Rainbow Mountain Hike 1Day

The Rainbow Mountain tour in Peru is one of the best alternatives and greatest options for a day tour, an extra day in Cusco will make a difference if you choose to go into the Rainbow Mountain tour, this is a new attraction that had captivated the people, the views, the scenery, the beauty is just difficult to describe, our Rainbow Mountain tour is an authentic experience and unique opportunity to enjoy the Andes and the Ausangate mountain majesty. The magical environment of the Vinincunca Mountain became the most beautiful day hike in all Peru and South America.


I will go to pick you up at your hotel, we will start our tour by driving all the way to the south of Cusco, after about 3 hours following the asphalt road, and then 1 hour following a road until we get to the head trail. we will get great views of the valleys, small villages, local people, alpacas and llamas on the Way.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fredy was an excellent tour guide. We were picked up from our hotel on time and the transportation vehicle was very comfortable, his driver was beyond excellent in that winding road. Fredy walked at our pace a lot slower than his, but he catered to us in every way possible way he could. I would definitely recommend his service for his friendly professional manner. The rainbow maintain is a bit strenuous in certain areas but definitely worth seeing.
