Tour Details

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. 

Why Kuntur Peru?

Kuntur Peru is a fully locally owned tour operator in Cusco. We are certified local guides with an excellent knowledge of Incas history and culture. As natives, our guides will be sharing some of the astonishing facts on this half day Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour

We offer the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour, both as a small group tour and as a private tour. We invite you to take a moment to check out our reviews on Tripadvisor.

Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain - Palccoyo Cusco

We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco at 0700 AM. Then in our private transport we will be driving you along the South Valley of Cusco to Checacupe. It is a small colonial town. The town houses a colonial church and a rope bridge that was built by Spanish conquistadors resembling Q’eswachaka.

Here we will be stopping so you can use the restrooms and buy some snacks if desired. From here, we will be driving off the road up the hill, closer to the summit of Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain. On our way, we will be passing through some remote communities and schools. This tour offers a closer interaction with the untouched remote communities.

Once at the summit, we will be gradually hiking for 45 minutes to reach the summit. On our way, we will be passing through the stone forest or bosque de piedras. This is a unique sight. You will also get a closer look at the mighty Ausangate Peak that dominates the southern skyline of Cusco on a clear day.

Once you have had your fill of the stunning views of the Ausangate Mountain range and Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain, we will start our descend to the car park. From here, we will be driving you back to Checaupe. Here we will be stopping at a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch, we will be driving you back to Cusco.
