HOW HIGH IS THE PALLAY PONCHO?

The highest point is 4,790 meters above sea level; However, the route starts from the city of Cusco, passing through towns such as Layo and Sicuani until reaching the starting point of the walk is at 4,500 masl.

WHAT IS THE DISTANCE AND TRAVEL TIME FROM CUSCO PALLAY PONCHO?

The Pallay Poncho Mountain is located 194 km from the city of Cusco and it takes approximately 14 hours to go and return.

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED AGE TO HIKE THE PALLAY PONCHO MOUNTAIN?

The recommended age to hike the Pallay Poncho Mountain  is from 12 years old. In the case of traveling with a minor as a companion, it is suggested that they go under the care of a responsible adult.

Throughout the trip you will be able to observe beautiful landscapes and animals of the area. In addition, very close to the Pallay Poncho mountain you can see a beautiful lagoon, this makes this mountain look spectacular and is a very attractive destination.

WHAT IS THE BEST SEASON TO VISIT PALLAY PONCHO?

The best season to visit the Pallay Poncho mountain is from April to October where the climate is dry and without rain. In the month of November to March it is recommended to always wear a rain poncho and dress warmly.

CAN I SUFFER FROM ALTITUDE SICKNESS IN PALLAY PONCHO MOUNTAIN?

Cusco is located at about 3300 meters above sea level, which is why people who travel from lower levels suffer from altitude sickness “Soroche”, this originates because at higher altitudes less oxygen is contained than those found at sea ​​level, so the body works harder to get the oxygen it needs, which is why for long walks it is recommended at least two days in Cusco to start.

The symptoms of altitude sickness are headache, tiredness, nausea, vomiting, sleeping problems, loss of appetite, breathing problems. Most of the time the symptoms will be mild, but if they get worse, consult a doctor or contact our offices.

Coca tea is a recommended infusion for this illness, so inside the accommodation it is always offered to counteract altitude sickness.

You must remember that you come to enjoy a trip through wonderful trails with people who will always be willing to help you, so you can relax and enjoy every moment.

DO I NEED TO HAVE TRAVEL INSURANCE TO GO TO PALLAY PONCHO?

To protect your trip, it is recommended to buy travel insurance, having insurance before the trip is highly recommended, we have agreements with companies that provide this service that will make your trip more peaceful and pleasant in Peru.

WHY IS IT CALLED PALLAY PONCHO MOUNTAIN?

According to various investigations carried out on the site, the multicolored tones of the mountain are similar to the ponchos used in Peru. The poncho is an ancestral and contemporary garment that crosses borders and times. This garment is made by both men and women, with very striking colors and geometric designs that explain their thinking and ideology of the people of the Andes, in these ponchos they capture their plants, gods, birds, and daily life.

Normally the ponchos are woven from the wool of sheep, llamas, alapacas. They are dyed with natural dyes extracted from minerals and wild plants. In the case of the Apu ta’cllo Mountain, it is similar to the poncho of the Andes of Cusco, whose warping style is called Pallay.

WHY DOES PALLAY PONCHO MOUNTAIN HAVE THOSE COLORS?

The colors of the Pallay Poncho mountain  are due to its mineral composition: the pink color is due to the red clay, mud-stones (mud) and arilites (sand). whitish, due to the white quartz sandstone. The different browns and purples, due to limonites and marls, rich in calcium carbonate.

The red is formed by clays (iron) and clays belonging to the upper tertiary. The green is due to the compound of phyllites and clays rich in ferro magnesium. The earthy brown is a product of the fanglomerate formed by rock with manganese from the Quaternary. Finally, the mustard yellow color due to the calcareous sandstones rich in sulfur minerals.

WHAT IS THE DIFFICULTY OF MOUNTAIN PALLAY PONCHO?

