What to Expect on our amazing “Full-Day Rainbow Mountain Tour by Horse” from Cusco

Day 01: Cusco – Cusipata – LLactoc – Rainbow Mountain Peru – Vinicunca

In the morning of Rainbow Mountain day trip, we will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 04:00 am and then we will travel by our comfortable van around two hours through the South Valley of Cusco passing picturesque Andean towns until arriving to Cusipata – Paucarpata district (3,300 m /10,826 feet above sea level), where we will stop to enjoy our breakfast.

After a delicious breakfast, we will head back to the van to continue the journey for about 1 hour following a mountain dirt road that pass through traditional villages, with amazing views of the ancient Inca terraces, still used for farming, fertile valleys, herds of sheep, llamas and alpacas and the occasional shepherd or local people moving about their daily activities, as well as rocky mountains to the Rainbow Mountain trailhead, known as Llacto (4,638 m / 15,216 feet above sea level).

Once we will reach to the trailhead or bus parking place, we will enjoy amazing beautiful scenery views of the Peruvian Andes and glacial peaks. We will then start our adventure horseback riding excursion to Vinicunca Mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain, following a clearly marked trail. Along the way, we will observe some alpacas and llamas grazing along the hillsides; this area is home of numerous indigenous Quechua people who are still preserving their ways.

As we approach the famous Rainbow Mountain, we’ll begin to see the colored minerals that form the painted hills and also, we will have some great views of ice-glaciers. If we’re lucky, we might spot wild vicuñas roaming across the alpine landscape, fauna of the non-domesticated place of the camelid family in South America.

After 1 hours of horseback ride we will arrive close to the spectacular colorful Mountains (5,100 m / 16,500 ft.) The last 25 minutes you need to walk to reach out the lookout of the Rainbow Mountain or the Seven Colors Mountain, horses are not allowed to take you all the way to the top.

Once we will reach the summit’s lookout point (5,200 m/ 17,000 feet above sea level), we’ll have sweeping panoramic views of not only Rainbow Mountain or Vinicunca Mountain but also the Ausangate snow-capped mountain range (the highest in Cusco), the valley with grazing alpacas and the ‘Red Valley’ in the distance. The lookout has a mind-blowing views of this natural wonder and places around it. Make sure to take a lot of pictures of this amazing landscape!

At the top of Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain in Peru. We’ll take our time to admire this natural formation’s unique beauty and feel the thrill of witnessing an unforgettable spectacle. Then, we’ll explore the surroundings while your guide explains the theories regarding this mountain’s origin that seems to be taken from the gods’ colorful dream.

There we will take a break between 30 minutes to 1 hour; depending on how we feel in the Vinicunca Pass or Mountain of 7 Colors and the weather condition. If you want to stay longer, just inform your guide. Then we will walk back down to the horse station and then, return by the same route to the point where we started the horseback ride (Llactoc), where our transport will be waiting to take us back to Cusipata to enjoy our lunch.

Following lunch, we will start the return trip for 2 hours to the city of Cusco, arriving between 4 and 5 in the afternoon and we’ll drop you off at your Cusco hotel.

    Travel Guide


    Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain) is a mountain pass nestled in the greater Andes Mountains, about 3 hours away in the south east of Cusco, in the opposite direction of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. Known more commonly by travelers as the Rainbow Mountain Peru and by locals as La Montaña de Siete Colores (mountain of seven colors) or Cerro Colorado (colored hill), the geographical wonder is famous for its rainbow tonality- a surreal natural phenomena of mineral deposits streaked across sandstone rock.

    In an area claimed to have one of the most impressive mountain sceneries in the Andes, Vinicunca is in close proximity to the snow capped Ausangate, the highest and most sacred mountain in the Cusco region.

    Rainbow Mountain Peru can be accomplished as either a part of longer trekking routes such as:

    Or a shorter trip focused on Vinicunca. According to your outdoor interests and personal time constraints, trips range from two to seven days and are available with private camping accommodations.

    One day tours are widely offered from Cusco and Peru Spirit Adventure offers several ways for you to experience the Rainbow Mountain hike. The mountain pass is at high altitude, and on a multi day trip you have more time to acclimatize which is essential to factor in. Furthermore day trippers take the same route up and down, usually visiting at the same time jostling for the view, while longer routes can better avoid the group tours. Equally as important, multiple days give you more time to explore one of the most pristine mountain ecosystems in the world – Rainbow mountain is definitely not the only highlight of this area!
