Condor Hill (Mirador de Kuntur Wasi), Puno

(3.7/5 based on 140+ 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.
