    The Rainbow Mountain Peru Tour Itinerary

    Rainbow Mountain Full Day Tour

    *We strongly recommend that this tour be booked towards the end of your travels to Peru and Machu Picchu due to the altitude you will experience on this hike*

    You will be picked up from hotel between 4:20 am and 5 am from your hotel. Your tourist transport will take you to the starting point of the hike at the foot of Apu Ausangate. Here we will have our breakfast, appreciating the beautiful scenery around, after a little talk from the guide we begin our hike from 4200 meters above sea level to Rainbow Mountain “Vinicunca” (5100 m.a.s.l) which is about 1 – 1/2 to 2 hours walk through villages where you can observe the landscape of the high Andes and grazing alpacas and llamas.

    Arriving at The Rainbow Mountain Peru you will see the stunning colors that are natural formations of minerals that give color to the mountain. From this point you will have a great view of Ausangate Mountain, a Sacred Mountain of the Incas.
    Due to the high altitude we recommend anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes at the viewpoint. As this is one of the highest altitudes you will reach, even higher then our Inca Trail or Salkantay Trek. We recommend that travelers DO NOT book the Rainbow Mountain tour as one of their first tours while in Cusco. Try to add the tour to the end of your itinerary once your body is acclimated enough or after a Machu Picchu Trek.
    To conclude the tour we hike back to our starting point (another hour to 1 – 1/2) where our return transportation will take us back to Cusco arriving at approximately 6:30 PM.
    *We recommend a good pair of hiking boots for this hike as well as Sunblock and a Rain Poncho due to the unpredictable weather at high altitude.
