Mirador de Kuntur Wasi - City Walk Puno - Peru

Kuntur Wasi—which means House of the Condor—is an apropos place for this monument. With its metal wingspan 11 meters (36 ft) long, and perched on a hill 3,990 meters (13,087 ft) high overlooking Puno, the Kuntur Wasi condor is the most dramatic expression of this community’s pride in its Andean heritage. The lookout provides a breathtaking view of the city and Lago Titicaca. In the distance, Península de Chucuito and the offshore islands may be seen. From the base of the monument, 620 steps go up to the condor’s talons.

Two kilometers (1.2 mi) southwest of downtown
