Description

The Palccoyo rainbow mountain is located in the community of Palccoyo at 4,980 meters above sea level, in the Janca natural region, the coloration of the mountain range is due to the type of mineral or rock of which it is composed, the colors are conformations product of tectonism or elevation of the earth’s crust, the formation of the mountain range due to collisions or clashes of different tectonic plates.

This mountain range is the sister of the famous Vinicunca mountain, with more than nine thousand natural hectares have a color similar to the rainbow which gives a cheerful and at the same time mystical. In addition, in this journey you will appreciate a forest of stones, ideal for nature lovers.

This attractiveness is relatively new and many people of the region did not know of this mountain range, since before it was covered by snow, which did not allow to see its coloration; However, due to global warming, the snow has disappeared and it is now possible to appreciate the range of colors in the Palccoyo mountain range.

To make this trip more exciting we connect this 2-day tour to the Queswachaca bridge, a suspension bridge made of vegetable fiber that crosses the Apurimac River in a canyon part and that belongs to the district of Quehue in the province of Canas, department of Cusco.

Currently Queswachaca is the nation’s cultural heritage, we will also visit the four lagoons, formed by the beautiful lagoons of Pomacanchi, Acopia, Asnaqocha and Pampamarca, places where we will appreciate the typical flora and fauna of the place.

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Palccoyo Mountain - 4 lakes.

Our tour begins with the pick-up from your hotel in Cusco, then we will start our trip to the south of Cusco and when we reach the town of Combapata, we will take an unpaved route until we reach the foothills of the Palccoyo mountain, where our experienced Chef will prepare us a delicious breakfast.

Then we start with our trek to the Palccoyo mountain, we can explore the area and enjoy the enigmatic nature where your adventure will be rewarded by unforgettable moments and wonderful landscapes.

We will also visit the stone forest that is in the upper part, the view there is incredible, from where you can see the 3 mountains of colors that this place has and in the background the imposing mountain of Ausangate (the highest mountain in Cusco).

After completing our tour of the Palccoyo mountain we will return to the starting point where our Chef will be waiting for us with the delicious Buffet lunch. Then we will go to the 4 lagoons of the province of Acomayo. We will set up our camp next to the lagoon of Pomacanchi, the first lagoon that we will visit in this tour.

The Pomacanchi lagoon has a maximum depth of 140 meters where you can see trout, pejerreyes, huitas, ccarachis, ch’iñis. We will have a free afternoon to go through this lagoon and at night have our delicious dinner and spend the night in our tents next to the Pomacanchi lagoon.

Day 2: 4 Lakes - Inca bridge (Queswachaca) - Cusco.

On this day we will cross the last Inca Bridge from both sides, but beware, it seems easy, but it takes a lot of courage !. After a delicious breakfast, we will visit the four lagoons: Laguna de Pomacanchi, Acopia, Asnaqocha and Pampamarca or Tungasuca.

After enjoying a quiet moment near the lagoons, we will visit the small Volcano of Pavilions located near the town of Yanaoca. We arrived at the Apurimac River and the impressive Inca suspension bridge (Queswachaca), made of vegetable fiber (Ichu) over the Apurimac river in the district of Quehue.

Its existence dates from the Inca period. Its renovation and maintenance is done once a year by the local inhabitants of the four communities that are around. On the way back to Cusco we will make a last visit to the Inca colonial bridge of Checacupe, where you can see the differences between both bridges.
