Full Day - Rainbow Mountain - Day Hike

The rainbow mountain has become really famous these days, and all due to the amazing combination of colors you can enjoy from afar or on the top of a ridge overlooking the whole range, What you’ll see is Amazing.

Called “7 colors mountain” or “Colored hill” by the locals its real name is Vinicunca. A mountain in the southwest of Peru in the way to the snow peaks Ausangate. The attraction comes from the several stripes of different colors you can observe once you are there; this due to its mineralogical composition present on the slopes and summits.

The hike takes you from the mountain's slope with scenic small villages through sandy roads up to the top in just one day.
