Palcoyo Day Hike is a colored mountain similar to the classic Rainbow Mountain but there is not only one mountain in Palcoyo there are 3 different rainbow color mountains like ocher and red colors, with green, blue and white stripes. In Palcoyo also you will see the stone forest and local people dressed in their traditional costumes accompanied by their Llamas and Alpacas.
