SILLUSTANI AND UROS ISLAND TOUR ITINERARY

The Sillustani and Uros island tour begin at 8:00 am with a transfer from your Puno hotel to the port. Then, we will take a boat excursion to the famous floating island of Uros. Once there, we will walk on the reed islands, visiting the homes of native Uros inhabitants. The Uros tribes are direct descendants of one of the oldest South American Civilizations. Our expert local guide will give us an explanation about how the Uros people make their home islands from one of the lake reeds, and how they forge a subsistent lifestyle floating in the middle of Lake Titicaca. After that, we will return back to Puno and have lunch before we continue on to Sillustani. In the afternoon, we will take our private van to visit the oldest funerary towers of Sillustani. These huge tombs are set on a hill above Lake Umayo and were used as the cemetery for Colla nobility. The towers of Sillustani are the most impressive of the burial towers constructed by the Colla people. This ethnic group was later incorporated into the Inca Empire and constructed the towers to bury their ancestors.The carefully carved stones are adorned with complicated carvings, some of which project out from the surface of the piece. At the end of the guided tour, we will use our private transport to get back to Puno and drop off at your hotel.
