This is an important archeological sight-lots to see, learn and marvel at ingenuity of architects, engineers and builders of the past. But it is also a very spiritual place. It is incredibly peaceful and tranquil but at the same time vibrates with a very powerful...More

Offers great view and interesting history. You can explore the place on your own (no need for guide). The access is very good (paved road all the way) with an ample parking space.

Sillustani is sort of like a pre-Incan version of Arlington Cemetery. It is about 40 minutes from Puno (on the way to Juliaca). The site is on top of a mesa overlooking the surrounding lowlands and Lake Umayo. It is a breathtaking sight from on...More

This is a very interesting place both culturally and historically and the views from the top of the lakes and scenery are beautiful. Allow a couple of hours to take it all in.

This pre-Incan burial site is perched in a beautiful location above a large lake. Experiencing the site gave me a broader appreciation of the diversity of cultures in the region and was simply visually striking as well. Getting to the site includes a moderate uphill...More

I did the afternoon tour of about 3 hours. The guide was well informed and took us through the history of the tombs and the area. I had been, by myself, to the museum of Carlos Dreyer in the morning and thought the pair complimented...More

A lovely clean and quiet place for a visit. Some members were a little apprehensive about more walking in the heat but there were many opportunities to turn back towards the coffee shop if required. An educational visit learning about the funeral pyres and a...More

We took the Andean Explorer train from Puno to Cucso & travelled through Juliaca - not the most attractive town. However, it's still reasonably close to the Lake so you should see it from a window seat.