Walking for 3 or 4 hours (depending on the physical condition of the walker) is not dangerous and requires moderate-high physical effort. There are sections of steep slopes up and down. However, one of the biggest difficulties is the cold weather and the icy wind. The altitude of the area can cause altitude sickness or soroche. 2 days in the city of Cusco are recommended to acclimatize.

What to expect from our

Cusco Tours

Nothing gets you closer to a country than walking through it, and we’ve got trips to suit walkers of all levels and interests.

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?

 Andean Great Treks

All our Walking trips are graded from ‘Easy’ through to ‘Challenging to Tough’. On our online trip itineraries you’ll find a chart showing the daily walk distances, timings and information on the route including the terrain, altitude. Generally, no specific training is needed but you might feel more comfortable if you’ve got out walking a few times in the lead-up to your trip.

WHAT WILL THE GROUP BE LIKE?

 Andean Great Treks

As with all our trips, every group is different but the ‘average’ group consists of roughly half couples and half solo travellers – all sharing a passion for exploring the world on foot. You’ll always have someone to keep you company along the route, but you don’t always have to walk together. Wherever possible your Andean Great Treks leader will allow everyone to walk at their own pace, regrouping regularly along the route.

IS PERU SAFE TO TRAVEL

 Andean Great Treks

Like many other countries in developing destinations, the region’s beauty and uniqueness are countered by inequality and lack of investment. This has led to crime rates (mainly theft and scams) not being uncommon in the larger cities. We know this doesn’t sound very attractive, but it’s important to mention it regardless. Most experienced and well-traveled visitors will understand this well and not be too concerned. However, having said this, it is our duty to take care of you during your visit. That’s why we present you here with a few recommendations to be extra safe. Avoid walking alone at night on empty streets. Don’t flaunt valuables! If going for a walk or going on public transport, be sensible and avoid showing off expensive items such as expensive watches and jewelry. Be careful of pickpockets! Don’t leave your bags anywhere that doesn’t look safe, and make sure to take them with you.

MAY I SUFFER THE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS IN CUSCO?

 Andean Great Treks

Soroche, or mountain sickness, is a reality for most people arriving in Cusco by plane from sea level and needs to be treated with respect. It’s vital to take it easy, not eating or drinking much on arrival, even sleeping a whole day just to assist acclimatization (coca tea is a good local remedy). After three days at this height most people have adjusted sufficiently to tackle moderate hikes at similar or lesser altitudes. Anyone considering hiking the major mountains around Cusco will need time to adjust again to their higher base camps.

If you do encounter altitude-related health problems, many hotels and restaurants have oxygen cylinders to help; alternatively, for serious cases, try call any of the clinics that are in Cusco, most of them have staff that speak English, for a greater facility in your attention it is recommended to have a travel insurance that covers medical expenses.

CUSCO DAY TOURS FAQs

HOW TO GET TO CUSCO?

International flights to the capital city of Lima are plentiful but once there, you need to find a way to Cusco which is about 1100 km (684 miles) away. The quickest way to get to Cusco from Lima is to fly – it takes about 55 minutes. I don’t recommend traveling by bus because it takes about 24 hours – only do it if you intend to break the journey along the way, to visit other places.

Renting a car to travel from Lima to Cusco is not recommended. The roads are rough, and you could find yourself lost or face to face with one of the other dangers that come with traveling in unfamiliar territory.

HOW CAN I VISIT THE SACRED VALLEY FROM CUSCO?

The easiest way to explore the Sacred Valley from Cusco is on a guided full day tour that picks you up and drops you off from your hotel. The market in Pisac and Inca ruins in Ollantaytambo are the principal stops, though travelers with more time on their hands will find plenty more to see and do. It’s also possible to take a local bus or taxi into the Sacred Valley and do independent exploration.

HOW CAN I VISIT RAINBOW MOUNTAIN FROM CUSCO?

