Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour Details

The Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain tour will commence from your hotel in Cusco. We will set out early, embarking on a 3.5 hours drive to the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain in Peru. Palccoyo offers three vibrant Rainbow Mountains, a mesmerizing stone forest, and panoramic views of the majestic Ausangate Mountain.

Our day trip will begin from Cusco, after which we will journey through the Sacred Valley, soaking in its serene beauty. After the scenic drive, you will start the Rainbow Mountain trek.

Palccoyo is a highly recommended tourist attraction for those who prefer less strenuous hikes. The walk is much easier compared to Vinicunca. Despite this, be prepared for altitude sickness.

During the dry season, you will find the time to visit and appreciate the vibrancy of the rainbow-striped hillsides. This full day Palccoyo tour will culminate with incredible memories of one of the most unique geological phenomena in the world.

Just like Machu Picchu, this trip promises an experience that will carve itself into your heart. Your day tour will be more than just a visit, it will be a vivid interaction with nature’s spectacular canvas.
