Depart from your Cusco hotel very early in the morning as you proceed on a 3-hour drive to Huambo. Fuel up with an included boxed breakfast meal before beginning your ascent of this unusual mountain.
You’ll spend the next 1.5 hours scaling Colorado Mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain, eventually reaching the summit, where you’ll take in panoramic views of the surrounding alpine scenery. The mountain’s unique layers of red, gold and turquoise rocks add an unexpected, and photogenic, bonus to this beautiful vista.
Spend the next hour trekking back down the mountain, after which you’ll drive back and receive a drop-off at your Cusco hotel.
