Brief

Journey through an undiscovered land of wild desert landscapes, snow capped peaks, herds of alpaca, and arrive at the ultimate destination - The “Rainbow Mountain”  hidden deep in the Andes.

Throughout your journey you will pass through a vibrant green valley with the impressive Ausangate mountain towering in the distance. You will experience first hand how locals live in the mountains and even have a chance to speak with them. As you get closer to the Rainbow Mountain you will begin to see the first signs of the colored minerals that formed the painted hills. Your guide will explain what makes up the existence of the “Rainbow Mountain”, and finally with one last push you will hike up to a vantage point that gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful landscape that makes up this sacred land.

Tour Detail

The "Rainbow Mountain" in Peru, also known as Vinicunca, is a spectacular place near the snowy Ausangate glacier which is considered a sacred mountain by local people and is one of the most important deities of ancient Cusco. Since pre-Inca times the mountain has been a place of worship and offerings and this tradition continues today.

Most trips that let you see the "Rainbow Mountain" requires a trek of at least 6 days. That has changed with this new itinerary. We have designed this walk so that it can be done as a day trip.

On this walk you will see picturesque villages, beautiful “adobe” houses, herds of llamas and alpacas, and you will have a magnificent view of the glacier Ausangate (6,385 m / 20,945 feet).

With the beauty and uninterrupted solitude, this is a spectacular journey for hikers who love a true outdoor adventure
