Puno to Isla del Sol Schedules of Departures and Arrivals Times

Puno to Kasani borderline

After the requested pick-up time from your hotel in Puno city our driver will take you to Kasani border in about 2hr 25 min.

On the way three photo and sightseeing stops are offered to fresh and make the car ride more enjoyable.

Chucuito Temple of Fertility

Your driver will take you to Chucuito in about 20 minutes, along the western bank of Lake Titicaca. Upon arrival, just pay your entry ticket (PEN 8 per person) and take a look inside the Inca Temple of Fertility ever built before.

Aramu Muru Doorway

It’s located 1 hr drive away from Chucuito. You’ll see and marvel the low relieve stone carving and strange huge portal facing to east. Entrance fee should be paid in person at the site (PEN 5 per person)

Aramu Muru Portal is a rock that had been smoothed to a flat surface and adorned with a small alcove.

The flat stone is roughly 23-feet square, with a T-shaped alcove some 6 feet, 6 inches tall carved into it. The most likely explanation is that it was an abandoned Incan construction project.

Locals are said to call the doorway the “Puerta de Hayu Marca,” or “Gate of the Gods,” and local legends apparently speak of people disappearing through the doorway as well as of strange sights, such as “tall men accompanied by glowing balls of lights walking through the doorway.”

Pomata Lookout

The third stop is at Pomata lookout. This is the high pass between Puno and Kasani ideal to admire how huge is the Lake and the magnificent views to the Island of the Sun and snow peaks.
