Day 175 – Pre Inca burial, Sillustani

Returned to Puno after a fabulous stay on the Uros islands. The afternoon was spent visiting Sillustani a pre inca burial ground. The stone cylinder towers called chullpas were built for the elite community members and usually held extended families. The highest tower here stands 12m.
