Rainbow Mountain Cusco - Vinicunca Trek

Explore Rainbow Mountain Cusco - Vinicunca Trek

Vinicunca Cusco also called The Mountain of 7 Colors or Rainbow Mountain Cusco. It is a new tourist attraction near Cusco, Peru, located in the province of Quispicanchis.

Forgotten by everyone until a few years ago, it has now become very popular. And the best part is that you can visit it in one day. According to locals, this mountain and the surrounding ones were covered with snow a few decades ago, and because of global warming, the snow has disappeared leaving them exposed and showing us an incredible view, and not just the view of the mountains, but also the Apu Ausangate Mountain, Cusco’s highest snowy peak.

This tour is designed for travelers with little time and good physical resistance. Its difficulty ranges from moderate to challenging. Despite the fact that the Rainbow Mountain Peru is usually full of tourists, we start our adventure very early to be the first to arrive. In addition, we’ll take you to the opening of the Red Valley so that you can appreciate the endless red hills that rise on the other side of Vinicunca Mountain; a clear example of the fine art of Mother Nature!.

Rainbow Mountain Cusco is one of the most beautiful natural wonders I have ever seen. Coming to Peru you often hear about treks through the mountains in Huaraz, the Sacred Valley, Colca Canyon, and of course the famous Machu Picchu. However, without a doubt, the well-kept secret of Rainbow Mountain Trek needs to be up there in your hit list. Rainbow Mountain Trek - this Mountain’s amazing colorations are due to the mineral content of the soil and to the effect of erosion on the sedimentary rocks of the hillsides. This is why it is called the magical 7 Color Mountain. Nowadays every traveler wants to experience this alternative adventure by climbing up the most colorful mountain in the world. Today it has become one of the newest and most fantastic tourist attractions in Peru and in all of South America.
