Rainbow Mountain Full Day

The Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca, is by far the most popular single-day trek in recent years. It is located south of the city of Cusco, near one of the most important mountains in the country (due to its large size). It also very special for local inhabitants due to its connection with the Andean religion or philosophy. The Ausangate mountain, with an altitude of 6 390 meters, 20,964.57 ft. is the highest in the Cusco region. For centuries, the local people have hiked to the highest points braving the snow in order to worship and bring offerings to the mountain and the Pachamama.

Lorenzo Expeditions has designed a tour that will not only take you hiking to more than 5 000 meters, 16,404.2 ft.  but also fill you with history, customs and culture, while enjoying this scenic beauty up on the Rainbow Mountain.
