Rainbow mountain which is locally known as Vinicunca is located off the beaten track in Ausangate. The mountain is amazingly colored like a rainbow. We will hike at very high altitudes and you will need to be acclimatized for this walk which is demanding. We will experience adventure, nature and culture rolled up in one.
Trekperu operates this trek with a minimum of 2 persons.
If you do not have time we can do this in one long day.
We will take off from your hotel early in the morning and drive for about 4 hours to the trail head of Quesiuno (4326m/14193) enjoying the beautiful scenery en route. We will start our hike to Llamachimpana along a stream of water, views of the mighty Ausangate mountain, some small communities, herds of alpacas, llamas, vicuñas and more. After about 3 hours hiking we will arrive in our campsite near the village of Llamachimpana. We will relax and have time to interact with the locals.
Lunch and dinner included
We will enjoy an early breakfast in nature to energize ourselves before the arduous scenic hike to Rainbow Mountain. Our hike will take us uphill for about 3 hours to reach Vinicunca, the colored mountains. En route take in spectacular vistas of the glacial peaks, pristine lagoons, shepards, llamas and alpacas and the wild vicuñas. Once we reach to the top be in awe with the magnificent magical views of the red colored mountains. After a great time we will backtrack down the same route and have lunch. Thereafter, we will drive back to Cusco.
