  • Rainbow Mountain Palccoyo Tour 1 Day

This excursion is very different from the usual Vinicunca Tour, Palccoyo is a mountain of Colors located in the town of Checacupe, on this tour to the Palccoyo mountain we will have the opportunity to appreciate a great variety of South American camelids, we can also have beautiful views of the Vilcanota mountain range.
It is also a great option for those traveling with their children, this tour is perfect for travelers who do not usually take long walks and want to see the colorful mountains of this region with a minimum of effort and walk a full day through the mountains of Colors. Although Palccoyo is at a high altitude, the trail itself is short and relatively flat and much less visited than Vinicunca Mountain.
