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.
