Full description
Hike up to one of the most beautiful wonders of nature, the Seven Color Mountain, or Vinicunca, about 100-kilometers southeast of Cusco. Start your hike at Cusipata and get ready to experience the Rainbow Mountain at an altitude of 5,200 meters above sea level. Experience the trek surrounded by beautiful sceneries of the Andes and the majestic Ausangate Mountain, one of the most important mountains of Cusco and considered a sacred entity since the times of the Incas.
