Description

Explore the ancient tombs of Sillustani, a pre-Incan necropolis that dates to the indigenous Colla people. The burial ground, which covers a massive stretch of land and features more than 90 stone chullpas (mausoleums), is a surprising reminder of the age and cultural richness of Peru.

Get picked up from your hotel in downtown Puno and travel to the chullpas at Sillustani. This jutting peninsula surrounded by Lake Umayo hosts one of the largest necropolises in the world, with more than 90 stone chullpas, each housing the remains of an ancient noble family.

The structures are huge, more than 40 feet (12 m) tall, and wider at the top than the base. Spend some time exploring the area and enjoying the views of the lake, admiring the pre-Incan construction and design before returning to your hotel.

I expected this tour to be in english but most everyone else on this approximatilly 20 passenger van spoke spanish. So we had to listen to long explanations in spanish and shorter versions in sometimes hard to understand english. However this tour was a great value compared to the tour company price we could have booked with as an optional excursion.

The guide knew a lot about the topic and both his English and Spanish were alright. Nice touch of inviting us at some local's place to eat potatoes with (medicinal) clay on the way back to Puno.

Our tour guide was amazing. He did English and Spanish and would do a little of each so everyone stayed engaged and the English speakers didn’t feel like we were missing out on the stories. He had tones of jokes and stories and history to tell us. Really amazing experience.
