We had a wonderful guide with us who explained the amazing history of this pre-Incan site, which was an important site many years before the European migration to the Americas. Their civilization was not primitive.

The size of the stones and images of animals on the burial towers was worth seeing. A bit of a walk but worth it.

We stopped on our way to the airport and what an interesting place! Definitely take the time to walk through. Because of erosion, you will see lots of broken pottery and human bone fragments as you walk the path.

We took the Andean Explorer train from Puno to Cucso & travelled through Juliaca - not the most attractive town. However, it's still reasonably close to the Lake so you should see it from a window seat.
