Itinerary

DAY 1

Rainbow Mountain Tour Itinerary

Embark on a journey to witness one of the most breathtaking natural attractions in the city of Cusco, the Rainbow Mountain or “La Montaña Arocoiris”. Your tour begins with an early pick up from your hotel between 4:30 am and 4:45 am as we embark on a 2-hour journey to the Cusipata neighborhood. Here, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious breakfast and rest for a bit before continuing the journey.

We will travel in a private vehicle for another hour to reach the bus stop, the starting point of the Rainbow Mountain trek. The 4 km trail to the summit is an approximate 1 hour and 30 minute excursion. During the trek, you will get to witness the unique flora and fauna of the region, including llamas and alpacas, and be able to admire the majestic Apu Sarinini and Ausangate mountains which stand at a towering 6,372 meters in altitude.

The Rainbow Mountain holds a significant place in Inca mythology as it is believed to be the birthplace of the masculine energy that fertilizes the sacred Mother Earth “Pachamama.” Upon reaching the summit of the Rainbow Mountain, you will have ample time to take in the breathtaking views and snap some memorable photos. Your professional guide will also provide a brief explanation of the significance of this place in Inca culture.

After a leisurely stroll down the mountain, we will return to the starting point and head to the Cusipata restaurant for a delicious buffet lunch in a traditional rural setting. After lunch, we will begin our return journey to Cusco, arriving around 4:30 pm, marking the end of this unforgettable experience.
