Rainbow Mountain Palccoyo Full Day

1 Day from $ USD 30.00

The Palccoyo rainbow mountain (4,700 m / 15,419 ft), is located in the town of the same name Palccoyo in the department of Cusco-Peru.
It is a truly magical landscape where we can appreciate three rainbow mountains, wide red valleys and also in this trip there is a geological beauty, Stone Forest where the rocks that stand out seem to have landed from another planet that gives it a joyful atmosphere and at the same time mystical place, which is perfect for lovers of nature and trekking in the Peruvian Andes.

This is the destination where we will discover and enjoy unique views such as the snow-capped Apu Ausangate (the highest and most sacred mountain in Cusco), beyond the splendid panorama that this route offers. Throughout the trip you can see several places such as the ancient Inca, colonial and republican bridges, small villages in the Vilcanota Valley, Andean people grazing their llamas and alpacas, we will also observe wild animals.

Rainbow Mountain Palccoyo receives far fewer visitors and requires far fewer uphill hikes, making it a great way to admire Peru’s natural wonders without having to fight for the best vantage point. If you are looking for a destination like this, this is the right alternative.
