We will pick you up at Around 5 am in the morning from your Cusco hotel and set out on a drive through the South Valley. The drive to Cusipata (4,326 m. / 14,189 ft) is 2 hours long. We will have a fueling continental breakfast.
We then start off on our hike, following a lovely stream. You will be immediately surprised by literal herds of alpacas and llamas. We will have consistent views of the Ausangate Mountain. We will hike through villages and interact with the local residents. Back on the trail, we encounter more of the traditional elements of this trek. This includes potato fields and unique fauna. We have the prospect of seeing chinchillas and vicunas. Vicunas are the only non-domesticated animal of the llama family in Peru. Many red mountains are also a highlight of this portion of the hike.
After a total hike of approximately 1hour 30 minutes, we finally reach our destination, which we came to see….the Rainbow Mountains (5,020 m. / 16,466 ft). After getting over the shock of their beauty, you will have time to explore the area. You will have time to take pictures and soak in the environment. We will spend approximately 1hour at the top. At this point, it is time to go back down through the Red valley. We hike downhill. The hike will take 1 hour 30 minutes. Our private van will be waiting for us to take us 1-hour driving to Cusipata where we will have our buffet lunch Finally, we take our transportation for 2 hours more back to Cusco and drop you off at your Cusco hotel.
