In this program, we will visit one of the most breathtaking natural attractions of the region of Cusco “The mountain of 7colors”.
The Rainbow Mountain tour starts by picking you up from your hotel between 4.00 and 4.30 am. Then we will travel for 2 hours towards the south until we reach the district of Cusipata, where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet and take a brief rest.
Then, we will continue for 1 hour to the bus station, from where we will start our hike to the Mountain of Colours (4 km).
The hike will last approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, during which you can be enthralled by flora and fauna, amongst which the Llamas and Alpacas mark the special highlight. Additionally, you will be able to see the Apu Sarinini and the Ausangate which is the highest mountain of Cusco with an altitude of 6372 MASL.
According to Inca mythology, this mountain and its surrounding lakes, in particular the lake Sivinacocha, are the birthplaces of the masculine energy that fertilizes the holy mother earth “Pachamama”.
After a good hike, we will arrive at the top of the Rainbow Mountain where we will have enough time to enjoy the place with its astounding view and take some pictures. A professional guide will give you a short explanation and will be at your disposal for all your questions.
Thereafter we will hike the same route back, to the bus station and from there, take the transportation towards Cusipata, where we will be able to enjoy a delicious lunch at a buffet restaurant in the countryside.
This will be the last stop of our beautiful experience, before going back to Cusco, where we will arrive approximately at 4.30 pm.
