Rainbow mountain tour

Rainbow mountain tour, is a trip that depart from cusco city, it’s one of our favorite hikes. Located at the ausangate mountains range, over 5000 meters above sea level, at the east from the city, this peak is also known as Vinicunca, considered sacred by the locals; reason by which the locals go in a pilgrimage and do shamanic offerings close by (they bury offerings consisting in natural products).

This is an amazing summit, that has several colors, offers a wonderful 360 degrees view, many colored summits, mostly reddish, and it is a land of llamas and alpacas as well, where we will see many of them along the way.

There are several itineraries to Vinicunca; from day trips, and several day treks that starts at different places; one of the new, and fantastic itinerary, is the one that starts at Tinqui, it includes 2 nights camping.

Before hiking to the Vinicunca, we’ll see at the trail heat, something interesting, the locals wearing their traditional clothes (colorful handmade textiles), wait in line-up, to pull horses in case you want to hire. we will walk towards our destination, during this hike we will cover about 5 kilometers.

Along the hike we will see nice mountains covered by, highland grass named Icchu, see llamas, alpacas and locals with colorful dress, the trail is gentle uphill and some small steep part, as we gain altitude we can start seeing reddish color summits, after about 1.5 hours we finally summit the Vinicunca view point “5,000m / 16, 404 ft” approximately.

The view is magnificent, several summits are white because of snow, rainbow shape mount, is the principal view, the others are red mostly, there is time to explore the area, and climb up to a higher point, for unique pictures, then after enjoying it, we will return; now the trail is all gentle downhill, we will arrive to a village, and have lunch made by our cook, after lunch we will take our exclusive transport and return to the city, arriving back at around 18:00 hrs.
