Trip Overview

Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca or the Montaña de Siete Colores, has only recently become a major attraction in Peru. It lay hidden until 2015, when the snow that covered it melted away, revealing the amazing layered hues of gold, lavender, red and turquoise that give the mountain its name. The varied mineralogical compositions on the slopes and summits of the mountain give it a stripped, rainbow-like appearance, creating a spectacular natural attraction that is now famous throughout the world. 

Our full-day Rainbow Mountain hike will take you to the top of the mountain, where you’ll have sweeping panoramic views of the otherworldly landscape and across to the imposing Ausangate Massif. We’ll have to trek to get there, but it’s worth the effort – and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Itinerary

We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at around 05h00 as we need time to drive out to the trailhead and then complete out trek. The drive itself takes about three hours, passing through wonderful Andean scenery along the South Valley. We’ll stop for breakfast along the way, and then continue on to the trailhead at the village of Quesiuno, at about 4,326 m (14,189 ft) above sea level.  

From here, we’ll set off on our Rainbow Mountain tour from Cusc...
