Here is the low value, 10 bolivianos stamp (Sc #C82) from Bolivia's August 21, 1941 set of four airmails. Stamp shows an airplane's shadow on Lake Titicaca. The lake straddles the Bolivia-Peru border in the Andes Mountains. Photo shows Lake Titicaca from the Bolivian side.

From wikipedia, "By volume and by surface area, it is the largest lake in South America. Lake Titicaca has a surface elevation of 3812 meters (12,507 ft). The 'highest navigable lake' claim is generally considered to refer to commercial craft."
