This is a journey through a forgotten land of wild Andean landscapes, where you will discover snow-covered mountains, herds of alpacas and llamas, amazing views of the Andean valley as well as some small typical Andean towns which are wide spread along the road. Hidden deep in the Andes, you will finally find the beautiful rainbow mountains, named after the local people’s poncho colors.


Your adventure starts in Cusco where we pick you up from your hotel at 03:00 am. We start our 3 hour bus ride in our private tourist van in direction to the famous Ausangate Mountain (holy mountain Apu) until the town of Quesiuno. Here, we will have a nutritive breakfast and afterwards get ready to hike the ascending road through the Andean desert Puna. During the walk, you will be able to observe the Andean Camels from a very close distance. After approx. 4 hours  (depending on fitness level) you will reach the main destination: the Rainbow Mountain (Quechua: Vinicunca), also known as the 7-coloured mountain.

This view will definitely take your breath away! The large, bride colorful landscapes and on the other side the sacred mountain Ausangate with its impressive snowcapped picks.

After enjoying this great experience, we will descend the same path for approx. 2 hours back to the starting point, where you will have lunch. Then we take the bus back to Cusco, arriving there around 07:00 pm.
