On a peninsula of the Umayo lagoon, is Sillustani, a cemetery where you can see a series of impressive tombs, belonging to the Kolla culture, which developed in the northern part of the lagoon, in the town known as Hatuncolla.
The extraordinary shape of the tombs, inverted cone-shaped trunks, called chulpas, are constructions that are found in smaller numbers, also in several other localities of Puno.
The archaeological site of Sillustani is located 34 km from the city of Puno (35 minutes by road) and at an altitude of 3,840 meters above sea level.
What predominates most are the natural landscapes with what time left us, around the Umayo lagoon is observed, but the highlight of this place is the cemetery that was built in the twelfth century by a civilization that occupied the area before the Inca domain.
