Detailed Itinerary:

Day 01: On the way to the Altiplano!

We will pick you up from your selected hotel at 6:20am and drop off you to the Bus station. This is a great bus trip, more like a tour – it stops at four interesting sites along the way where you have guided tour on board. Andahuaylillas: Sistine chapel of South America: this church is one of the most beautiful examples of Andean popular religious art. Raqchi (Wiracocha God Temple): This was an Inca church of monumental dimensions; 100 meters long, 26 meters wide and 14 meters high. The temple is divided in two naves and each nave has 11 giant columns – huge! La Raya: This is the half-way point between Cusco and Puno and also the highest point (4335 meters above sea level). The landscapes here are stunning and typical Andean animals like the llama, alpaca and vicuña are common sights. It is also the geographic border between the two cultures – Quechua and Aymara. Pukara: This is the most important and oldest ceremonial center of the altiplano. There are interesting lite-sculptures and tombs.
