Best known as Vinicunca, The Rainbow Mountain is one of the top seller tours in Peru, a fascinating natural wonder located close to the snowy “Apu Ausangate” glacier. You will join our guide at your hotel to ride smoothly across the Andes of Cusco, featuring gorgeous landscapes and old towns full of history, you’ll have the chance to capture the impressive views as you make some stops on route. After a short stop at Cusipata town for breakfast, you’ll continue on to the head of the trail.
Even though the hike is done at a high altitude, you’ll be rewarded once in Vinicunca and its glorious colors. Raising at 5200 meters, this mountain has been considered sacred by local people since ancient times even before the Inca rule, and has been a place of worship and presenting offerings, a tradition that continues alive nowadays.
While you’re there, gaze at the mountain peak of Ausangate, the Red Valley, and take some of the most incredible pictures, with a little luck, accompanied by alpacas and their local owners. Continue to the trail until our private transport takes you to Cusipata for lunch. End off with a private transfer to the comfort of your accommodation.
