It is the mountain of the Seven Colors, also known as Vinicunca or Arcoíris. The mountain is located in the Cordillera del Vilcanota at 5,200 meters above sea level, in the district of Pitumarca. Its slopes and summits are dyed by strips of intense shades of fuchsia, turquoise, lavender and gold.
We will pick you up from your hotel at 4am, we board our private transportation and begin with our amazing Rainbow Mountain Trek Adventure. We set out on our drive for 2 hours through the South Valley, until CUSIPATA here we stop for having breakfast, and then we drive for 1 more hour ending up at the trailhead at Llacto (4,638m / 15,216 ft). Along the way, there are amazing views of farming Inca terraces, valleys and Rocky Mountains.
Once we reach the train-head, we start on our hike following a lovely stream. The herds of alpacas and llamas all around you will immediately surprise you. Continually you will have views of the Ausangate Mountain as we hike through different villages and interact with the local people, who are still keeping traditional Quechua culture alive.
After a total hike of 1.5 hours, we finally reach our destination…. VINICUNCA or the Rainbow Mountain (5,080m /16,466ft). After being awed by their beauty, you will have time to explore the area. You can take pictures or just soak up the environment. We will spend approximately 30 minutes at the top.
At this point, we hike back down the way we came. The hike takes 1 hour, then we go back to CUSIPATA for having lunch, and then we will embark on the 2-hour drive back to Cusco and drop you off at your Cusco hotel, arriving around 4:00pm approx.
