Trip at a glance

Surprise yourself with a destination like no other: Rainbow Mountain. Vinicunca Mountain offers you a dream-like landscape with the colors of the rainbow all stacked on top of one another for you to see. Like a multicolor mantle or a reflection of a rainbow on Earth, Vinicunca can be admired all year-round.

This destination is at approximately 5,000 m.a.s.l. (16,400 f.a.s.l) and can be reached after a four-hour walk from the base camp. The radiant sun will accompany you all along the route and so will families of camelids including llamas and alpacas.

The imposing mountain landscape is sure to be the protagonist of your photographs.

Rainbow Mountain Trek – 1 Day Tour

The adventure begins very early with our team picking you up from your hotel   at 3:30 a.m.  and heading to the small community of Pitumarca (located south of Cusco). In Pitumarca, we will make a stop to grab some last-minute items including water, drinks, snacks, sun block etc.

Our Andean breakfast will be at approximately 6:30 a.m. SALKANTAY TREKKING will have all food prepared and ready for you to enjoy your first meal prior to the day’s trek. With the sun up high, we will begin trekking in the quiet and remote landscapes of the Cusquenian puna. You will trek at your pace enjoying with detail flora of the Andes and breathing in the pure Andean air.

The trail will go through untouched nature with just a few Andean communities scattered in the mountains. Along the narrow trail, we will go by mountains, cross small streams and be under the constant tutelage of the AUSANGATE APU.

At approximately 11:00 a.m., we will reach Vinicunca’s summit. The dazzling view of Rainbow Mountain will reward all 4 hours of effort to reach its summit, leave you without words and better yet, leave you with no regret for having done our Rainbow Mountain Trek.  Once at the top, you will have enough time to take photographs.

For your return, we will use the same route. You will walk back to the community of Pitumarca where a car will be waiting to bring you back from to Cusco. Arrival time in Cusco will be approximately at 7 p.m.
