Condor Hill (Mirador de Kuntur Wasi), Puno

(3.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Puno trip itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Condor Hill (Mirador de Kuntur Wasi) and other attractions in Puno.

  • You should concern more for tourism in Puno that its attractions are an asset for the city, which not is vee in this viewpoint, there is no security, there are no restaurants nearby, there is much less someone who help you, lousy cleaning.

  • The view of the place is awesome, concept, aesthetics, and the elements that could be better.

  • You can walk to the bottom of the steps from Plaza Del Armes in 10 mins or so then taking the 620 steps, 50 at a time for a rest, you can see a magnificent view of Puno and the lake . It is safe, best...  more »

  • 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.
  • ok
  • 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.
