Full Day Trip to the Rainbow Mountains

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.

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.
