The Sillustani burial towers are certainly worth visiting. There is a long pedestrian walk way to the site lined with market stalls and vendors selling their wares at extremely reasonable prices ie Alpaca scarves 10NS. You will find several children with animals ie Alpaca etc wanting you to take their photo for a Soles. Toilet facilities are available on the... More

Nice for people who love to take pictures in the sunset and who like (Pre-) Inka history. Else nice to do in an afternoon. A bit touristy crowded.

We got a taxi from central Puno for Soles 90, leaving at 09:15. We then paid Soles 26 to get the 4 of us in (2 adults, 1 student and 1 child) in to the site. This allowed us to stop to take photos on the way there, and on the way back. It also meant that there were only... More

Very interesting tombs and history. There is a lot of uphill walking, but not a lot of steps, just uphill. It can be difficult with th altitude. Booths to buy handicrafts.

First glimpse of Inca ruins,quiet area,short drive between airport Juliaca and city Puno, passed villages and saw natives ,llamas, walk up to the ruins requires some cardiac fitness and acclimitization prior to trek. Not good idea to do first day after reaching peru,great view of lake from the top,nice for photography,cheaper to buy souvenirs than in city

I enjoyed the visit very much. It was exciting because I had a very good guide (without guide the visit is not that interesting). The place is quite magic and a very good alternative if you don't want to visit the overcrowded Island of Taquile. I combined it with a visit of the Uros Islands and had a very nice... More

I am delighted to have returned to Punocar is cool place to stay. Within this place there are all the recommended cleanliness. I suggest you spend a few nights and enjoy the magical places that are in the city of Puno and the islands of Amantini and Taquile have to see .

It is a fairly developed site. Great vistas. Tombs over the ages. However I believe Cutimbo is a better site, it has tombs and cave paintings so if you only have a limited time, go there.

I visited Sillustani in May of 2015. The funerary towers are on the top of a hill overlooking a lake. The small village below was quiet, but had a few vendors selling souvenirs. The little bulls on top of the roofs, called "torritos", caught my eye on each house we saw. The stonework in the homes leading up to the... More
