The Rainbow Mountains (Vinicunca and Palccoyo) are nestled high in the Peruvian Andes.
The more popular Vinicunca Mountain is a breathtaking formation of colorful mineral deposits spread across sandstone rocks. Although the site is located just 3 hours away from Cusco, it is still a unique natural wonder that promises a memorable, high-altitude adventure.
Book a Rainbow Mountain day trip and trek to the top of the Vinicunca Mountain. Be one of the first ones to reach the top, and on your way back, hike along off-the-beaten paths in the jaw-dropping Red Valley.
If you don’t want to miss out on the colorful landscapes – but the Vinicunca trek seems challenging – check out our Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain alternative tour. This hike takes you to the top in just one hour, while providing an amazing view in one of Peru’s most picturesque areas. The best of all is that there are almost no tourists around!
