Day 1: Cusco – Rainbow Mountain - Cusco
Day 1: Cusco – Rainbow Mountain - Cusco

You will be picked up from your hotel at 5 am to leave to the southern valley of Cusco, a bus drive of approximately 2 hours. Here you will have a small stop for breakfast (included). After breakfast, the trip will continue for 45 more minutes on bus until you reach the starting point of the Rainbow Mountain Trek.

The Rainbow Mountain Trek hike takes approximately 2 hours until reaching the top of the mountain. The hike is mostly a climb up to the top (16,732 ft / 5,100 m), which is generally an easy trail. Nevertheless, the altitude is what makes this hike a challenge. Along the hike you will see beautiful landscapes, some local families and of course many llamas and alpacas. Once you reach the top you can appreciate grand Ausangate, one of the largest snowfalls in the Cusco region. When everyone finishes taking pictures of the Rainbow Mountain, you will start the descent until getting back to the bus. You will return by bus to Ccolca and have lunch there. After lunch, the bus drive will continue for 2 more hours until arriving at Cusco at 4pm - 5pm approximately.
