DAY:
Alternative Rainbow Mountain Palccoyo Hike
info Additional Info

The Alternative Rainbow Mountain in Peru has received a lot of attention lately and it is definitely one of the top places to visit in Cusco. When you are in the city of the Incas, we highly recommend doing the Palccoyo hike and get to know these postcard-like mountains and its unique landscape. The Rainbow Mountains in Peru will astonish you immediately because of their variety of colors due to the existing minerals in the soil.

This is not the typical trekking tour to the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain where you will be with hundreds of other tourists fighting to get the best photo with no people on it. This is the alternative rainbow mountain tour on which you will not only see “one” Rainbow Mountain but three. Furthermore, the hike is only 1 hour (1.5 km/0.9 miles each way) instead of 2 hours.

Also, you will not be bothered by large tourist groups around and you might even be accompanied by an alpaca or llama during the hike. With us, you will arrive first at the Alternative Rainbow Mountain and also get to know more about the local community living there.

If you want to see what other travelers said about the tour you can check out the review video of the alternative rainbow mountain.
