Rainbow Mountain 1-Day Hike

This challenging Rainbow Mountain Hike takes you through an undiscovered land of remote desert landscapes, snow capped peaks and herds of alpaca prior to arriving atop of these hidden painted hills. You will spend a day hiking high in the Andes, insuring a memory that will last forever.


At 4:00am you will be picked up in a private van from your Cusco Hotel by one of our local Spanish/English speaking guides. Thereafter, you will enjoy 3 hours of driving through traditional villages with an astounding panorama of the Andes until arriving at the Quesiuno trail head. Here you’ll be offered a wholesome breakfast and hot beverages.

Following breakfast, your Rainbow Mountain Hiking Tours will begin from the Inkintuyoc Bridge, next to a stream, before hiking uphill for about 5 hours until you arrive at the popular Rainbow Mountain. As soon as you get to the peak of the mountain, you will view a variety of Andean wildlife including llamas and alpacas. In fact, this is the only place in Peru where wild Vicuñas and the Andean camel can be seen.

As soon as you arrive at Rainbow Mountain, you’ll relish in the incredible panorama of the valley and the tallest peak of the region – Ausangate Glacier, 21,000ft. After a refreshing lunch, you’ll have ample time for photos of the vibrantly colored minerals that have formed these painted hills.

Then, your 4 hour descent will begin and en route, you’ll have the chance to meet the local Quecha people, who still follow the old customs of the Incas & weave the typical garments that are available in various shops & museums throughout Peru. Following this memorable Rainbow Mountain Hike Tour, you will be driven back to your Cusco Hotel in one of our private vans.
