We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco at 0700 AM. In our private transport, we will be driving you along the South Valley of Cusco to Checacupe. It is a small colonial village. Here you will have some free time to explore the town and walk on the suspended rope bridge built by Spanish conquistadors.
From here, we will begin our drive up the hill to the trail head. On our way, we will be passing through different communities. Once at the trailhead, our guide will share some tips on hiking and will give you a safety briefing.
All set, we will start climbing gradually to the summit of the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain. On our way, we will also be passing through bosque de piedra or the stone forest. Once at the summit, our guide will give you a guided tour explaining the importance of both Palccoyo and Ausangate in Incan mythology.
Once you have had your fill of the breathtaking views, we will start descending back to the trailhead. Here we will be taking the car back to Checacupe. We will be stopping at a local restaurant for lunch.
After lunch, we will be driving you back to Cusco. We will be dropping you off at Plaza Regocijo at 05:30 PM.
