Museo de Kusijata

Museum in Copacabana to Yampupata

A 3km walk northeast along the shoreline from the end of Calles Junín or Ballivián leads to the community of Kusijata, where there’s a former colonial hacienda housing a small, dusty archaeological display. Seek out the long-deceased mummified corpse (chullpa) sitting in an upright fetal position, as it was buried. If no one is at the entrance, simply ask around or call.
