Palccoyo Mountain Trek Full Day

  • 12 hrs
  • Wifi Available
  • Min Age : 12+
  • Pickup : Hotel

You want to see the stunning colors from the rainbow mountain, but the long hike up Vinicunca scares you? There is a little-known but great alternative. If the hike up Vinicunca is challenging as it is going up a lot, is long, and the altitude can cause problems to some people, the way from Palccoyo is easier, shorter and mostly flat. Moreover, as Palccoyo is a new route, you will also most likely be alone with your group or with a few other groups. Your pictures will then be better, and you will also see 3 rainbow mountains instead of just one with the classic tour to Vinicunca. This tour is a must-do in the area.
