Later we begin a walk of approximately two and a half hours until we get to the sharp Mountain of Pallay Poncho. Their pigments of the famous mountain of colors are due to a complex combination of minerals, marine, lacustrine and fluvial sediments.
Throughout history, these sediments have been formed by layers of different lengths due to the collision of tectonic plates in the area. These bands of other minerals ended uprising and became the mountains that we can see today.
Later Pallay Poncho mountain acquired its colors due to the same oxidation of its minerals, exerted by the humidity of the area and their erosion.
The weather in the Pallay Punchu mountain is cold and windy in the mornings; at noon, you can see a drier and sunny climate.
Throughout the trip, you will be able to observe the beautiful landscapes and animals of the area.
