The cascading colors of Vinicunca’s Rainbow Mountain have captivated travelers and flooded Instagram feeds, but nothing compares to seeing it in real life. The challenging hike provides gorgeous scenery that is what Peruvians would say were vale la pena. Oh, and it’s not even the only Rainbow Mountain in Peru. What if I told you there was an alternative to the crowds of Vinicunca just a few hours away? At Palccoyo, there are not one, but three rainbow mountains that await. Move over Vinicunca, Palccoyo’s the new rainbow mountain in town.
