      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.

      The trop was amazing - we really enjoyed it a lot. Edy and Rosmel were amazing in explaining everything, aswering all our questions and making the tour really nice. Only the Machu Picchu day was not organised well, as we had to wake up so early and stay at the gate. Other solutions should be looked for this. All in all perfect trip - thanks a lot!

      Amazing trip - I can see why Trexperience is the highest rated. Great high quality tents and sleeping equipment. The chef (I think it was Valentin?) and his team managed to give us different meals throughout the day every day for four days - we joked there was a hidden supermarket on the trail somewhere because we couldn’t believe it. 2-3 course meals, three times a day for four days - genuinely don’t know how they kept pulling out these meals, it was so impressive. They even baked a cake for a couple celebrating their honeymoon, amazing. The two guides JJ and Rozmin were great, a special mention to Rozmin he was my best bud for the trip and he was happy to speed things up as a few of us were seasoned hikers and he was such a positive guy, he really made the trip. Without hesitation, if you’re doing the Classic Inca Trail, Trexperience is the one hands down, all the reviews speak for themselves. We saw the other companies trekking whilst we were out and we 100% made the right decision.
