Description

Your half day tour starts with a pick-up from your hotel in Puno around 2:00 PM, to start your visit to the ceremonial center of Sillustani, located 34 km from the city of Puno. This tour visit will allow you to appreciate the magnificent architecture and engineering. The chullpas are circular stone towers erected to house the funerary remains of the principal authorities of the ancient settlers of Collao (Altiplano). Some reach up to 12 meters high and are characterized by their base being smaller in diameter than the upper part. A short distance from the archaeological complex is the site museum, where various pieces of the Kolla, Tiahuanaco and Inca cultures are preserved. One of the most famous attractions of the Sillustani complex is the 'Chullpa del Lagarto', a funerary tower that represents the highest chullpa of the complex. This was built in the Inca era and raised with square stones that fit perfectly. It was destroyed at the beginning of the 19th century by huaqueros who sought the treasures of the place. Another beautiful place in Sillustani is the Umayo lagoon, an incredible mirror of water that reflects the blue sky and the white clouds of Puno. This lagoon houses an island that is a reserve for the protection of local vicuñas. This tour of Sillustani takes approximately 1 hour and you will be going back to Puno, where you will arrive around 5:00 PM.
