Full description of Rainbow Mountain Tour.

After being collected from the lobby of your hotel in Cusco at 4.30 am, drive for 4 hours to Cusipata Trailhead. Along the way, you’ll stop for breakfast in a local family house at Cusipata town (3386 m / 11108 ft), also. You’ll see several shepherding villages, potato farming lands, and amazing views of the Mountains as you climb.

Once we arrive at Cusipata Trailhead (4629 m / 15187 ft), begin the 2 hours hike up to Rainbow Mountain ( 5017 m / 19459 ft). Enjoy the beautiful natural scenery, herds of llamas and alpacas, and keep up local women’s pace that works here renting horses you can hire. Upon arrival at the top of Rainbow Mountain, you´ll be rewarded with a 360° of amazing views of the colored mountains and the Ausangate Mountain (6398m/20991ft), the highest peak in Cusco.

After spending time at Rainbow Mountain, if you still have energy and the altitude is not taking your breath away, you can take a 20-minute hike to the amazing and rarely visited Red Valley (4934 m /  16187 ft). Marvel at the moon-like landscape, take ´plenty of photographs, then start descending back to the trailhead to take our transportation for lunch at Cusipata town. Arrival at Cusco is around 5:pm, dropping you off near the Plaza de Armas at Regocijo square.

Rainbow Mountain Peru Tour will take you to a genuinely unique adventure through a preserved wild natural terrain with amazing views of the Ausangate Glacier Peak, isolated local villages, and colorful mountains. This tour is by far one of the most spectacular day hikes at a great value.
