We speak of the “Cordillera Rainbow of Palccoyo”, a destination that has gained fame due to the coloration in the sediments of this part of the Andes, as the Vinicunca, also with better accessibility allows us to enjoy spectacular views. The place, still little known and far from many tourists, is located in the community of Palccoyo in the district of Checacupe, at 4,900 meters above sea level. To get there you take about three to four hours of travel to the southeast and from the city of Cusco.
The Mountain of the Seven Colors of Palccoyo is a set of peaks dyed in colors similar to the Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain), due to a process of mineralization during millions of years.
The view of the Ausangate mountain covered with snow is impressive. Once we are at the top of our point of view, we will have the Vilcanota Mountain Range in front of us. You will have all the time to rest and take pictures.
