Full description
Experience Rainbow Mountain in all its glory on this private day trip to Vinincunca from Cusco. Immerse yourself in the local culture as you hike up to the spectacular Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley. This tour also includes breakfast and lunch. Start with a pickup from your hotel early in the morning and a transfer to Quesoyuni. Visit Japura on the way, a small Andean community, where you'll have breakfast. Hike towards Kairawiri, starting point of the trek to the impressive 7-Colour Mountain. Witness the natural spectacle that you have in front as well as the imposing mountains that also fill the landscape with color. The trek is surrounded by beautiful sceneries of the Andes and guarded by the majestic Ausangate Mountain, one of the most important mountains of Cusco, considered a sacred entity since the times of the Incas. Once you reach the viewpoint of the 7 color Mountain, appreciate the surroundings from up high. Afterward, head down to Kairawiri to savor a box lunch. Return to Cusco and transfer to your hotel.
