ACTIVITY ITINERARY AND DESCRIPTION:
DAY 1: RAINBOW MOUNTAIN TREK
Rainbow Mountain is the hit new site to visit while you are in Cusco! This incredible hike is organized for travelers who are well acclimated to the altitude and can trek for 5 hours. Climbing up the mountain takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes and is a fairly steep climb ending at an altitude of over 5000 meters.
Distance: 7 km approx.
We will pick you up from your hotel between 4:00 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. to start our 3 hour trip towards the foothills of Mount Ausangate. Once we reach our destination, we will eat a boxed-breakfast and after a brief chat with the group, we will begin our trek. It will take people around 2 hours and 30min to reach the most beautiful point where we will have time to take photos of this enigmatic place! During our trek up and down the mountain, we will have the opportunity to see the varieties of South American camelids and the impressive Andes Mountains highlighted by the snowcapped Ausangate. We will have a brief meeting at the top to discuss the Rainbow Mountain and surrounding area and then you will have time to take in the beautiful landscape that makes up this sacred land in Cusco, Perú. We will then start our descent from the mountain, which should take around 2.5 hours. There will be options to take horses up or down from the mountain, if the climb becomes too challenging.
We will regroup at the bottom and then head to a small town to eat a delicious and Peruvian inspired buffet lunch! Once our stomachs are full, we will begin our drive back to Cusco and have a much needed siesta!
