Want to visit Rainbow Mountain, but high altitude hiking is not your thing? We have you covered. The 1 Day Trek to Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain or Palccoyo Cusco is an easier option to visit the colored mountains, in contrast to the arduous Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Trek. Popularly known as the alternative Rainbow Mountain trip from Cusco, Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Tour begins at 0400 AM from Cusco. We will be driving you closer to the summit, so you will be reaching with a short and easy 45 minutes hike. The hike takes you through stunning landscapes like the imposing Ausangate Mountain, the tallest and most sacred mountain in Andean mythology. You will also be hiking near the much-photographed, Stone Forest or Bosque de Piedras. Those are natural rock formations towering up in the sky. It gives an illusion of a forest. Rainbow Mountain Peru or Montaña de Siete colores as known to locals, is the second most visited attraction in the Cusco region, after Machu Picchu. Over 1500 travelers visit the mountain daily. Most travelers choose to embark on an hour and a half hike to the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain. The 1 Day Trek to Palccoyo Cusco offers similar views as Vinicunca. Also, the hike to Palccoyo Cusco is much easier and shorter. The highest point of Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Peru is at 4900 meters above sea level (16076 feet). It is highly recommended that you spend at least 3 to 4 days in Cusco and acclimatize to avoid altitude sickness.
