City: Puno, Mountains // Activities: City tour //

During this half day tour you will get to know Sullustanti, a pre-Incan cemetery that is located 33 km away from Puno's city center. It lies on the shore of Lake Umayo and consists of various "chullpas", which are the tombs where the people collected the remains of entire families, such as gold, silver and even food, in order to immortalise the dead. These chullpas can be up to 12m high and are certainly a very unique tomb. Get to know more about the interesting history that Puno has to offer!
