FAQSPalcoyo Rainbow Mountain 1 Day Tour

What is the Rainbow Mountain?

The Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain appearance is due to “a complex geological history of marine, lake and river sediments”. These sediments, transported by the waters that once covered the area, date from between the Tertiary and Quaternary periods, that is, between 65 and two million years ago.

Over time, the sediments formed the layers that today show off the strips that attract tourists.
