info Info about this incredible tour

This tour leads to one of the most popular tourist attractions in Cusco, the beautiful Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain. If you like trekking tours, this is the ideal tour, as you will hike for around 1.5 hours until arriving as one of the first ones at the top. During the Vinicunca trek, you will be able to see red mountain landscapes, llamas, alpacas and also the Ausangate mountain, the highest mountain in Cusco.

On the way back, you will hike through the incredible red valley, another highlight of this day tour, for around 2.5 hours. In comparison to other agencies that only go to the viewpoint, we actually enter the red valley and hike on paths without any people around. We recommend that you are in good shape for this hike and that you are acclimated to the altitude so that you can avoid the altitude sickness.

If you’re looking for an alternative that is not that difficult and where you only hike less than 1 hour, you should check out the alternative rainbow mountain trek.

“We managed to get there early enough before bigger groups of people. During our hike in the red valley there was not a single other sole.”
