Itinerary

  • Your tour will begin with a private pickup from your hotel at 08:00. The hour-long ride to Tiwanaku will take you on a scenic journey through the High Plateau. Along the way we will pass by the imposing Andes Mountain Range as well as get the opportunity to observe the more traditional, countryside way of life.
  • On Wednesdays it is also possible to make a brief stop at Quellani and witness the weekly cattle market, a dying tradition in this part of the world. Upon arrival at the UNESCO designated ruins of Tiwanaku we will first visit the Lithic and Ceramic Museums, designed to communicate to visitors the impressive history of the pre-Incan Tiwanaku civilization.
  • Following our quick museum tour, we will head to the main attraction: the Tiwanaku ruins. At the archeological site we will explore the cultures main temples including the Pyramid of Akapana and Kalasasya as well as the inspiring Gateways to the Sun and Moon. In addition to the traditional examples of Tiwanaku architecture, giant monoliths and figurative representations are scattered throughout the archeological complex.
  • What is perhaps most impressive about Tiwanaku is the incredible skill and craftsmanship needed to create such architecture. Huge stone blocks weighing as much as 45 tons each are placed with such precision that not a single gap between one to the next exists. The sculptures too are worthy of modern-day appreciation- intricate details of both the people and the gods can be seen on the spiritual figures the Tiwanaku revered.
  • A trip to Tiwanaku is more than just a walk-through history; it is a breathtaking testament to an ancient civilization that was far advanced beyond their years. After your tour through the ruins, we will have a buffet lunch served in Tiwanaku. Then we will continue to La Paz.
