This is an alternative excursion to the rainbow mountain in which you will see not “one” rainbow mountain but three incredible mountains full of colors, as well as the mysterious rock forest, a famous attraction.
Andean shamans are well acquainted with this location. Instead of three hours, the walk takes only 40 minutes (1.5 km / 0.9 miles each way).
Furthermore, you will not be bothered by the large crowds of tourists that surround you, and you may even be joined on the walk by an alpaca or llama. You will first arrive at Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain with us and learn more about the local community that lives there.
We will start at 4:30 am, the tour guide will pick up you from your hotel, we will start from Cusco to Cusipata around 5:00 am, the travel will be around 2 hrs, once we arrive we will take our breakfast that will be buffet, then we will continue to Checacupe village where we can visit the Inca – Colonial Bridge, here you will have a chance to buy some snacks, water or something you maybe forgot to buy in Cusco.
After this stop we will continue to the starting point for the hike, here we will prepare our backpacks and equipment for the hike, our guide will give a small briefing for the route, during our hike we will be able to see the Stunning Rainbow Mountains of Palccoyo and if we have enough energy we will visit the Stone Forest located in the highest point, from where we can take spectacular pictures from the mountains, you will have time to walk around the area and take pictures.
After the free time we need to come back to our bus that will carry us to Cusipata where we will take the lunch, after the lunch we will return to Cusco city we will arrive around 4:30 pm the final place will be “Plaza regocijo” located at 1 block away from the Main Square”.
