Itinerary Details

Located near the southern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, the city of Tiwanaku (also spelled Tiahuanaco) was the capital of a powerful pre-Inca civilization that dominated the Andean region between 500 AD and 900 AD. The monumental remains of this great culture include several temples, a pyramid, symbolic gates, monoliths, and mysterious carvings of alien-like faces.
