Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain and Inca bridge - 1 Day

This fantastic rainbow mountain tour to Palccoyo you can combine with the last Inca suspension bridge called Queswachaca, these two unique places you can visit in one full day, Palccoyo rainbow mountain & Queswachaca bridge is a long day, but it is worth doing it, especially when having only one day left in Cusco Peru.

Palccoyo or Tres Rainbow, the alternative Rainbow mountain in Cusco, is a destination that has gained fame due to the coloration in the sediments of this part of the Andes, like the Vinicunca, but with better accessibility which allows enjoying spectacular views.

The place, still little known and far from many tourists, is located in the community of Palccoyo in the district of Checacupe, at 4,900 meters above sea level. To get there takes about three to four hours of bus ride to the southeast and from the city of Cusco.

Itinerary

Cusco – Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain – Cusco.

We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and set off in our private vehicle, heading southeast in the direction of Puno. After driving around 3 hours and thirty minutes, taking us through the typical high Andes scenery of the Cusco region, we will arrive at our first destination: Palccoyo viewing point, with its fine vista of the rainbow-colored mountain peak and the entire Palccoyo valley. From here, the brief ascent on foot to view the rainbow mountain more closely is not a difficult walk.

The ascent is gradual, along a good trail through pastureland, with spectacular views of Mount Ausangate and other mountains of the Andes. However, the altitude may affect some walkers during the gradual climb from 4787 m / 15,705 feet to 4891 m / 16,046 feet. Travelers are advised to spend a few days in Cusco first to acclimate. After lunch, we will drive for around 90 minutes to the historic Inca suspension bridge known as Q’eswachaka.

This legacy of the Inca empire has survived over the centuries thanks to villagers from the three rural Andean communities who each year have maintained the custom of rebuilding their rope bridge as part of an annual ceremony. In the afternoon, a three-hour and thirty-minute drive across the high plains of the Andes will take us back to the city of Cusco, where we will arrive at around 7:30 pm, and we will drop you off at your hotel.

Maximum Altitude: 4.980 m.
Food: Breakfast and lunch.
Distance of walking: 02 Km.
Highlights: Spectacular views of the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain, Ausangate Mountain, Inca suspension bridge known as Q’eswachaka, and the Vilcanota river.
