Discover the Rainbow Mountain and surroundings


AUSANGATE RAINBOW MOUNTAIN or better known by locals as VINICUNCA, only on FULL DAY trek; from the top its geological formations reveal their entire splendor, in contrast to the blue sky. This tour is now the second most popular trek in Cusco after the treks to Machu Picchu.

If you want to be in contact with local people and marvel with spectacular landscapes then you must visit the Rainbow Mountain

I will pick you up 4:30am. Then we are going to set out on a drive through the South Valley. The drive takes around 2 hours to get Pitumarca community where we are going to stop for breakfast. After that we are going to drive you 1:30 hours more to Quesiuno community (4, 326 m / 14, 189 ft. ) where we are going to start with the trekking of 3 hours approx. long to the rainbow mountain (most of the way is going up). On the way up we are going to be able to enjoy amazing landscapes of herds of alpacas and llamas.
When we finally reach our goal the Rainbow Mountains (5, 020 m / 16, 466 ft. ), you will have time to explore the area and take pictures. We will spend approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour (depend of your trekking speed and weather conditions).
