As in Rainbow Mountain Vinicunca, an extraordinary geological process aligned the different strata of the earth in multicolour layers creating a unique effect. From the viewpoint of Palcoyo you can see the 3 colorful mountains in all their magnitude and lonely immensity. In the same place there is a curious forest of stones, which as its name suggests, it is about peaks of rock from the height of trees that look like a true geological labyrinth.

While Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain boils with thousands of tourists every day, only 20 kilometers to the south is not one, but three mountains of colors resting in complete solitude. Of ocher and red colors, with green, blue and white stripes, the dazzling Cordillera de Colores Palcoyo is visited by a few travelers a day. Reaching it only requires a gentle 1-hour walk without a slope, transforming it into a less demanding alternative to the long trek to Vinicunca

Pick up time at the hotel will be between 5:30 – 6:00 am.

We will pick you up very early in the morning to start this Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain trek with a trip of 3 and a half hours, less visited alternative and less physically demanding to Rainbow Mountain Trekking. We will see native alpacas in mountainous landscapes until we reach the point where we will start a hike. After 45 minutes of leisurely pace, we will reach 5000 m altitude, where we will have access to privileged views of this part of the mountain range, with three mountains of colors visible from the highest point. Then, we will return to our vehicle to move to the place where we can have lunch and have a little rest, before starting the return to Cusco, where we will finish our activity.
