter of the shore and complete, according to Louis-Philippe, a first close-to-shore circum-navigation of the lake. They will track GPS points along the shore and take photos of the shore line to create references for environmental research.

 

At an elevation of 12,500 feet (3,811 m), Titicaca is the highest navigable lake on Earth. The west shores are located in Peru and the east in Bolivia.
