About
Sillustani is one of the largest necropolises in the world. Surrounded by a landscape of striking beauty, it stands out for its gigantic "chullpas" (stone towers), built by Collas and Incas in order to bury noble people. It is located 34 km away of the city of Puno and at an altitude of 3,840 meters above sea level. The archaeological site of Sillustani is a cemetery that was built in the 12th century by the Qolla civilization that occupied the area before the Inca civilization begun. The most imposing towers were built for important nobles and priests. These ancient civilizations considered the cemeteries places of rest and rebirth, that is why they chose beautiful places to build their cemeteries and which is considered as sacred places. It is a magical place that surrounds us with its charm and energy that fills us with peace and harmony due to the unique landscape surrounded by mountains that are reflected in the Umayo lagoon.

    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    From your hotel in Puno your driver and tour guide will pick you up and depart to Sillustani. As we arrive to the archaeological complex we will take a short hike for around 30 minutes to see the different funeral towers that rise up to 12 meters and belongs to the Pre-Inca and Inca cultures. These towers are located on a small peninsula surrounded by the Umayo Lagoon where we can appreciate the amazing views of the landscape. At Sillustani we will visit the interesting archeological site. This site is a sacred pre-Incan burial ground that holds above-ground tombs constructed in the shape of tall towers made from giant stones. You will also have the opportunity to visit some local houses where you will learn about daily life in this part of the Andes. After the tour we will take you back to Puno.
