Day Tour to Palccoyo Mountain
Day 1: (Cusco – Checacupe - Cusco) Full Day Hike
04:00 a.m.Pick up - Transportation to Checacupe
The adventure begins very early with our team picking you up from your hotel at 06:00 am and heading to the small village of Checacupe, there, we will make a short stop to see an inca and a
colonial bridge and also to grab some last-minute items like drinks, snacks, sunblock, rain poncho, etc. After the short stop we continue one more hour to the base camp. Once we arrive there, we take a short and gradual uphill walk (30-45 minutes) to the Palcoyo Pass (4880m/16,000ft). Here you will have spectacular panoramic views of the 3 Rainbow Mountains and the spectacular Palccoyo peaks as well, as the highest mountain in the Cusco region (Ausangate) and also the Stone Forest in the highest point. We will spend 1 hour at the pass taking pictures and enjoying the spectacular view.
Once we are done enjoying the scenery we walk back down by the same way to the base camp. We now take our private transport and we come back. On the way we will stop to visit the 4 lakes in the way, and after we will stop in the village called Cusipata to enjoy a delicious, freshly prepared, hot lunch. After lunch, we will catch our private van back to Cusco. We will drop you off at Regocijo Plaza about 17:00.
