About this trip

A few kilometers away from Rainbow Mountain sits one of the highest mountains in Peru, Ausangate. So imposing even from a distance, its importance to the locals remains with their ancestors, the Incas.

This adventure begins on the first day at the foot of Ausangate mountain, with plenty of alpaca herds and llamas along the way; we spend our nights in a comfortable glamping tent, with meals and activities designed to give you the most comfortable experience camping in high altitude.

On the third day, we will approach Rainbow Mountain for the golden hour to get the best lighting and also avoid the crowds.
