During a trip to Peru you cannot miss a visit to the Rainbow Mountains. Every day thousands of visitors come to the ancient capital of the Inca Empire to admire the natural beauty surrounding Cusco. Tourists of all nationalities challenge high altitudes and harsh temperatures to be able to admire the splendid colors of the Vinicunca Mountain and the Palcoyo mountain range.
Not everyone knows that during the pandemic a geological formation with similar characteristics was discovered between the provinces of Canchis and Canas: the Pallay Punchu mountain,part of the Apu T'akllo massif (4720-4790 m above sea level).
Pallay Punchu resembles a traditional and colorful Andean poncho. In fact, the Quechua term Pallay means "shape of the Inca fabric".
Undoubtedly Pallay Punku will be part of the long list of must-see tourist attractions in Cusco.
