Explore the rock forest
Participate in an offering to the Pachamama (Mother Earth) and a delicious meal cooked with ancient Andean techniques

Description

Enjoy the beautiful Andean nature and visit one of the most beautiful peaks in Peru, the Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain. It’s one of the most impressive hidden gems that Peru has, and you shouldn’t miss it for any reason while exploring through Cuzco! Be part of this adventure and enjoy the beautiful landscape! This is the alternative excursion to the rainbow mountain, in which you will not only see “one” rainbow mountain but three beautiful mountains full of colors. You will also have the chance to visit a stunning rock forest, a famous place well known by Andean shamans. This is a fairly easy walk, 40 minutes approx. with several stops (1.5 km / 0.9 miles each way). In addition, you will not be disturbed by large groups of tourists as this hidden gem is only known by locals. Also, if you get lucky you may even be accompanied by a wandering llama or alpaca during the walk!

Furthermore, your guide will perform a traditional offering to the Pachamama (Mother Earth in Quechua) and a local restaurant will host you for a traditional Pachamanca lunch (an ancient cooking technique from the Andes). These are traditions that hardly any outsider gets to experience, and we’re sure you will enjoy them!

Who This Experience Is Good For

Anyone interested in the outdoors, culture and great experiences!
