1 Day Tour to Pallay Poncho Rainbow Mountain

Peru leaves no wonder for its imposing and incomparable natural attractions. On the Langui lagoon, located at 4,650 meters above sea level, stands a mountain of colors baptized as “Pallay Poncho” because it has the shape of the typical garment of the South Andean region, which has become the sensation among the Cuzco.

The place is beautiful. There you can see yourself, under that blue mountain sky, the Langui lagoon and the mountain, which make it a dream place, a must-see; reaching this attraction is not difficult if you have the desire and a good physical condition.

According to the authorities, the “Pallay Poncho” mountain was discovered during the time of quarantine by the covid-19 pandemic by community members when they crossed its slopes on the way home and, later, they gave notice for its promotion as a new tourist destination.
