It is the best site EVER! This was my #1 bucket list item and it did not disappoint. It's sad that 90% of the people who go to Tiawancu drive right by and don't go here. DON'T miss it.

On our recently concluded trip to South America including Peru, Bolivia and Chile, Pumapunku would go down as the most frustrating yet intriguing. Frustrating because no one knows why this place was even built and the ruins and artefacts excavated are all over the shop....More

This place is mind boggling! The perfectly cut stones really make you wonder who, what, when, why and HOW!? You dont need an imagination to enjoy this place. Just eyes. Happy adventuring!

Puma punku is incredible. All the stone work and the uncertainty surrounding this place make it really magical. It make us really question, who did the stone work and how!
