Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour

Make your inquiry

Experience the best of the Rainbow Mountains in Peru on this full-day Cusco to Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain tour. This alternative Rainbow mountain tour is easier than the classic Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain trek.  Rainbow Mountains are popular attractions and are the second most visited tourist attraction in Cusco after Machu Picchu. The colors of Palccoyo are the result of mineral deposits. This full day tour offers an insight into the life of the local communities who live in the untouched region. 


Palccoyo Cusco is a part of the Andes Mountain Range. The trek offers a closer view of the mighty Ausangate Mountain. Although Palccoyo hike is relatively shorter than Vinicunca as we drive you closer to the summit ссылка hydra, it is a high-altitude experience. The high altitude Palccoyo peak nestles at 4900 meters above sea level.  It is imperative that you spend at least 3 days in Cusco before this full-day tour to avoid altitude sickness.  The best time to visit Palccoyo Cusco is during the dry season, between March and November. During the rainy season, the path leading up gets slippery. Because of the altitude the mountain often gets covered in snow during the rainy season.

Thanks SAMEX

Rated 5 out of 5

We wanted to do the Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley tour but ended up hiking to Palccoyo with SAMEX. It was relatively an easier experience. Mateo is fantastic.
