This is the latest must do activity in Peru : 

The Rainbow Mountain Tour from Cusco !

One of the most popular day trips in Peru , this adventurous hike up the multi colored mountain Vinicunca in the Andean countryside.

The day treks leave early in the morning (around 4 or 5am) and involve some strenuous walking at altitude so can be good for conditioning for your Inca Tail or other Machu Picchu treks. 

Most day tours return to Cusco at around 19.00 in the evening.

How High is the Rainbow Mountain?

Vinicunca, the official name for the mountain is 5200 meters (17060 feet) in altitude so most people will find it a a bit hard work climbing to the top - nice and slow is the best way.

Where is Rainbow Mountain Exactly?

The mountain is part of the Willkanuta Mountain Range and is about a 3 to 4  hour drive away from Cusco. 

Another famous mountain called Ausangate is also nearby and the two can be combined in a 2 day trek.

Why Does the Mountain Have So Many Colors?

The colors in the mountain come from layers of mineral deposits that formed over thousands of years and have been exposed by erosion

The best tours are often the hardest work and you will find the early morning pickup worth it but for those that love hiking the 2 day trekking option to Rainbow Mountain & Ausangate is a fantastic choice if you have time.

All our tours have English speaking guides and regular departures - take your pick from these recommended activities
