Full-day Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley Trip from Cusco
From US$60,00
Overview
Peru's Red Valley and Rainbow Mountain offer beautiful wilderness and spectacular scenery, but reaching the heights without transport or local knowledge makes for a tough challenge. On this full-day guided tour, hike into the rugged Red Valley and reach the summit of spectacular Rainbow Mountain. Breakfast, lunch, entrance fees, and round-trip travel from Cusco are included, making for an easy day of adventure.
What to Expect

Following an early-morning pickup at your Cusco accommodation, board your air-conditioned minivan and head out for your full-day tour, starting with a traditional breakfast in the local Qesyuno community. Then, with energy levels high, follow rugged hiking trails through the Red Valley to the summit of Rainbow Mountain (Vinicunca)—an incredible naturally multicolored formation considered among the most spiritually significant peaks in Peru. From this vantage point at more than 16,500 feet (5,000 meters), admire panoramic views over the open countryside. 

With your guide to lead the way, spot native wildlife among the cliffs and trails, and enjoy the feeling of escaping the busy city. Stop for lunch along the trail and experience the tranquility of the Peruvian wilderness. 

Conclude your trek back in Qesyuno, then transfer back to central Cusco, where your tour ends.

Excellent logistics but needs to improve communication with customers

We picked this tour with trepidation due to the number of reviews of bogus tour companies on trip advisor so we were really looking for reassurance that our money had been well spent. Rainbow mountain is 5200m so should not be undertaken lightly as the...More

Only go if you’re heading to Red Valley!

We went on an overcast day, and rainbow mountain itself was fogged in (although I’ve read many reviews that it’s disappointing even on a clear day), but that was partially expected given the time of the year. However, when we arrived to the rainbow mountain...More

Rainbow Mountain day hike!

We were picked up late from our hotel, and transferred from a van to a bus full of tourists, but it was worth it. Coming from Denver, we'd compare this hike to climbing a 14er. We took Alti Vital, from the local convenient store, and...More
