Tour Program


Day 1: Rainbow Mountain One Day Tour

The Mountain is located at 5200 meters above sea level (17,000 feet)

Early in the morning we will be picking you up from your hotel in order to reach the village of Cusipata (travel time from Cusco: 3 hours). Then, we will provide you a small briefing regarding our tour day and then we’ll start our hike of 4 Km to reach the Rainbow Mountain.
Fascinating landscapes will surprise us as well as the numerous Lamas and Alpacas that locals raise in the highlands. After 2 hours of hiking we will reach the famous Rainbow Mountain (5200 meters above sea level), a geological formation that presents different colors (similar to the Rainbow) because of its mineral composition.
We recommend staying in the Rainbow Mountain about 30 minutes in order to take pictures and admire the landscape. After our experience in Vinicunca, we will have lunch and return to Cusco in the evening.
This tour requires a good physical condition, so we highly recommend being fully acclimatized and bring warm clothes, hiking shoes, gloves, a raincoat, sun block & glasses.
