RAINBOW MOUNTAIN + RED VALLEY FULL DAY

Description

RAINBOW MOUNTAIN & RED VALLEY: FULL DAY

Vinicunca and Winikunka mountains, nicknamed “Rainbow Mountain” and “Montana de Siete Colores” for their incredible and unique coloring, is one of the most breathtaking views you’ll experience in the Andes Mountain range of Cusco—pair it with a stop at the incredible “red valley” and you’ll have more photos than you know what to do with. It also offers a unique challenge, forcing visitors to climb to 5,100 meters in order to enjoy the natural beauty.

TRIP ITINERARY

We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco between 5:00 and 5:30 am or, if you are close to the office, you can meet us at the office at 5:30 to start the tour. After everyone is in the car, we’ll begin our 2-hour drive to Cusipata town, where we will stop for our included breakfast. You will also have time to use toilets and stretch your legs. After fueling up with a hearty meal, we will drive for one more hour, reaching the Chilliwani trailhead around 9:00/9:30 am. We’ll then begin the 1.5- to 2-hour uphill hike to the lookout. Once at the peak of the mountain, you’ll have plenty of time stand in awe, take some photos, and listen to your guide explain more about the mountain, the region, and more. Once we’ve finished on the mountain top, you’ll have two options on how you’d like to return to the car:

  • Option 1: Continue hiking through the Red Valley, a unique and beautiful landscape of red mountains. The hike takes about 2 hours.
  • Option 2: You can return to the car along the same path you took to arrive, meaning you will have a downhill hike.

Once the entire group is back to the car, we will return to Cusipata for a well-deserved lunch and finish our drive to Cusco, reaching Plaza Regocijo, our drop-off point, around 5:30 p.m.
