Pukara

Ruins in Aucapata & Iskanwaya

A set of Mollo ruins so little explored that locals say you can still find ceramic pieces and other artifacts. It lies like a fortress on the peak above Aucapata and can be reached on a 1½-hour hike from Aucapata's plaza (look for the cross and you'll see the ruins just above). When clouds rise out of the valleys, this site offers a privileged view of the entire region.
