This route is ideal for those who want to experience ancient Inca history and outdoor adventures. Start with the Imperial City and discover what made Cuzco the center of the Inca Empire. In the Sacred Valley you'll visit the sprawling Pisak archaeological site, the enchanting Morea and Maras sites, then Ollantaytambo on the way to Machu Picchu.
Wake up early to be the first to see the sunrise over Machu Picchu, then return to Cusco the same day. A trip to Rainbow Mountain will be like anything you've ever seen and certainly very different from the climate of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. If you want to book your tour packages, you can search online by typing phrases like “Rainbow Mountain Vinicunca”, “Rainbow Mountain Peru Tour Service” or visit Andean Soul Adventure for booking.
Your hike at Rainbow Mountain is like no other due to the rich color of the mountains. This is a newer attraction, so there are fewer visitors. The hike takes about 2 hours and is challenging due to the height of Mount Pelangi and the terrain you are going through.
The Rainbow Mountains (Vinikunka and Palcoyo) are high in the Peruvian Andes. The more popular Mount Vinicunca is a stunning formation of colorful mineral deposits scattered across the sandstone cliffs. Even though the site is only 3 hours from Cusco, it is still a unique natural wonder that promises an unforgettable high-altitude adventure. Book a day trip to Rainbow Mountain and hike to the top of Mount Vinikunka. Be one of the first to reach the top and hike the untrodden trails of the stunning Red Valley on the way home.
