You will need to sweat a lot in order to reach the Condor, is excellent if you visit them in the morning. I suggest you to leave from your hotel at 5am in order to avoid the sun.

The mirador is signposted from Plaza de Armas, but then becomes a bit harder to find (I just asked people where it was and they told me). It involves quite a bit of uphill walking, culminating in 559 steps (yes, I counted them). Don't attempt this until you have acclimatised to the altitude! I had read that some tourists had... More

I had a day off and went up to see the condor at the top of the hill. Because it is at altitude I huffed and puffed a bit going up the stairs but I liked the view (and the exercise) so I visited the condor again the next morning. At the top you get an awesome view of that... More

We had read to beware of locals robbing groups of tourists, but we went five times and never perceived a problem or threat. A total of just about 620 steps from bottom to top, it is quite a trek and will definitely help get you in shape and acclimatized (we used this as preparation for the Inka trail and it... More

We walked from our hotel and up all the steps. Amazing view of the city and lake Titicaca. Totally safe to be there during the day.

Lots of stairs to go up but pretty complete view of the city. We were the only ones there which was pretty cool.

Our hotel manager suggested we head up to "The Condor" to have a look over the ciy of Puno. As there were "150" steps to ascend to the top , we took a taxi (around 20 Bob) which was quite an interesting journey on some unsealed, potholed roads past some interesting neighbor hoods ! Once there we had a commanding... More

Unless you go there with a group don't go there. Our hotel staff recommended absolutely not to go there unless you want to get robbed. A lot of people got robbed lately.

From Condor hill, one will have a priceless view of Puno and Lake Titicaca below. This visit entails strenuous walking up stairs.

When I was here last time, my goal was to climb the hill (or mountain) that had the Puma statue at the top. So I asked the tourist office how to get there. They said it is very far but there is something near, the Al Condor. I can take the shared bus to the last point of where the... More
