Rainbow Mountain (Vinicunca) 1 Day

Description

The tour to Rainbow Mountain (Vinicunca) is an impressive day trekking in the Vilcanota mountain range, on a route we call "the 7 Colors Mountain" which is very close to the highest and sacred mountain in the south of Peru called the Ausangate (6,377mts). This "Apu" bearer of life is the Guardian of one of the most pristine ecosystems in the world. Thus, our walk will be accompanied by snow-capped peaks, glaciers, herds of llamas and alpacas, etc. This hike offers a selection of wildlife and very impressive landscapes.

We will pick you up at your hotel at 3:45 AM, then start our incredible adventure driving 3 hours in our private van through the Valle del Sur passing through different towns such as Urcos, Quiquijana until we reach the town of Cusipata, where we will enjoy for a delicious breakfast, then we will continue our journey towards the beginning of the trail called Phulawasipata (4,600 m / 15,091 ft.). Along this road there are stunning views of agriculture terraces, canyons and snowcapped mountains.

Once you reach the start of the trail, our guide will give you a brief instruction of the area and the last scopes to finally start a walk of approximately 1.5 hours for a moderate climb. During the trip we will have the opportunity to appreciate a variety of South American camelids, spectacular ecosystems of this place and beautiful views of the Ausangate mountain.

At approximately 10:00 we will arrive at our destination called Vinicunca or the Rainbow Mountain (5,020 m / 16,466 ft.). Here you will have enough time to enjoy this unique landscape that the geography capriciously formed and you can also take spectacular views of this place that seems hand painted and brush. After our visit to the mountain of colors we will return to the starting point, the walk will take approximately 50 minutes of descent to return to this point, where we will be waiting for our private transport to take us back to the town of Cusipata, where we will enjoy a delicious lunch buffet, and after a short break we will undertake the return trip to Cusco arriving at approximately 5:00 pm.
