Rainbow Mountain 2 Days

VINICUNCA, also known as the RAINBOW MOUNTAIN or MOUNTAIN OF 7 COLOURS, is located to the south of Cusco, in the Canchis province.

 It offers its visitors a marvellous panorama of majestic mountains and glaciers such as Ausangate, crystalline rivers, peaceful pastoral scenes, herds of sheep, camelid breeders, and Andean people dressed in their native colourful clothes. This new route, apart from the established routes, is a real adventure through a wild and untouched landscape where the only encounter you will have is with VINICUNCA “THE MOUNTAIN OF 7 COLOURS”, PUCAPUNTA “the red mountain” and small Quechua-speaking communities, descendents of the Quechuas , who exploit the Altiplano.

This is a high mountain route and reaches altitudes of up to 5200 metres above sea level.
