Tour Details

Rainbow Mountain is one of the most impressive geological formations in the Andes mountain range. It has been recommended by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful places to visit in your lifetime. This place is also known as the 7-color mountain and has been considered a sacred mountain for spiritual retreats since ancient times. Here, you can feel the energy of the Apus (the spirits of the mountains) and rejuvenate yourself with positive energies. The maximum height of Rainbow Mountain is 5,100 meters.


According to various studies conducted at the site, the multicolored tones are a result of different minerals that cover the area in layers: red clay and mud (pink), clay (red), sandstone (white), marl (lavender), clay and copper rust (green), and limonites (brown yellow). These natural substances began to form 65 million years ago when water and rain covered the slopes and summits. Over time, the extreme weather conditions melted the snow, revealing what is now one of the most significant tourist attractions in Cusco.

Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Trek

Our journey begins with a morning pick-up from your hotel between 4:35 and 4:45 am. We will then head towards the town of Pitumarca, which will take approximately two hours. There, we will enjoy a delicious breakfast. Continuing our trip, we will pass through beautiful valleys, small canyons, and impressive pre-Inca terraces until we reach the community of CHILLIHUANI. From there, we will be treated to an impressive view of Apu Ausangate. After a briefing from our guide, we will start our hike, which will be gradual and last around 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Along the way, we will encounter various South American camelids, such as alpacas and llamas, as well as birds, lagoons, valleys, streams, and snow-capped peaks, until we finally reach Rainbow Mountain or ‘Montaña Siete Colores’ (‘Mountain of Seven Colors’).

This place is truly unique and magical, formed by nature’s whims. After enjoying a serene moment in contact with nature for about 40 to 50 minutes, we will begin our return to the town of CUSIPATA, where we will have lunch. Finally, we will head back to the city of Cusco.

An incredible journey to the Rainbow Mountain with Tayra Tours. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, everything was perfectly arranged. The hike was a bit challenging but absolutely worth it. The views of the multi-colored mountain were like nothing we’ve ever seen. Our guide, Carlos, was outstanding, providing insight into the area’s history and geology. The picnic lunch was a delightful touch. Thanks, Tayra Tours, for a magical and memorable day.

My solo trip to the Rainbow Mountain with Tayra Tours was beyond words. The early start was well worth it for the stunning sunrise views. The hike was challenging but exhilarating, and the guides were supportive and knowledgeable. Reaching the summit and seeing the vibrant colors of the mountain was a surreal experience. The provided snacks and lunch were delicious and much needed. A big thanks to Tayra Tours for an unforgettable adventure!
