1 day

Hike from Pitumarca to the rainbow mountain Vinicunca. 


• Pick up from the hotel in Cusco at 5:00 h.

• About a three-hour drive south.

• Upon arrival in the small town of Pitumarca, an energetic Andean breakfast, specially prepared to start the hikes. There are toilets.

• Approximately 1½ hour uphill hike to mount Vinicunca (rainbow mountain or seven colored mountain) 4 km away. Possibility to rent horses or mules directly from the local residents.

• During the trek, the main peak of Ausangate, which is almost completely covered with snow, can be well observed. Alpacas and sheep can also be seen.

• At the end of the trail, the effort is rewarded with a great view of the colorful Vinicunca mountain range. Time to enjoy this stunning panorama and capture it in photos.

• Descent without haste.
