Tour Details

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.

Private rainbow mountain tour

This private tour, is one of the best programs we have in the region. with optional early departure we guarantee, that we can get the summit before the crowds, or the later departure to be the last ones, at the top of Vinicunca and enjoy it, without too many people.

Should I book pre/post tour accommodation?

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.
