Owner description: These fascinating ruins consist of huge, cylinder-shaped towers in which pre-Inca tribes buried the elite members of their community.

Had a driver drop my off at around 11:45am and spent 1.5hrs exploring the funerary homes by myself. There are several posts with explanations and I really enjoyed the tranquility of the place before all the bus tours arrived in the afternoon. There are several small restaurants on the Main Street up which offer great lunches for less than 20 soles. Entrance if going on your own is 15 soles these days. You also have the chance to buy souvenirs on the street up from the car park. It’s an easy walk, I imagine if you have altitude problems you just take more breaks (max 15 steps in one go).

We did our tour in the morning. This is an archeological and historial site. You need to be in good shape in order to walk and clim the site, remember you are in a very high place and need to acclimateto the altitud. When you get to the top you are able to see the burials, a beautiful lake and the views are breathtaking.

This is a very interesting place both culturally and historically and the views from the top of the lakes and scenery are beautiful. Allow a couple of hours to take it all in.

This pre-Incan burial site is perched in a beautiful location above a large lake. Experiencing the site gave me a broader appreciation of the diversity of cultures in the region and was simply visually striking as well. Getting to the site includes a moderate uphill walk at 13,000', which most people had no issues with. The town at the base sells trinkets and is toursity but you can just continue to the site if you like.

I did the afternoon tour of about 3 hours. The guide was well informed and took us through the history of the tombs and the area. I had been, by myself, to the museum of Carlos Dreyer in the morning and thought the pair complimented each other beautifully, a wonderful coincidence!
