Tour Details

While the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain swarms with thousands of tourists every day, just 20 kilometers to the south is PALCOYO, not one, but three colorful mountains resting in complete solitude. Of ocher and red colors, with green, blue and white stripes, the dazzling Cordillera de Colores Palcoyo is visited by a few travelers a day. Reaching it only requires a gentle 1-hour walk with no slope, making it a less demanding alternative.


When the number of visitors increased greatly to the 7-color mountain in 2017, it was when the residents of Palcoyo (an Andean community) realized that they also had an attraction that resembled the 7-color mountain. They had the red mountains of Palcoyo, which only they knew.

were organized internally. They understood the benefits that the tourist activity brought. They began to promote and pave the way for those red mountains, which are three in total and still, as a plus, have their stone forest that completes the adornment of the landscape. This is how Palcoyo became known during the year 2018, he went throughout Peru and continued around the world. Thanks to its visitors who increasingly recommended the 7-color mountain as an alternative tour.

An incredible experience! We went on 3 days to Machu Picchu, Humantay Lagoon, and Rainbow Mountain. We made the pre-reservation before the trip and had all the necessary support for the tours, with qualified guides, safe transportation, well-defined schedules, and punctuality. Our guides Valter and Evelin were very attentive and knowledgeable. On the last day, our flight was in the late afternoon, and they dropped us off at the airport. I highly recommend Tayra and Jenny, who organized our tours! ♥️ (Google Reviews)
