On this trek, you will experience amazing views of Inca terraces, valleys filled with alpacas and vicunas, rocky mountains with snowy glacier peaks and the amazing news of the Rainbow Mountain itself!
The views of the Ausangate Mountain will follow us through the trail as we hike through different villages and interact with the local people, who are still keeping the culture alive.
It will take us around 3 to 3.5 hours, to finally reach our destination to the Rainbow Mountain (5,020mts /16,466ft).
At the summit you will have some time to rest, and enjoy the scenery! take photos and soak up the environment.
We will spend approximately 30 minutes at the top.
Once we regroup, we will hike back down the trail we came on. The hike takes 2.5 hours back to the trailhead.
Our van will be waiting for us when we return. On the 3-hour drive back to Cusco you will be able to rest a bit from this great hike and share the experience with your friends and family!
