Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour 1 Day, the great alternative trek to the hard trek of Vinicunca, this hike is very easy because the hike to the summit is mostly flat, or as we call “Inca Flat” a gradual incline to the summit. It takes only 30 min to reach the summit. Once you’re there, you will have the view of the three fantastic Rainbow Mountains and the tallest mountain of Cusco “Ausangate”.
The Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain is located in the south of Cusco, province of Canchis, at over 4.990 m.a.s.l. It has three natural Rainbow Mountains with beautiful scenery, it also has a rock forest “Fascinating group of volcanic rock formations”, we recommend going early in the morning to this place since in the afternoon this place is windy and you could be stricken by lightning due to the high concentration of minerals at this place.
If you are in search of a natural attraction that leaves you speechless and that is not full of tourists who stand in your photographs, you have to know the Palccoyo Mountain in Cusco.
