      About this trip

       The Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain tour is ideal for anyone hoping to see the famous rainbow coloured mountains, but not wanting to trek for hours. It is far quieter and more untouched than the classic Vinicunca rainbow mountain. This tour is suitable for all fitness levels, with as many breaks to catch your breath as you need! During this tour you will see 3 different, beautiful coloured mountains. On your way there you will be able to see alpacas and llamas in their natural habitat and afterwards visit a colonial bridge.

      Itinerary

      Day 1
      Palcoyo Rainbow mountain tour

       

      We will pick you up early from your Cusco hotel at around 5:30am. The drive to Palccoyo is approximately 3.5 hours until we make the first stop in Combapata. When we reach the Palccoyo pass, we will walk uphill for approximately 40-50 minutes (5000m/16,400ft). Here you will have spectacular panoramic views of three Rainbow Mountain Palccoyo peaks as well as the highest mountain in the Cusco region (Ausangate).


      We will spend approximately an hour here taking pictures, and enjoying the stunning view. After this, we will make our way back to our private transportation to head to Checacupe where we will visit its stunning colonial Bridge, (we will spend about 20 minutes here to take pictures and explore the area). After this, we will have time to enjoy a delicious lunch made by locals. We will then take our private transportation back to Cusco (approximately 2.5-hour drive). We will be back at Cusco at around 5:00 pm and will drop you at your hotel.


      It is important to mention that the route to go to Palccoyo is new as it is a relatively new attraction, therefore the roads can be very bumpy for about an hour each way as the government has not paved them yet.

      We had a great time in Lima and Cusco. The tours were amazing, the food incredible and the people we met along the way unforgettable. We had a minor set back that the agency was quick to fix. I totally recommend them.
