Trek Rainbow Mountain – Cuzco PERU
Qechua people of the Andes call it Vinicunca Mountain. The Rainbow Mountain hike is ranked by National Geographic as one of the top 100 places you should visit before you die. Vinicunca is a Qechua word that means “7 Color Mountain” The colors are caused by mineral deposits that formed in layers over millions of years resulting in colored rock strata. The colors are most vibrant on cloudy days when the treeless landscape collides with the open sky to become the backdrop to a dazzling kaleidoscope of natural pigments.
The tour starts in a town in Cuzco, where you are given breakfast, it is important to eat since the tour can last more than 5 hours. Once you start the hike, you must go through the altitudinal floors of Cusco to reach the spectacular mountain of the seven colors. A unique experience that you can not imagine.
