Although Sillustani’s history and culture are impressive, it is what the indigenous people left behind that stand out the most. Roam the ancient burial ground and marvel at the remaining chullpas, complex funerary towers built to honor a noble person in the Aymara culture. The high towers surrounding Lake Umayo boasts impressive architecture believed to be even more complex than that of the Incas. Despite their differences, the similarities between these two cultures are noticeable, as the ancient Aymara served as an essential building block for today’s Inca culture. After exploring these impressive burial grounds, enjoy a scenic drive back to your Puno hotel.
