Full description
Your full-day tour begins in Cusco, where you will be picked up between 4:30AM and 5:00AM. You will then drive in a comfortable van for 3 hours to the town of Cusipata, where you will have breakfast in a local family house.

Following breakfast, you will head to the starting point of your hike. There are approximately 3 kilometers of flat land uphill, leading to the majestic "Mountain of Colors". The hike will take about 1.5 hours, depending on your level of fitness. Throughout your hike, we will enjoy panoramic views of the valleys, wild llamas, alpacas and vicuñas. If you are lucky, you will also witness the flight of the condor.

Once here, if weather is good, you will be able to receive your first views of Rainbow Mountain. At the top, you will take a well-deserved break, which will also be your chance to catch your breath and enjoy the breathtaking views. After taking beautiful photos, you will begin your descent back, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch upon your return. You will then take private transportation back to Cusco, where you will arrive at approximately 5:00PM.
