If you come to Peru you cannot miss this full day hiking tour in the Rainbow Mountain!
The Rainbow Mountain, also known as the Ausangate, is the 5th highest peak of Peru. It’s located on the Pitumarca district in the region of Cuzco. The Rainbow Mountain was included by National Geographic in the list of the 100 places you should go before die.
On the way to the Rainbow Mountain you will delight your eyes with really beautiful landscapes. In addition, you will learn a lot about native flora and fauna of the place as well as local villagers.
As for the itinerary, I will pick you up early from your hotel in Cuzco. Then, we will drive through the South Valley to Quesiuno, where the trek starts. Once we are in the Inkintuyoc Bridge, we’ll enjoy a delicious continental breakfast to gain strength.
We then start the hike along a nice stream. On the way you will have amazing views of the surrounding peaks. We will walk through local villages to know the lifestyle of their people. We will then stop for a lunch before continuing with the last part of the trail.
Finally, after about 5 walking hours, we will reach our destination: the incredible 5020-meter Rainbow Mountain. Once at the summit, you will have spare time to explore the area and take pictures.
Now, it’s time to return. We will hike downhill by the same route we ascended. This hike will take other 4 or 5 hours. Once in the base, our private transfer will be waiting for us. Back to your hotel in Cuzco at around 9 PM. End of this fantastic trekking day!
