Located in the Peruvian Andes, in Cuzco, just 3 hours from the historic center, the Colored Mountain OF Vinicunca is becoming the main attraction to see after or before Machu Picchu. This rainbow appearance is created by mineral sediments throughout the area that give the mountain its turquoise, lavender, gold and other colors.

Tour Details


Machu Picchu Tour Rainbow Mountain 4 days

Highlights

Once the Rainbow Mountain’s existence became known outside the local communities, it began to attract locals and travelers alike, first with a couple dozen people and now with hundreds of visitors a day. The first thing that caught everyone’s attention was, you guessed it again, the colors that you don’t see anywhere else. But it was not the only thing.

It is one of those places where the whole journey is as surprising as the destination. Llamas, horses and alpacas are scattered throughout the Rainbow Mountain range, with local communities still living almost as before but now also helping visitors to discover the Colorful Mountain of Vinicunca. The scenery along the hike is just like the pictures and even the pictures don’t do it justice at times. Add to this the geological and local history, and it is no wonder that it is gaining in popularity.
