Rainbow Mountain
Full Description


Depart early at 2.30 am from a hotel located in Cusco and drive for 4 hours in our modern vans to the trailhead,  Upon arrival you enjoy a picnic breakfast prepared by your local chef.

After breakfast and a nice hot cup of Coca tea to help us with the 5000 plus, the hike begins with a 2-hour hike up to the top of Vinincunca mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain. Throughout the route, you will be able to see hundreds of llamas and alpacas, hike along the snowcapped peaks of the Ausangate Mountain range, the highest in Cusco city. As we get closer to the top, the views just get more and more impressive with every meter we climb. At the same time, your tour guide explains you about the formation of the painted hills. When we finally reach the top of Rainbow Mountain, there will be very few or no people, since you are going ahead of the crowd. There is nothing more amazing than arriving at this place first and be the early birds to Rainbow Mountain.

After enjoying the beautiful views of the Peruvian Andes, contemplating the spectacular 360°-degree view from the top, we will take an extra 30-minutes hike to Red Valley,  another spectacular and inspiring place with landscapes that will take your breath away and is rarely visited by travelers. From here, we will head back to the beginning of the trail, where our lunch will be waiting for us. We use local products to provide you the best of our gourmet Peruvian food prepared by our chef and later Come back to Cusco, arriving around 4:30 pm.

Very good! Driver was on time and made sure we connected with Miguel our guide. Train ride was enjoyable and then of course Macchu Pichu was breathtaking. Miguel was a wonderful, extremely knowledgeable, friendly guide. Only suggestion would be to warn guests when sitting in the discussion area to mention the sand flies and offer bug spray if guests did not bring.

Completed a 4 Day/3 Night Inca Trail and wow what an amazing experience it was. I feel such joy every time I reflect on my experience. Trexperience organised this trip perfectly and every single detail was thought about. From the absolutely amazing and varied meals freshly prepared by our Chef, to the whole flow of the experience. The porters worked so hard to make sure the experience was as smooth as butter for us trekkers. They even clapped for us when we would reach camp even though they had worked harder. Special shout out to our awesome guide Willian Molina. Willian always made sure everyone was safe, having an enjoyable time, helped us with hiking tips and ensuring I was okay when the hike became more difficult for me. He is extremely knowledgable with all aspects of the Inca Trail from the hiking itself to the nature around us to the Inca sites. I have already recommended Trexperience to multiple people since finishing the trek and will continue to do so. Thank you thank you thank you for such an incredible, once in a lifetime experience!

Our guide, Efrain, was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the Sacred. Valley and we learned a lot from him on our tour. The transport was comfortable with a really good and careful driver, Danilo. Lunch was surprisingly good-plenty of options for vegetarians. The only part we didn’t like was the constant pressure to buy handicrafts.

We enjoyed the 4d3n trip. The food is very well prepared and nutritious. It is better than what I ate at the restaurant. Guide is very professional and patient with slower hikers. Highly recommended.
