Rainbow mountain full-day trip (Vinicunca)


Price per person: $95 or £80 (For a minimum of 2 people)

Itinerary:

We will pick you up bright and early at approximately 3am from your hotel. We’ll depart heading south from Cusco, passing through various small towns, until we get to Queshoyoni (4,326m / 14,189 ft.). At this point you will have the opportunity to rent a horse to help you during the walk if you need to. This is when the extraordinary ascending trek begins: walking approximately 7km (approximately 4 hours) towards Vinicunca, also called the Rainbow Mountain, located at over 5000 metres above sea level. During the tour we will be surrounded by the amazing landscapes of the Apu Ausangate.

Upon arrival we will be able to enjoy Rainbow Mountain in all its splendor, have some lunch and a well-deserved rest. Afterwards, we will head back down, walking for approximately 3 hours until we arrive at Pampachiri, where our transport will be waiting to take us back to Cusco (3 hours), arriving to the city at around 7pm.
