Rainbow Mountain Full Day



From USD $45.00 per person

Enjoy the natural colours of the rarely visited Rainbow Mountain, hiking through some isolated communities, in which you may interact with the local's who are still keeping the culture alive! You’ll see snow capped peaks, herds of llamas, glaciers and turquoise lakes, all set within an incredibly colourful mountain range. The trek is one of the quietest in the region it is likely you will not see another trekker.

The trek offers a selection of wildlife including soaring condors, vicunas, bobcats and pumas. The colourful sandstone mountains in the Vinicunca area is probably the coolest thing you’ll see in Peru.
