Palcoyo Mountain Tour

7 reviews | 100 travellers
Although the walk was a bit difficult for me, the experience was good. The only 2 annoyances we had, was the driver was going too fast and that caused us dizziness and that lunch did not include anything to drink.

Palcoyo Mountain Tour

First thing in the morning at 4 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and board a minibus. From there, we'll set off to the town of Cusipata, located two and a half hours away.

Having reached Cusipata, we'll fuel up for the day ahead with a hearty breakfast before driving to Pitumarka and onwards to our destination: Palcoyo, also known as the new Rainbow Mountain.

Leaving the minibus behind, we'll embark on an hour and a half trek through the impressive mountain landscapes. The striking rainbow of colours of Palcoyo is amazing, and you'll feel as though you've travelled to another world.

After enjoying the fascinating natural phenomena of Palcoyo and taking plenty of photos, we'll head to a local restaurant for a delicious buffet lunch.

We'll then return to the minibus for the journey back to hotels in Cusco, where you'll be dropped off around 6 pm.
