This funerary site is really interesting to visit. I went with a small tour and all the way up, the guide take the time to give lots of details about the ''spirituality'' of this place. There's even a place where there was sacrifices. When you...More

This site is about 30-40 minutes by taxi from Puno and we stopped here on our way to Juliaca airport. The drive through Sillustani township is interesting as well because of the style of housing - 4-6 small buildings within walled grounds. When you arrive...More

We called in here on our way from Puno to Juliaca airport, as it's only a short detour (though apparently sometimes the road is closed due to the flooding of the lake). At the car park area, there are shops and stalls, as well as...More

We went with a guide who explained the history of these burial tombs and the circle which was very spiritual.. you could feel the energy. It’s about 1.5-2hrs in total. Gorgeous vistas. We even came across a baby tarantula! Stopped to pet some alpacas on...More

The cylindrical tombs are the draw here, but we enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery as much as the tombs.

Thanks, Alexander, for climbing up there with me. It was not to be missed. And your knowledge of the site that you shared with me was invaluable. Not an entirely easy trek, but not to be missed.

Our trip here came after visiting the Galapagos, Machu Picchu, Nazca and Puno's floating islands, so we were suffering from a little burnout not to say oxygen deprivation (14,000 feet). That is not to say that Sillustani wasn't interesting. If you are in Puno, this...More

These require about a 40 minute walk up, but don't let that deter you! They are fascinating and really, its your guide that makes the trip. These are group tours, although I suppose you could go alone, but then you would miss the history provided...More

We had a Driver to take us to the airport, so we arranged to go a bit earlier to visit Sillustani. There are no gates so there is no opening or closing time....

Hi, I think an hour there is enough to have a walk around and take in the energy and views.

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.
