Half-Day Trip to Sillustani from Puno

Leave Puno behind and travel to Sillustani, a famous burial ground just off the road that leads to Juliaca. Located approximately 18 miles (30 km) from Puno on the shores of Lake Umayo, Sillustani is a delight for any history enthusiast! Follow in the steps of the ancient Colla people who roamed Lake Titicaca for centuries before the arrival of the Inca Empire. Although Sillustani’s history and culture are impressive, it is what the indigenous people left behind that stands out the most. Roam the ancient burial ground and marvel at the remaining chullpas, complex funerary towers built to honor a noble person in the Aymara culture. The high towers surrounding Lake Umayo boast impressive architecture, believed to be even more complex than that of the Incas. Despite their differences, the similarities between these two cultures are noticeable, as the ancient Aymara served as an essential building block for today’s Inca culture. After exploring these impressive burial grounds, enjoy a scenic drive back to your Puno hotel.
