Half day tour to the Sillustani Burial Towers (Chullpas), near Puno, Peru. This half day afternoon tour is a great option to pair with a morning Uros Islands tour and an interesting site to visit. This half day tour is available only in the afternoons (leaving approximately 14.00).
You will be picked up at your accommodation in Puno around 14.00 and we will head to the site of Sillustani located on hill over looking Lake Umayo. Here we will find tower like burial chambers that are called "Chullpas" that were built by the pre-incan Colla peoples that lived in the area. Your guide will tell you about the history of this place and give you a tour of the site. You will see how some of the tombs were dynamited by grave robbers looking for tresure and have chances to take photos of the towers and the view of the lake beyond. After the site visit we head back to Puno arriving approximately 17.45.
