VINICUNCA RAINBOW MOUNTAIN FULL DAY TOUR

1 Day

Overview

The “Rainbow Mountain” in Peru, also known as Vinicunca, is an spectacular place near the snowy Ausangate glacier which is considered a sacred mountain by local people, is one of the most important deities of ancient Cusco.

Since pre-Inca times the mountain has been a place of worship and offerings and this tradition continues untill nowadays.

Most trips that let you see the “Rainbow Mountain” requires a trek of at least five or six days. That has changed with this new itinerary. We have designed for this walk, so now that it can be done as a day trip.

On this walk you will see picturesque villages, beautiful “adobe” houses, herds of llamas and alpacas, and you will have a magnificent view of the glacier Ausangate (6,385 m / 20,945 feet).