Rainbow Mountain, or Vinicunca as it’s known by locals, has become a popular hike in the Cusco region. It’s possible to visit Rainbow Mountain in one (very long) day from Cusco or you can divide the trip into a two-day itinerary. While the hike isn’t very difficult and doesn’t have many steep inclines, Vinicunca is in a high elevation region (the highest part of the trail is 17,060 ft or 5,200 m) and you should spend time acclimating before starting the hike.

HOW MANY DAYS SHOULD I VISIT CUSCO?

We are not afraid to say that Cusco is a place where every traveler ends up at least once during the trip around Peru, and it is hard to tell what is the right length of stay.
If your primary reason why to visit Cusco is to get to Machu Picchu, you still should spend here at least two days to acclimatize (despite the fact Machu Picchu is at a lower elevation than Cusco, some people still suffer from altitude sickness), and during this time you can explore the city and Sacred Valley.
From our personal experience, we think that the longer you can stay in Cusco it is better. Some travelers with limited time even revolve their entire itinerary around Cusco – this only proves how rich the city is in terms of sightseeing, architecture, and activities.
Cusco has so many things to see and do, not only within the city limits but mostly outside, that it is not a problem to spend here weeks. If you are flexible, sit down, and write down all one-day and multi-day treks you would like to do from Cusco, and you should get the optimal number of days for you.

WHERE TO STAY IN CUSCO

There are so many things to see and do in Cusco and its surroundings that the city certainly deserves more than one day of your time.

To enjoy your days in Cusco the most, it is essential to choose the right accommodation. The good news is that Cusco has a great network of hotels for every type of traveler, from cheap hostels to luxurious mansions. That’s why your only job is to find a hotel in a location that suits you the best.

We recommend staying close to Centro Historico unless you want to stay away from crowds. We’ve selected the three best hotels in Cusco, so feel free to get inspired.

  • Budget | Cusco Bed and Breakfast – Spacious and clean rooms, comfortable beds, very quiet at night, excellent location.
  • Mid-range | Tierra Viva Cusco Centro – Providing a tranquil environment, beautiful rooms and also has one of the top-rated locations in Cusco.
  • Luxury | JW Marriott El Convento Cusco – The hotel features impressive interiors, has a charming colonial courtyard, luxury rooms, and Cusco’s cathedral or main square are only three blocks away.

WHAT TO EAT IN CUSCO

In recent years, Peruvian cuisine has gained popularity in the world’s culinary landscape, but for the freshest (and most authentic) specialty dishes, Cusco will not disappoint. Most Peruvian dishes carry big flavor not seen in other Latin and South American fare. You may have already tried popular dishes like ceviche (a cold dish of fresh raw fish with spicy citrus flavors) or lomo saltado (stir fried beef with fries). If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try Cuy (roasted guinea pig – yes, the American household pet) or charbroiled alpaca (also known as llama). Other delicious traditional dishes include adobo (a pork stew with corn beer), tamales, choclo con queso (boiled corn with local cheese) and the vegetarian stew capchi de setas. As far as vegetables go, Peru produces more than 4,000 varieties of potato, so you’ll find many dishes centered on them like papas a la huancaina (boiled potatoes with a spicy cheese sauce) and causa (a potato casserole with a variety of meat). Other staple veggies include corn and avocados. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, check your pulse.

For a taste of traditional dishes, head to PACHAPAPA or the award-winning CHICHA (visitors and locals recommend getting reservations well in advance). Peruvian cuisine often mingles with Asian influences, inspired by the culture brought by indentured servants and immigrants who came to Peru dating back to the original Spanish rule in the country. For a sampling of the Asian/Peruvian fusion cuisine, visit LIMO.  If you’re really looking to splurge on a fine dining experience, try MAP Cafe. Located in the courtyard of the Pre-Columbian Art Museum in a glass shipping container, the fare is more contemporary Peruvian cuisine. You can also kick-start your day with coffee and breakfast at Jack’s Cafe, which serves breakfast all day. Many of the most popular restaurants are centrally located near Plaza de Armas.
