Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Checacupe - Palccoyo Rainbow Mountains - The Rock Forest

The adventure begins around 4 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel in our private transportation. You will travel for two hours to the village of Checacupe, where you will stop to visit its iconic bridges from three different eras: the Inca hanging bridge, the colonial, and the republican.

The town is also famous for its church and for being the place where the hero Tupac Amaru II was defeated in an endless struggle for independence. After an hour and a half, you will arrive at the small village of Palccoyo and follow the last stretch to the starting point of the hike; from here, you will have the first views of the main mountain.

You’ll walk at your own pace for about 50 minutes to the Palccoyo viewpoint, appreciating some alpacas grazing in the distance, being greeted by some of the locals accompanied by lovely alpacas, often adorned in the ears or heads as a token of affection.

Reaching the viewpoint, the Palccoyo mountains will dazzle you immediately, as you’ll also find the other two colored hills that compose this attraction. From here, you will have me to appreciate the wonderful scenery and contemplate the imposing Ausangate (6,372 m / 20,900 ).

You will even be able to appreciate part of the Red Valley, whose sediments form the Blood River.

Then, you’ll walk to the rock forest to take an incredible photo observing a geological sample product of millions of years of thawing.

On the way back, we’ll share an open-air meal with the amazing mountain backdrop and finish with the drive back to your hotel in Cusco.
