A day full of adventure visiting Vinicunca, Rainbow Mountain on the outskirts of Cusco, Peru. The mountain’s colors were formed by sedimentary mineral layers in the mountain that have been exposed to erosion. On this tour, you will see the local people with their horses and the snow-peaked Ausangate Mountain looming down on Vinicunca.

The first stretch is not difficult but if you feel the altitude then you are welcome to hire a horse. Along the way, we will see the local farmers and many llamas and alpacas.
