Full description
Discover the wonder of pre-Incan culture with a trip a archeological tomb site of the Aymara people at Sillustani.

After your hotel pickup in Puno, head to Sillustani on a short 50-minute drive. Pull up to an unforgettable ruin site on the shore of Lake Umayo, a beautiful photo opportunity. 

Learn all about pre-Inca life from your guide at the Sillustani Archeological Site, where the ruins of the Aymara burial site give clues about its culture. Discover how they were pulled into the Inca Empire in the 15th century, and how architecturally the tombstones differ from their Inca counterparts.
