Travel to the Palcoyo Mountain Range and enjoy hiking a moderate-level and accessible trail. Take in scenic views and admire the natural formation of minerals giving the mountains their colorful hues.

Highlights

  • Get to the top of the mountain with a moderate-level trail with few slopes
  • Take in the surrounding scenery of snowcapped mountains
  • Appreciate the calm atmosphere hiking Palcoyo Mountain

Description

The adventure begins with a transfer from your hotel in Cusco to the starting point of the trek to the impressive Palcoyo mountain range. Alike Vinicunca, the 7-colour mountain, Palcoyo acquires its colouration due to minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, among others, accumulated over millions of years, which now offer a visual spectacle. Unlike Vinicunca, the arrival to the Palcoyo mountain range is of a moderate and accessible level since it is a walk without great slopes, reaching a maximum elevation of 4,900 metres above sea level. Upon arrival, enjoy the beautiful view of the mountain range and take a few minutes to appreciate the surroundings calmly thanks to the lower traffic of visitors in the area. After this visit, start the descent and enjoy a picnic-lunch while continuing to enjoy the view. When finished, you are transferred back to your hotel in Cusco.
