Experience Peru’s ‘true colors’ during this adventurous full-day trek to ‘Ausangate,’ also known as the Rainbow Mountain. Hike through postcard-worthy landscapes, and get a taste for daily life among area locals as you head to this colorful alpine destination. You’ll cap off the adventure from a vantage point offering 360 views of the colored minerals that give the site its unexpected vista. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are also included.
Very early in the morning (4:30 am) we will pick you up at your hotel, we will drive south to Cusipata Village, and then we will take a route that will take us at the base of the mountain to a small community called Chilihani, our trailhead.
On our way we will see a multitude of llamas and alpacas, shepherds dressed in beautiful and colorful costumes as part of their tradition, pass by beautiful creeks leading to the highest parts, be surrounded by snowy peaks, with the impressive Ausangate mountain towering in the distance. Almost at the top we will observe the change of the landscape from green to red, further we will discover a beautiful mountain range with different colors extended from mountain to mountain, our destination, Rainbow Mountain.
Our guide will explain you about the existence of the Rainbow Mountain; finally with one last push we will go up a little more and stop in a view point that gives you a full view of this incredible scenery.
After that we will have lunch, return to our transportation and return to Cusco City.
