The Pallay Poncho or Pallay Punchu Mountain is a new tourist attraction in the Cusco Region, another wonderful gift from nature, and it is already part of the must-do activities for travelers. The local people who live close to this mountain also address this mountain as Condor Sayana (the place where the condor stops) or Pallay Poncho del Apu T’akllo Apacheta, some visitors also call it La Montaña Filudasharp-rainbow Mountain because of its shape.

The excursion will be basically by bus, you will walk for about 2 hours maximum (round trip), depending on the physical condition you are in; remember that before taking this tour, it is required to acclimatize to the high altitude and have a good physical condition.

If you don’t want to walk a lot, we recommend the mountain of 7 colors Palccoyo.
