After an hour and a half, you will arrive at the small town of Palccoyo and continue the last stretch to the starting point of the walk; from here you will have the first views of the main mountain. You will walk at your own pace for about 50 minutes to the Palccoyo viewpoint, appreciating some alpacas grazing in the distance, being received by some locals accompanied by beautiful alpacas, often adorned in the ears or on the head as a sign of affection.

Once we reach the viewpoint, the mountains of Palccoyo will dazzle you immediately, as well as the other two colored hills, al lof them make up this attraction. From here, you will have time to appreciate the wonderful landscape and contemplate the imposing Ausangate. You will even be able to appreciate part of the Red Valley, whose sediments form the Bloody River. Then, you will walk to the rock forest to take an incredible photo observing a geological sample product of millions of years of melting.

What is the best time to do the excursion to Rainbow Mountain?

Peru is a very large country with many different climates, for that reason it would be very difficult to define a good time to visit different places.

If you want to see one side of the mountain covered and the other side the colors? These dates are the best time.
