Palccoyo Cusco Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour

Palccoyo Cusco Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour is one of the popular full day trips in Cusco. Often referred to as the alternative Rainbow Mountain Peru, this off the beaten path experience is easier to visit than the traditional Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Trek. 

On this full day Palccoyo Cusco Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour we will be driving you closer to the summit. It is just a 45 minutes hike from the car park at 4900 metres above sea level. The route offers views of beautiful landscapes. 

Our full day Palccoyo Cusco Rainbow Mountain Tour is more than the Rainbow Mountain itself. It takes you to a remote town called Checacupe, home to a colonial bridge that resembles Qeswachaka. This bridge however was built during the colonial era by Spaniard replicating the traditional Inca bridge. 

We will be passing through different remote communities. You will also have an opportunity to get an insight to the life and culture of the Andean people living in this remote region. 

The highest point of Palccoyo Cusco Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour is at 5200 metres above sea level. It is however important that you spend at least 3 days in Cusco before this high altitude experience to avoid altitude sickness.

Itinerary

Day 1

Day 1: Palccoyo Cusco Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour

We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco at 0700 AM, then in our private transport, we will be driving through the South Valley of Cusco to a colonial town, Chechaupe. Here we will have a short break. 

This is the last major town before reaching Palccoyo, so if you want to buy water, snacks or use the restrooms, you can do it here. 

Checacupe is also home to a colonial church and a rope bridge. If desired, you can visit them. Please note the entrance fees to these attractions are not included in the price. 

We will then drive you up the hill through a scenic route. You will get to see and interact with locals. Often we encourage local kids to join us so they can spend some time with us and know about the traditions. 

From the car park, we will begin with a gradual hike for 45 minutes. On our way up, we will be crossing the Stone Forest or bosque de piedras. Rocks here look towering high up. These are natural rock formations. 

Once we reach the summit of the Rainbow Mountain, you will get a panoramic view of the mighty Ausangate peak. It is the tallest and the sacred peak in the region. 

We will then spend some time here so you can immerse in the tranquility of the Andes. Once you have had your fill, we will hike back down to the car park. We will then drive you to Checacupe where we will be stopping for lunch. 

After lunch, we will be driving back to Cusco City. We will be dropping you off at Plaza Regocijo a block away from Plaza de Armas at around 06:00 PM.
