Rainbow Mountain Full day trip
  • Rainbow Mountain Full day trip

    Enjoy the natural colors of the rarely visited  Rainbow Mountain Trek, hiking through some isolated communities, in which you may interact with the local people who are still keeping the culture alive!  You will see snowcapped peaks, herds of llamas, glaciers and turquoise lakes, all set within an incredibly colourful mountain range. The Rainbow Mountain trek offers a selection of wildlife including soaring condors, vicunas, bobcats and pumas.  The colourful sandstone mountains in the Vinicunca area is probably the coolest thing you will see in Peru.

    Stop At: Cerro Colorado Vinicunca, Apv- Tipon-n11, Cusco 08004 Peru

    Vinicunca or Winikunka, also called Montaña de Siete Colores, Montaña de Colores or Rainbow Mountain, is a mountain in Peru with an altitude of 5,200 meters above sea level.

    Tourist access requires a two-hour drive from Cusco, and a walk of about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) or three and half hour drive through Pitumarca and 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) steep walk of 45 minutes to the hill. As of 2019, no robust methods of transportation to Vinicunca have been developed to accommodate travelers, as it requires passage through a valley.

    It is located on the road to the Ausangate mountain, in the Andes of Peru, in the Cusco Region, between the districts of Cusipata, province of Quispicanchi, Pitumarca, and the province of Canchis.

    In the middle of the 2010s, mass tourism became attracted by the mountains' series of stripes of various colors. This due to its mineralogical composition present on the slopes and summits.

    Duration: 1 hour
