Rainbow Mountain Hike

The Rainbow Mountain Hike is also known to locals as Vinicunca. This stunning and unique natural wonder is located near the spectacular Ausangate Mountain. This Mountain is the deity of Cusco and has been considered a holy place of worship by indigenous Peruvians for a millennium. The tradition of prayer and making offerings continues to this day.

Treks to see the Rainbow Mountain used to require at least 6 days, but this itinerary lets you see this attraction in a day hike. You’ll see quaint villages, herds of llamas plus magnificent views of the Ausangate glacier (6385m/21,000ft.), the highest mountain in the Cusco region. With its unsurpassed beauty and power, the Rainbow Mountain Hike is an excellent option for trekkers who love a true outdoor adventure.
