Time for sightseeing: approximately 3 hours
At approximately 2:45 p.m., after a 45-minute bus ride, we’ll arrive at the necropolis of Sillustani, located in the district of Atuncolla, some 33 km. from the city of Puno and at a height of 3,928 meters above sea level. Sillustani was the one of the most important burial grounds for the Kolla and Inca cultures. Along the way, we’ll have the chance to observe many small villages, such as Paucarcolla and Atuncolla, before experiencing the impressive views from Sillustani itself. On the return trip, we’ll visit the house of a peasant family from the Altiplano and hear them talk about their style of life.
