Palccoyo Mountain Tour 1 Day - Alternative Rainbow Mountain

Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour 1 Day, the great alternative trek to the challenging 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 a view of the three fantastic Rainbow Mountains and the tallest mountain of Cusco, “Ausangate”.

The Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain is located 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 this place is windy in the afternoon. You could be stricken by lightning due to the high concentration of minerals at this place.
If you search for 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.

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

Pick up from your hotel (4:00am – 4:30am).

Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour 1 Day highlights:

  • Palccoyo is still not so crowded by travelers like Vinicunca Mountain.
  • The walk is simple and will not take you more than an hour.
  • An impressive stone forest will attract your attention.
  • The Palccoyo mountain range aims to become the new fashion destination.

  • The mountains’ reddish, green, and yellow tones will leave you speechless throughout the journey.
  • Recommended for tourists who do not have extensive trekking experience or much resistance to altitude.
  • Forget about the big spots of tourists going up, down and taking photos in the Vinicunca Mountain!.

Acclimatization:
We recommend you be in Cusco at least 2 days before your trek to be acclimatized to Cusco’s altitude so that you won’t have a problem during the tour.
