Palcoyo the Rainbow Mountain
Posted on : 04 March 2021
Thousands of travelers go to the Vinincunca mountain every day, however about 20 kilometers away there is a rainbow mountain of beauty similar to Vinincunca and it is the Palcoyo mountain. This mountain offers you its natural beauty in colors like red, green, blue, and white.
How is the tour of rainbow Mountain Palcoyo?
You must first go from Cusco to Checacupe. It is approximately 3 hours by bus. If you book the Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain tour with Peru private tours, we will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco (which is safer and easier for you) and we will provide you with a buffet breakfast in Checacupe.
Once we get to the Palcoyo parking lot, we will start the hike to the top of this mountain for an hour (approx), the hike is quiet and there are no slopes to climb. When you reach the top, you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful natural scenery of Rainbow Mountain.
On the way back you can have delicious New Andean meals, served in restaurants of local people (in this way we can help the development of local towns).
The rainbow Mountain Palcoyo tour will take you all day.
Which is the best Rainbow Mountain Palcoyo or Vinicunca tour?
If you like to push yourself and are in good physical condition, the Vinincunca tour is for you.
On the other hand, if you like to walk slowly, without doing much, the Palcoyo tour is for you.
NOTICE: Currently the rainbow Mountain Palcoyo is not very visited so your photos will be much better than Vinincunca.
