How to get the Rainbow Mountain?

The perfect place to get there is, by departing from Cusco.

Most of the group operators are leaving at 03:00 hrs., then leave towards east, after 3.5 hours of drive, then reach the rainbow mountain, right in the middle when there is everyone “too crowdie”.

Our company, thinking of you, has created an special rainbow mountain tour itinerary, which brings you there, and makes it possible to be up-front of the crowds, or after they have gone, so you will enjoy this magnificent view of Vinicunca and the red valley.

For making it possible, we depart Cusco at 03:00 hrs, then drive to Phulawasi pata (road end), then walk the average 1.7 hours distance, for people who is not use to walk on highland, we can hike horses from locals, and get to a closer point and walk only for 25 minutes. With this schedule you also can return cusco by 13:00 hrs, on time to catch your flight back to lima or home.

After visiting this magnificent mountain, you descend to a lower point, find a restaurant, and stop for lunch, after that drive back to cusco city, where our tour ends.

If you want to go in the late departure, reach the rainbow mountain behind the crowds, then take our 08:00 hrs, and return to cusco by 07:00 hrs.
