"Huajsapata Park in Puno" Peru Off The Beaten Path Tip by Paul2001
Peru Off The Beaten Path: 145 reviews and 156 photos
Huajsapata Park is a park that overlooks Puno. It sits on a hill high over the city. The site is marked by a statue of what appears to be a condor. It is in fact Manco Capac. From this point there are outstanding views of Puno and Lake Titicaca. You can climb up to this point by way of the Pasaje Contique steps, however if you have yet to adjust to the Puno altitude (3870m), then take a taxi like me. Another reason for taking a taxi is that this spot is notorious for robberies. I did not have a problem and I did walk down the steps trouble free.
