Amazing! Hopefully the Peruvian government does something to preserve this place! The magic, the landscape, the history and the knowledge acquired in these place were one of the highlights of our trip!

We booked an afternoon tour from Puno with Titicaca World Travel. The price (approx £9 each) included hotel pick-up & drop-off, bus, admission & English speaking tour guide. Great value & great trip. From the Sillustani car park it's about half a mile walk up to the ruins (during which the guide points out interesting features and legends). At the... More

This place was Our favorite after Machupiccu in Peri. We were lucky to have a personal tour guide or would not have known what the structures were or what everything meant on this Pre-Incan cemetery site. Climb was fine since we had acclimated for 7 days but could be difficult for some. It took us about 30 min with a... More

The visit to Sillustani was part of the itinerary of the Globus Tour. About 35 mins from Puno, the route passes through the Atuncolla village, where a stop was made to visit a typical Peruvian farmhouse of that area.The opportunity offered was to come up close and personal with the farmer's herd of Guanaco and Alpacas. Besides an understanding of... More

We were hit by quite a storm that made walking somewhat unpleasant given the exposed location. Our guide came to our rescue with Poncho's. It was a good walk and climb at altitude which stressed some of our group. The experience was just magnificent and well worth the effort. Rarely have we seen such attention to detail in building funerary.

Sillustani was about a 45 minute trip from Puno on a bus. The ruins were very interesting and our guide did a great job of explaining the history of the site. Most of the photos that I saw of the chullpas were taken on bright sunny days. The day we went was quite cloudy with an approaching storm, so it... More

We were due to catch the (10hr) train ride from Puno to Cuzco, but farmers were on strike and had blockaded the tracks. Our travel agents did a great job of re-booking us onto flights, but it meant we had time to kill in the morning. So they went the extra mile (several actually) and took us for an unscheduled...

maybe, after reading my lonely planet, i expected something more... there is an entry fee of 10 NS, then you have to walk a bit to get to the top of the hill where you have a beautiful view over the bay. as for the tumbs, well, you have to have a very good guide that explain you everything otherwise...
