PALCCOYO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN

The Palccoyo hill is another colorful mountain in Peru with an altitude of 4980 meters above sea level, the landscape here is magnificent since it expects a natural coloration, this coloration is given by the presence of eroding sedimentary stones. What is impressive is how the stones have been shaped to form a set of seven colors. Unlike the Vinicunca mountain, to get to Palccoyo you don't need to walk a lot because the path goes to the foot of this mountain and from there you walk only 20 minutes and you don't need to be in good physical condition since the path is a slight slope . Here you will not only find one colorful mountain but more than three mountains with impressive valleys and animals such as llama and alpaca that abound along the route and belong to the local people of this place. The sacrifice of doing this little walk is rewarded with the unique natural wonders that you will admire and that will surely be an important part of your life.
