Description

Be dazzled by the Vinicunca Mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain, on this full-day adventure through the Peruvian Andes to the amazing spot. Follow an expert guide through breath-taking landscapes to a natural rainbow painted across the mountain ridges, a one-of-a-kind sight.

Start your day with an early-morning hotel pick-up and drive to the trailhead at Cusipata. Begin your hike from an elevation of 14,189 feet (4,326 metre) above sea level with an experienced guide. Your hike takes you through small villages and past fields dotted with alpaca and llama herds. The beautiful, snow-topped Ausangate Mountain stays in sight as you climb, providing a gorgeous backdrop for your journey.

Break for lunch over views of neatly organised potato fields and unique mountain flora. As you finish eating and resume your trek, keep an eye out for native fauna like chinchillas and wild vicuñas roaming the area. After hiking through the pristine mountain trails, you're at last rewarded with the breath-taking wonder of Vinicunca Mountain, whose slopes are striped with distinct shades of purple, yellow, red, and green. A natural phenomenon caused by a great saturation of minerals, the literal rainbow in the mountain is a sight like no other.

Take your time exploring the area and capturing the one-of-a-kind vista in photos. Once you've got your fill of the amazing mountain, make the trek back to the trailhead and end your day with a ride back to your hotel.

Great experience!!..The ride getting there & back, not so much, very bumpy & a lot of curves!! Once there though, it's a tremendous experience, once in a lifetime!! You can ask from the Inca people horse service cause the hike is pretty long and the altitude affects your breathing.
