After breakfast, prepare for checkout and transfer to the airport. On your airport transfer enjoy a guided excursion to Sillustani, a spectacular peninsula facing the Umayo lagoon and home to the area’s best preserved remains. In addition to its unique geography, this site was a burial ground for the Pucara, Tiahuanaco and Ccolla pre-Inca cultures long before the Inca expansion. The tower-like structures known as Chullpas, which symbolised life and birth, are ancient and impressive tombs for chiefs and other dignitaries. Later the site was inhabited by the Incas, who made their own version of these towers. The difference in periods and cultures is seen in the two types of chullpas- the rough, smaller pre-Inca towers, and the smooth, larger ones made by the Incas. The biggest tower took about 50 years to construct and holds rocks weighing anywhere from 2 to 6 tons. This is an impressive site that combines archaeology, history and an amazing landscape.
Farewell takes place at the Juliaca airport or train Station where you will board your plane or train to your next destination. You may wish to travel across Lake Titicaca to Bolivia.
