The Rainbow Mountain, also called Apu Vinicunca,
is a wonderful place in the Andes. We'll make a journey to
the south of Cusco to challenge ourselves hiking over 5000
meters above sea level!
You will discover great landscapes with awesome colors as well as snowy peaks. Definitely a memorable experience you will not forget.
All Year Long
Early in the morning we will be picking you up from
your hotel in order to reach the village of Cusipata
(travel time from Cusco: 3 hours). Then, we will
provide you a small briefing regarding our tour day
and then we’ll start our hike of 4 Km to reach the
Fascinating landscapes will surprise us as well as the numerous Lamas and Alpacas that locals raise in the highlands. After 2 hours of hiking we will reach the famous Rainbow Mountain (5200 meters above sea level), a geological formation that presents different colors (similar to the Rainbow) because of its mineral composition.
We recommend staying in the Rainbow Mountain about 30 minutes in order to take pictures and admire the landscape. After our experience in Vinicunca, we will have lunch and return to Cusco in the evening.
This tour requires a good physical condition, so we highly recommend being fully acclimatized and bring warm clothes, hiking shoes, gloves, a raincoat, sun block & glasses.
