Cusco - Rainbow Mountain –Vinicunca - Cusco
We’ll pick up you at your hotel at 4:00 am to drive in direction of south of Cusco until rich Vinicunca community, where we have our breakfast. After that, we begin our ascend in a medium-hard walk for approximately 2 - 3 hours until the site of the famous Ausangate Rainbow Mountain; at this point, our breathing will become increasingly labored as we gain altitude. Once we arrive at the top of the pass, there may be some frigid gusts of wind, so please ensure that you are wrapped up warmly clothes.
You will be rewarded for your trekking efforts when you finally see the incredible mountain, with its vibrant multi-hued layers of rock sediment: turquoise, orange, brown, and red. At the same time, you will have majestic views of the Ausangate snow cape. This trek to Vinicunca is without a doubt the most famous new attraction in Peru.
After to reach and have a great moment photographing this spellbound mount, we start to downhill to the last stop for a lunch, to finally set up to Cusco.
