Today starts with Chillca pass (5051), a very colorful mountain but only a precursor of what is to come. You enter into the Red Mountain valley, a wildly desert landscape with vibrant colors all around, and llamas roaming the ground below- as you approach the top of the pass you will see the beautiful Rainbow Mountain in the distance, but your not quite there! From here you descend to circle lake and continue walking a Peruvian flat until we are presented with one final climb to the Rainbow Mountain. Soak in the sights and enjoy what you’ve worked so hard for. We will enjoy lunch after, and walk to the remote Qencha village for the evening.
