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.

  • There is very nice view of Titicaca Lake. You can climb the stairs in 30 minutes from the center or take a taxi .
  • Buena vista de la Ciudad, pero hay que tener cuidado porque es un lugar muy desolado y sin mantenimiento. La calle es de tierra o está la opción de las escalinatas. Nosotras subimos y bajamos en taxi y William, su conductor, fue un guía muy atento.
  • Great view of Puno and Lake Titicaca. This was actually my favorite experience in Puno, and an easy walk from the main square (but then you have to climb a LOT of stairs, so take it easy). I asked multiple locals, even a police officer, and I was told it's safe during the day. I went midday and indeed it was; there was a bunch of school kids all around the bottom. I was told by a local not to go after 4pm.
  • Good place to appreciate the city and the lake 😉
  • nice view on the city, possible to climb the condor for free
