1 day trek to Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain

Trek to the alternative Rainbow Mountain that Cusco has, Palccoyo offers you wonderful landscape views that was created millions of years ago through natural forces, it can be trekked in 1 day, this hike is not difficult like the trek to the main rainbow mountain “Vinicunca”, since the hike is just 30 min and mostly flat. Altitude sickness is the only problem you could fight with, it is recommended that you rest at least 1 day in Cusco to acclimatize to the altitude.

The Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain, is located in the district of Checacupe, province of Canchis in the Cusco region, it has an altitude of 4.900 m.a.s.l. Nowadays Palccoyo receives just few visitors (around 50 people per day), so this is still off the beaten path for those looking for an easy trek without so many tourists.
