Rainbow Mountain Trek - Full Day

Rainbow Mountain Trek Full Day Tour Package

Vinicunca, also known as the Rainbow Mountain or Mountain of 7 colors, is located to the south of Cuzco, in the Canchis province. It offers its visitors a marvellous panorama of majestic mountains and glaciers such as Ausangate, crystalline rivers, peaceful pastoral scenes, herds of sheep, camelid breeders, and Andean people dressed in their native colorful clothes.

This new route, apart from the established routes, is a real adventure through a wild and untouched landscape where the only encounter you will have is with Vinicunca "the red mountain" and small Quechua - speaking communities, descendents of the Quechuas, who exploit the high Andes plateau.
