Good way to spend an afternoon. I was the only one in my group who wasn't from somewhere in South America and therefore the only english speaker so I walked off and did my own tour. Which I prefer anyway. The ruins are cool and worth the visit

This is ancient burial site (pre-Inca times) is a half day excursion from Puno. We used the excellent services of PeruVivo/Lutgardes Huamán Masías to arrange this trip. The Chullpas de Sillustani (burial towers) are some 30 km outside of Puno. After you arrive at the Sillustani site's parking lot you explore the remnants of this burial ground for kings and... More

We visited at the end of our trip, after seeing many, many Inca and pre-Inca sites. While is was nice, and peaceful, I would have been okay skipping this stop on our journey.

Amazing ruins of funerary towers built by the Incas. The view of the surrounding area and the lake from the top of the park is worth the walk. A whole different perspective on the Puno/Lake Titikaka area and worth the short side trip.

We stopped here on return to the airport. There is a limited amount to see but still worth taking the time out

This was the last visit to an archaeological find on our trip . The area was beautiful. The ruins of funerary sites are amazing . The lakes and wildlife , people are a must see. It was a great way to end our trip and much needed calmer environment . Spending several days at high altitude was definitely a challenge... More

I was surprised by how well the local government has spent money on a superb well designed entrance to Sullustani. **** (4 stars). The ruins and the tour guide was terrific. I will recommend to everyone to visit..

I'm told that the burial towers of Sillustani, built long before the Incas, are perhaps the finest and the most perfect cylindrical constructions of ancient Peru. This is a bit out of the way, but I found it very interesting and, clearly, historically significant. There is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the towers. There is... More

Very beautiful and magical to visit the enormous burial tombs, near a beautiful and tranquil lagoon, all very well organized by the agency, very accurate information and very easy to pay.

We booked this tour out of Puno to see the funeral towers and was quite impressed. The hiking was very short and the history of the tours is very interesting. Lots of good views with the lake behind the towers and the surrounding rolling lands.
