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.
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.
