PALCCOYO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN ITINERARY
Cusco – Palccoyo – Cusco
We begin our day with pick-up from the hotel at 5:00 am and begin our drive towards the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain trailhead, with an altitude of 4900 m asl (16125 ). Located south of Cusco, we drive for approximately 4hrs in private transport. After 1 hour, we will enjoy our breakfast then we keep driving.
Along the way, we see beautiful Andes mountains as well as lush green valleys, and hundreds of alpacas and llamas. If we are lucky we will stop for vicuñas and observe them in their natural free state. When we get to Apacheta, we will begin our hike towards to Rainbow Mountain. After a 30 minute hike, we will reach the overlook and see the beautiful rainbow mountains. Here we will be able to observe the 360 panoramic views as well as have the opportunity to get closer to the mountains for about an hour making our way back to the transport. Our lunch will be ready at our local house. We return to Cusco by 05:00 pm.
