Journey through an undiscovered land of wild desert landscapes, snow capped peaks, herds of alpaca, and arrive at the ultimate destination – The “Rainbow Mountain” at 5000 meters above sea level, hidden deep in the Andes.
These multi-coloured beauty sticks out a mile in the Peruvian Andes. The journey will take you through a vibrant green valley with an impressive view of the Ausangate mountain towering at a distance. On this tour you will get a first hand experience on witnessing how the local community spend their daily life and will have an opportunity to interact with them. As you would start getting closer to the iconic Rainbow Mountain, you would start witnessing the first signs of the coloured mineral deposits such as iron, copper, dolomite, sulphur, lime, lead and hematite that formed the mountain. Our guide will talk to you on the formation and existence of the Rainbow Mountain, and finally with one last push, you will hike up to the vantage point that would give you a jaw dropping 360 degree view of the stunning landscape that makes this a sacred land in Cusco.
