The rainbow mountain Full Day
Enjoy the natural colors of the Colores Cusco Mountain, walking through some isolated communities, where you will be able to interact with the locals who still keep the culture alive. You will see snow-capped peaks, herds of llamas, glaciers and turquoise lakes, all within an incredibly colorful mountain range. The trekking is one of the quietest in the region, you probably won't see another trekker.
The trek offers a selection of wildlife including condors, vicuñas, wild cats and pumas. The colorful sandstone mountains in the Vinicunca area are probably the coolest thing you'll ever see in Peru.
Pick up from your hotel at 3:30 am, we will have 3 hours through the South Valley to reach the start of the trail in Quesiuno (4,326 m / 14,189 ft.). During the trip we will see fields and snowy landscapes.
When we arrive at our first stop we will have a breakfast that will be provided by our company, then we will begin the quiet walk. Immediately you will be surprised to see alpacas and llamas. On the way we will also have the Ausangate company the most important for the Incas.
After a hike of approximately 3 hours, we reach our destination Monte Arco Iris Vinicunca (5,020 m / 16,466 ft.).
