Day 1: Rainbow Mountain Range of Palccoyo – Colorful mountain full day

The pick-up time will be between 04:30am and 05:00am (we suggest that you acclimatize at least one day in the city of Cusco before starting this tour). Once together with the whole group (16 people maximum), we will head south of Cusco for approximately 2h30, until we reach the district of Pitumarka, where we will have our delicious breakfast, prepared by our experienced chefs. After a break and purchase of sweets, chocolates, water, cookies, we will continue our journey towards the district of Combapata.

Before reaching the town, we will make a stop to take photos of the attraction of the colonial bridge of Combapata, later and for about 1 hour and 30 minutes to the left bank of the Salcca River. By a dirt road, we will continue our journey. In this section we will see native alpacas in beautiful mountain landscapes. Finally we will reach the community of Palccoyo, located at 4100 meters. From this point we will have privileged views of the colorful mountain range of Palccoyo, with its three mountains of visible colors. We will also enjoy the view of the great valley of stones.

This is an excellent option for people who do not like to hike.
