In this Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley day tour we will discover two of the most impressive attractions of Peru! Its growing popularity over the last year has brought flocks of travelers from all over the world to admire its beauty. But! That’s where we are different. Instead of arriving with the hundreds of other travelers, we make it a mission to be one of the first groups to reach the summit.

 

Are you not good at hiking? No problem! In addition to being able to rent horses, there are 2 options: Palccoyo Hike Tour the Rainbow Mountain Alternative, and the new route to Vinicunca Classic tour facilitating at least 50% of the trek! (Available with the same price

 

The experience is completely different when you are not surrounded by other travelers trying to get the same photo as you are and gives you a true appreciation for nature's beauty. Not to mention the 360 views from the summit where you are able to see the Apu Ausangate in the distance. Avoid the crowds and book below!

Route to Rainbow Mountain! Your VSA mountain guide will pick you up at your hotel between the hours of 2:15 am and 2:30 am, for a 3 hour trip via private van to the start of the trail. Upon arriving, you will be served a local Peruvian breakfast prepared by our local chef to get your energy up for our day ahead!

 

Our day will consist of a 2.5-hour hike and is a distance of 6 kilometers (3.7 miles). roughout your journey you will pass through a vibrant green valley with the snow-capped peak of Ausangate towering in the distance. You will see hundreds of roaming alpaca, and have the chance to truly see how Quechua people live. As you get closer to the Rainbow Mountain you will begin to see the first signs of the colored minerals that formed the painted hills. Your guide will explain what makes up the existence of the Rainbow Mountain and how it was formed, and finally, with one last push, you will hike up to a vantage point that gives you a 360-degree view of the beautiful landscape that makes up the sacred land.

 

We will have snacks on top and take a relaxing break to soak up the vistas, where you can enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. At this time you can also enjoy some coca tea that the locals prepare for visitors. After about an hour you will embark on your hike back to the trailhead (1.5 hours), where you will have a gourmet lunch prepared by our chef in a traditional mud-house and depart back to Cusco. Arriving in Cusco around 4:30 pm.
