Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour – Palccoyo Cusco

The full day Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour is the best alternative to those not keen on hiking the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain. Just as Machu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain tops the bucket list of many travellers while visiting Cusco.

This full day tour is an easier option. Unlike the trek to Vinicunca, the trip to Palccoyo begins at 0700 AM. We will be driving you closer to the summit. It just takes a 45 minutes of gradual hike through some picturesque highlands including the Stone Forest (Bosque de piedras).

This is a high altitude experience. We highly recommend you to spend at least two days in Cusco before the trek to avoid altitude sickness. To offer you the best experience, we operate this in small groups. We also offer private tours to Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain.

The best time to visit Palccoyo Rainbow Mountains is during the dry season April to November. During the rainy season the trail gets slippery and often the colors of Palccoyo are covered in fog.
