OVERVIEW: PALCCOYO MOUNTAIN TOUR
Come to see the new mountains of colors of Palccoyo, this mountain range is the extension of the now famous Vinicunca or Mountain of 7 colors, but with better accessibility. Do you want to see the impressive colors of the mountain of 7 colors, but do not want to do the long walk through Vinicunca? There is a little known, but very good alternative. If the walk through Vinicunca is challenging, since it goes up a lot, it is long and the altitude can cause problems for some people, the road from Palccoyo is easier, shorter and mostly flat. Also, since Palccoyo is a new route, it is not well known and there are not many people. It is very likely that you are alone with your group or with some other groups. Your images will be better and you will also see three mountains of colors instead of just one with the classic Vinicunca tour. Get ready for a wonderful scenario of nature and make sure your camera has enough battery!
The pick-up from the hotel will be from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Once together with the whole group we will go south of Cusco, our first stop will be on the colonial bridge of Combapata, built in the year 1604 on the Salcca River. Then we will continue our trip until we reach the Palccoyo viewpoint, which is at 4900 meters above sea level, at this point we can see three mountains of colors. Once reached the viewpoint we will start walking for about 45 minutes to explore the three colorful mountains and also visit the stone forest. Lunch in Palccoyo. After the tour we will return to the city of Cusco, arriving in Cusco approx. 6:00 pm.
