RAINBOW MOUNTAIN LAKE

Your day starts in Cusco where you are picked up from your hotel at 4:15am for a 3.5-hour drive to the start of the trail. You will be given a local Peruvian style breakfast prepared by our chef and fuel up for the hike ahead of you.
The hike to the rainbow mountain will take around 2 hours and is a distance of 4 kilometers (2.5 miles). Throughout your journey you will pass through a vibrant green valley with the snowcapped peak of Apu Ausangate towering in the distance. You will see hundreds of roaming alpacas, and have the chance to truly see how Quechua people live. As you get closer to the Rainbow Mountain you will begin to see the first signs of the colored minerals that formed the painted hills. Your guide will explain what makes up the existence of the Rainbow Mountain and how it was formed, and finally with one last push you will hike up to a vantage point that gives you a 360-degree view of the beautiful landscape that makes up the sacred land.
We will have snacks on top and take a relaxing break to soak up the vistas, where you can enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. At this time, you can also enjoy some coca tea that the locals prepare for visitors. After about an hour we will continue on to the red valley, another awe-inspiring area not to be missed by trekkers but seldom visited. From here, we continue our hike back to the trailhead (1 hour). Shortly after you will have a gourmet lunch prepared by our chef in a traditional mud-house and depart back to Cusco, arriving around 4pm.
