Located in the Peruvian Andes in Cusco just 3 hours away from the historical center, Rainbow Mountain is becoming the main attraction to see after or before Machu Picchu. As you could guess, the mountain is famed for its natural, multi-colored beauty at a staggering 5,200m above sea level.

Day 1:
Rainbow Mountain Vinicunca Full Day Tour

We will pick you up at your hotel very early in the morning between 4:15 and 4:50 am, and you will start going on your Rainbow Mountain Trek Peru. In the early hours of the morning the temperature in Cusco is quite low. But don’t worry because the van is heated and we can supply each passenger with extra blankets.

When you arrive at Paucarpata village you will eat a good buffet breakfast. Then you will continue traveling through picturesque Andean villages as you approach the starting point of the trail for the Rainbow Mountain 1 Day Trek.

Before you start walking your guide will give you some very important information and tips about the hike. Then you’ll start hiking up Rainbow Mountain which reaches an elevation of 5200 masl. The up-hill distance that you will walk is about 3 km, and it is more difficult to walk up-hill on the way in than down-hill on the return journey. Along the trail you will see some amazing high-country landscapes, the Red Valley, and herds of thousands of alpacas and llamas that are being tended by the local mountain folk.

Upon reaching the scenic overlook you will notice that, since you are among the first visitors of the day, you will have the perfect opportunity to take memorable photos before any other tourists arrive. What an incredible sight! Only God could have dreamed up these colors. It’s truly like a fantastic rainbow! When you arrive here, you too will understand why everyday a lot of people accept the challenge of making this pilgrimage.

Depending on the weather, you can stay about 30 or 40 minutes at the lookout. Next, you will return along the same trail. Finally, you will eat a wonderful buffet lunch and arrive in Cusco around 17:30 pm.

Pick up of guests
Machu Picchu Vip can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historical Center of Cusco. Your guide will coordinate the pickup time in the briefing session, but please keep in mind that the time may vary between 20 and 35 minutes due to traffic.
Group Tours
Group tours are made up of different types of people, then physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, the guide will be the one who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if such modifications are possible.
Strikes in cusco
Are usually common in Peru, and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your trip as originally planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be canceled. In case of changes or cancellations, everything will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority, and our decisions will be made to protect it.
Lost objects
Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our transport, tents, or restaurants. You’re the only one responsible for your objects during the tour.
I can change or cancel my tour
Of course you can modify the date of your tour up to 24 hours before and you can cancel up to 15 days before, but there will be charges for administrative expenses
Should I tip the guides?
How much is appropriate? A tip is voluntary, but the amount is at your discretion. Whatever you feel is appropriate based on the service you have received is fine; please remember to always be courteous and respectful with our guides.
