Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Trek 1 Day

Overview
  • Dia 1.- Cusco / 7 lagoons of Ausangate

The Palccoyo mountain is another colorful mountain of Peru with an altitude of 4980 meters above sea level, the landscape here is magnificent since it awaits a natural coloration, this coloration is given by the presence of sedimentary stones in erosion. The impressive thing is how the stones have been formed to form a set of seven colors.
Unlike the Vinicunca mountain is that to reach Palccoyo you do not need to walk much because the road goes to the foot of this mountain and from there walk only 20 minutes and you do not need to be in good physical condition since the journey is one slight inclination.
Here you will not only find a colorful mountain but more than three mountains with impressive valleys and animals such as the llama and alpaca that abound in the journey of the route and belong to the local people of this place.
The sacrifice of doing this little walk is rewarded with the unique natural wonders that you will admire and that will surely be an important part of your life.
