Day 1

The adventure begins early

Our day begins with pickup from your hotel in Cusco around 05:00 a.m. We will start our trip by van to the beginning of the trail, approximately 3 hours from Cusco to reach the Hanchipacha community, where we will stop for breakfast. After that, we will take you 15 more minutes to the community of Quesiuno (4,326 m / 14,189 ft).

We will start our walk for approximately 3 hours. Along the way, we will be able to enjoy incredible landscapes of herds of alpacas and llamas, the Ausangate mountain, many red mountains and traditional local houses.

The mountains are one of the spectacular places in the Vilcanota mountain range, waiting for a natural coloration, this coloration is due to the presence of sedimentary stones in erosion. What is impressive is how the stones have been formed to make a set of seven colors.

When we finally reach the Rainbow Mountains (5,020m / 16,466ft), you will have time to explore the area and take pictures. We will dedicate approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour (it depends on the speed of your walk and the weather conditions).

Afterwards, we will begin our walk back to the beginning of the trail that lasts 2 hours approx. (Quesiuno Community) where we will take our transportation to the Hanchipacha community for lunch. Then, we will transfer to Cusco arriving at 05:00 p.m.
