Hike up to Rainbow Mountain and get enchanted by its natural colours
Mountains are related with Mother earth and that is why Andean people consider them as protectors and they are well known as APUKUNA. Apukuna means "divine lords" of the sacred mountains. They have been worshiped since pre-Incan times and are considered most powerful deities. They play a vital role in the daily lives of Andean people. The Andean people show the utmost respect toward the Apukuna and acknowledge their importance in ritual and ceremony.

Juan was an amazing guide! He stopped by our hotel the day before to go over everything with us and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. The Rainbow Mountain hike was hard but he was supportive the whole way and made sure we made it back to the hotel safely while also recommending places in Cusco we should go see.
