Tour Details

Considered one of the most popular tours in Cusco. This colorful mountain attracts more than 800 hikers, lovers of nature, cold climates and mountain excursions every day.

It was discovered in 2016 and has since become a popular attraction with impressive natural views out of the ordinary. The colorful colors of the mountain are due to a geological formation, to the time of oxidation and the mixture of marine, lacustrine and fluvial elements.

The oxidation is due to the meeting of minerals dragged by the waters of the mountain range, the winds and the humidity. Thus it gives a magical diversity of tonalities to this mountain. Our guide with extensive knowledge of this attraction will give you more detailed information.

The trip will take you to see the lifestyle of the Andean people, the landscape that surrounds it and the impressive snow-capped mountains that surround and cross Cusco. Highlighting the imposing snowy Ausangate that dominates the southern horizon of Cusco.

Rainbow Mountain Vinicunca is 5,200 meters (17,000 feet) above sea level. So we recommend being fit and acclimatized to avoid altitude sickness. Spend a few days in the city of Cusco.
