This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
From Cusco I caught the bus to Puno, a small town which sits at 3,800m at the edge of Lake Titicaca.
While I was there I visited the Sillustrani ruins, a set of Incan burial tombs. The tombs are up to 12m high and were built from large chunks of stone. The burial site also featured a shrine to the moon and sun gods, and each burial tomb featured a small opening to allow a shaft of light to reach the dead, which, it was believed would allow them to reincarnate.
The tombs are located on a hill with a beautiful view over a lake.
Definitely a tomb with a view! Excuse the pun :)
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
