Full description
Head to Rainbow Mountain, one of the most popular one-day hikes in the Cusco region. Get away from the city, traffic, and pollution to enjoy the amazing natural and cultural landscapes.

After hotel pick-up at around 4:00 AM, drive to the community of Cusipata to enjoy a healthy breakfast. Cusipata is a native community with few inhabitants dedicated mostly to agriculture. Move on to the Community of LLaqta, and start your 2-hour hike up to Rainbow Mountain. On the way, see llamas, alpacas, and a beautiful mountain range. Take time to enjoy the landscape and take lots of pictures, before you slowly descend again to LLaqta community.
