Mt. Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain) Tours and Activities

star-4.5
423 Reviews

One would think that a rainbow-colored mountain would be fairly easy to spot, but in the case of Mt. Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain), set high in the Peruvian Andes, getting a view of the multihued wonder means waking up early to trek through mountains that burst with natural colors, but are thin on air considering they rise over 17,000 feet (5181m). Despite the physical challenges, however, seeing Vinicunca in person is a once-in-a-lifetime visual treat where you’ll likely find yourself gawking in silence and wondering, “how is this real?” With impressively straight and colorful lines, “Rainbow Mountain,” as it’s come to be known, explodes with hues of lavender and red that are caused by minerals in the soil, and looks like something from a coloring book as opposed to an actual Andean peak that few are lucky to see.

There are few places on earth where Mother Nature gives such an awesome display of color. Peru’s Rainbow Mountain (or Vinicunca) offers breathtaking sights of mountains striped maroon, turquoise, mint and sky blue. It is one of those places that photographs just cannot do justice, it really does have to be seen to be believed! Most trips to see the Rainbow Mountains require a challenging multi-day trek. We are delighted to be one of the first companies in the area to offer this brand new itinerary which offers the same beautiful views in a one day trip! The trail to Rainbow Mountain is lined with traditional villages, beautiful adobe style houses, herds of llamas and alpacas, and magnificent views of the towering Ausangate Glacier standing at over 6,000m (20,000 ft). Immersed in the amazing beauty and solitude found only in the Andes, this is a spectacular trip for hikers who love a true outdoor adventure, but who have just a short amount of time to spare.
