Introductión

Vinicunca, the Mountain of 7 Colors, or Rainbow Mountain, is located in the Southern Region of Cusco. This gratifies even the most demanding travellers and trekkers, endowing unforgettable memories of the raw sites of and around it. Sumptuous panoramas of high mountains, formidable glaciers, crystalline rivers, calm lakes, harmonious pastoral scenes of grazing alpaca kept by Andean natives and the humble families of the region. This new route is genuinely unique and is a real adventure through a preserved wild natural terrain including Puka Punta, "red lead", a mountain in the Willkanuta mountain range and small communities of Quechua-speaking descendants. The route reaches great heights between 4710m and 5200m for stunning eagle eye views. Explore this route and it is likely that you will have this extension to the south all to yourself, encountering few or no other route hikers. This one-day tour is able to offer travellers an alternative trail that is paramount to other trips and destinations.

Briefing between 5pm - 7pm the evening before the trip in our office, explaining all tour details from our guide.

Then we continue along the road through small villages until we arrive to the community of Hanchipata - Quesiuno (1 hour and 20 minutes by bus), the ideal starting point to walk the route.
