RAINBOW MOUNTAIN

BE AMAZED BY THE PICTORESQUE COLOURS OF RAINBOW MOUNTAIN

THE BEST ONE DAY HIKING EXPERIENCE IN CUSCO

If you love outdoor activities as much as we do, then you’ll surely be glad to know there is a magical place waiting for you right at the heart of the Vilcanota mountain range. The Vinicunca mountain, also known as the Vinicunda Rainbow Mountain of Peru is the most sought after day trek near the Imperial City of Cusco.

This colorful mount originated millions of years ago and even though it has been there all along, it wasn’t until 2014 that it was discovered by locals and put on the tourist market in the beginning of 2015.

The Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain was hidden in plain sight since it was another snow-capped peak of the Andean region. However, due to climate change the thick layers of ice and snow that once covered it, melted away unveiling its true colors to the world.

The imposing colored mountain sits on an elevation of 5,200 meters above sea level and it’s surrounded by the mighty Apu of the Andes, the Ausangate Mountain, as well as the Red Valley and an impressive natural scenery.

It is worth mentioning that even though the trail may seem partially flat and easy, the altitude is a factor that can’t be ignored. Therefore, if you’re planning to do this trek, make sure to be properly acclimatized before venturing out to this otherworldly location.
