Rainbow Mountain, or Viñicunca, is a scared mountain located in the Andes region of Cusco. It’s growing popularity over the last year has brought flocks of travelers from all over the world to admire it’s beauty. But! That’s where we are different. Instead of arriving with the hundreds of other travelers, we make it a mission to be the first group to reach the summit.

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 natures 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!

I did the Rainbow Mountain Trek in August and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Overall, I would definitely recommend this trek!
