Palcoyo Tour 1 day

You will experience what it is like to be at 4900 m.a.s.l. after a not very strenuous hike, surrounded by magical landscapes that look like from another planet. You will see mountains with minerals of different colors, red valleys and when there is no cloud you have spectacular 360° views of the area and the highest mountain of Cusco, the Ausangate (6380 m.a.s.l.).
