Rainbow mountain tour, a full day program departing from cusco peru


The Rainbow mountain tour, is one of the fascinating day hikes to do in cusco peru, a new alternative tour, for people who likes hiking, and reach the high mountains in the andes. The mountain has many colors, where the predominant red gives the unique particularity that amazes people, the real name of the mountain is Vinicunca, but tourist started calling it as the rainbow mountain because of the shape and colors, the summit it at (5. 100mt, 17. 000 ft).

If you like Nature, get away from the stress of the city, and see incredible mountains, lets hike the rainbow mountain. This tour offers a great opportunity to see llamas, alpacas, at their natural habitat.

We cover 3. 5 miles in about 3 hours of walk as average, we start hiking at "4, 500 mt, 17. 060 ft", and reach 5100mts. If you are concerned about the altitude, I always bring emergency oxygen bottle, and there is possibility to hire a horse, all my tours are set in private service, with daily departures along the year.
