Rainbow Mountain Trek
Embark on a full-day guided excursion to discover the natural wonder of Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca, located in the Andes of Peru. Trek to the summit and marvel at the vibrant colours of the mountain's layered sedimentary rocks, ranging from deep reds to vibrant yellows and mesmerizing blues, creating a unique and unforgettable sight. With a knowledgeable guide to lead the way and a delicious lunch included.
The tour begins with an early morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco. Enjoy a scenic 2 - 2.5 hour drive through the stunning landscapes of the Andes, passing by traditional Andean villages and picturesque valleys, until we reach Phulawasipata (4,625m / 15,173 feet). Upon arrival at the trailhead you will begin the trek. The uphill walk is challenging but rewarding, and the stunning vistas of the surrounding landscapes make it all the more worthwhile. It takes approximately 1 hour 45 minutes to reach the summit of Vinicunca (5,036m / 16,522 feet). You will also have the opportunity to appreciate the Red Valley from a beautiful viewpoint.
At the summit there's time to take photos and enjoy the views before trekking back down to the vehicle, following the same route. After the trek, you will stop in the town of Cusipata for lunch before returning to Cusco.
