#13 of 38 in Things to do in Puno
A long metal wingspan of a condor stretches out against the sky at Condor Hill (Mirador de Kuntur Wasi), 3,990 m (13,087 ft) above sea level. The bird serves both as an important reminder of the community's Andean heritage and, more importantly, as one of the most extraordinary vantage points from which to view the city and the lake. The monument stands at the end of a 620-step staircase--wear proper walking shoes and bring your camera.

  • Climbing all the stairs towards viewpoint it is an incredible experience that will test your strength, but when you reach the top you have a beautiful view of the city and the Lake.

  • We must climb in markets and earn it but worth the peek! Is best to do to feet: not to observe the change of perspective at every little stop... is top! (and your legs will thank you). The view is splendid: on Lake Titicaca and the entire city. Tip: don't go with apparent precious objects. The place is known to be a little dangerous. We went to 2 girls and no worries! ;) FYI: Kuntur Wasi means home of the Condor in quechua. Where the animal which overlooks this mirador. Go on, really. Don't miss it!

  • Needs a bit of physical fitness to climb the steep steps and slopes, infinite if there is an interesting ride, the path seems a little strange and dangerous, but I haven't noticed anything wrong in no time.

  • nice view on the city, possible to climb the condor for free
  • if you're in Puno you should visit el mirador
  • Nice panorama of Puno. But not easy to reach an not really safe place.
  • Very nice view of Puno, the surrounding mountains and the Titicaca lake.
  • The condor viewpoint is located south west of the central plaza. Walking up would be tough as there are many stairs up the steep slope but a taxi from the main square costs between 10-20soles. The view gives you a good sense for the scale of (not particularly picturesque) Puno city and an excellent view out to the lake. the walk back down to the main square only takes 10-15 minutes.
