Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Tour - 1 Day

We will be the first ones at Rainbow Mountain and beat the crowds!

Vinicunca is a mountain pass located about a 3 hours drive southeast of Cusco city, in the opposite direction of Machu Picchu, Inca Trail, and the famous Humantay Lake. Known more commonly by locals asLa Montaña de Siete Colores(mountain of seven colors) and by travellers as the Rainbow Mountain Peru or Cerro Vinincunca, the geographical wonder is famous for its rainbow tonality- a surreal natural phenomenon of mineral deposits streaked across sandstone rock.

In an area claimed to have one of the most impressive mountain sceneries in the Andes, Vinicunca is close to the snow-capped Ausangate, the highest and most sacred mountain in the Cusco region.

Itinerary

Cusco – Cusipata – Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain – Cusco

Early, around 03:00 am – 3:30 am, we will pick you up from the hotel in Cusco to make the trip to Qollasuyo, the southern part of the ancient land of the Quechua people (Cusco). This area played a huge role in the history of the Tawantinsuyo (Ancient Incas).

Firstly, we will pass through the CUSIPATA District where we will stop for 30 minutes to have breakfast. From there, we continue for an hour and a half until passing PITUMARCA where we will be able to admire The Colonial Bridge (Puente colonial). We will then pass through some small villages until we get to the HANCHIPATA – LAMA CHIMPANA- community, a transit station where we will have a brief meeting before starting the walk-up.

We will begin our walk at the foot of the Ausangate mountain range. This will be followed by an ascent of approximately 1 hour to the highest point of the Rainbow Mountain. During this journey, we will have the opportunity to see the different types of South American camelids (relatives of the camel). Upon reaching the red hill, we will have time to soak in and take pictures of the beautiful scenery.

Finally, we will continue our journey with a 1-hour descent into the flat terrain and back to where the walk began, HANCHIPATA. Here, the driver will be waiting for us to return passing through PITUMARCA to the District of CUSIPATA where we can enjoy 1 hour of lunch. Following lunch, we will return to Cusco, arriving at approx. 3:00 p.m.

One of the most amazing places that I have visited in my life. But should be very prepared physically to trek until the top where is 5200mt above sea level.

One of my favourite tour companies I have ever booked with.. was a great service from start to finish… Juve’s knowledge and passion was evident throughout. I would highly recommend this company as the tour are also very small (not a massive group) so you also get a better experience

Fantastic experience but tough to those who are not good at altitude like me. I used a horse to go up to half way for 60 solos, which was helpful. Early start is worth it as not many people around but FREEZING!
