Sheep grazing near Lake Titicaca
  Sheep grazing near Lake Titicaca, 1995
Once the crop has been harvested, sheep are allowed into the field to eat the discarded stems and plants. Today, sheep are considered a source of protein, but primarily provide a significant income for peasant farmers, who sell the meat in urban markets for a profit. Beyond the lake rise the majestic peaks of the Cordillera Real, visible from all regions of the northern Altiplano, extending towards the city of La Paz.
