Full description
One of the most picturesque destinations in Peru is the Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca. To get to this amazing place your journey will have to start very early, around 4:00 AM, as it takes about 2.5 hours to 3 hours to arrive at the site.

Once you arrive, your guide will take you up the trail, but you can also go at your own pace or rent a horse if you wish. The hike upwards will take nearly 4 hours. The mountain itself can only be accessed by foot or horse.

After this incredible trek up the mountain, you will be free to spend some time at the top to admire and take pictures of the surrounding landscape.

Afterward, the descending portion of the hike begins. By 3:00 PM the group tour leaves and heads towards Cusco.
