info Info about this incredible tour

Within 2 days, you will get to know Cusco’s precious natural environment: the Sacred Valley and the Rainbow Mountains. During the Sacred Valley tour, you will discover Chinchero (instead of Pisac for now due to construction works on the road to Pisac that would result in delays in visiting the other sites), the archaeological site of Moray, the salt mines of Maras and Ollantaytambo, the last stop before heading to Machu Picchu. Depending on your preference, you can stay in Ollantaytambo, continue to Aguas Calientes and visit Machu Picchu in the morning or you can also just return to Cusco.

The short trekking tour to the Rainbow Mountains will show you postcard-like mountains and a unique landscape you can only find south of Cusco. However, this is not the typical trekking tour to the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain. This is the alternative tour to the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountains where you -instead of being with hundreds of other tourists – will be almost alone. After around an hour of trekking, you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views and see three Rainbow Mountains instead of just one.
