Hiking Rainbow Mountain Itinerary

Day 1:Cusco - Quisiuno - Rainbow Mountain - Quisiuno - Cusco

We will pick you up at your hotel very early in the morning (4:00 am). We will leave Cusco and head toward Quesiuno. The route winds through the South Valley as far as the town of Checacupe. Then we head up to the village of Quesiuno where you will enjoy a delicious breakfast prepared by our own chef.

After breakfast, our guides will give you a short briefing about our trek. Then we’ll get started hiking up the Rainbow Mtn. which reaches an elevation of 5200 masl. The distance that we will walk is about 10 km. round trip between Quesiuno and the mountain. Along the trail you will see some amazing high country landscapes, and you’ll see herds of thousands of alpacas and llamas that are being tended by the local mountain folk.

Upon reaching the scenic overlook on Rainbow Mtn., we will take a break. Then you can take some great photos of the mountain itself and the surrounding snow-capped peaks. How much time we spend at the summit depends a lot on the weather. Usually we stay about 30 or 40 minutes. From the summit, after letting our eyes drink in their fill of this multi-colored natural wonder, we will head back down along the same trail until we arrive at Quesiuno. There our chef will have your delicious lunch ready and waiting for you.

In the afternoon, after lunch, we will head to Cusco in our van. We should arrive in town at around 6:00 pm. We can drop you off at your hotel or nearby there if you like.

I have to admit that the climb was very challenging, but well worth the effort. Fantastic views, great company, and good food, too. Thanks, Travel 1.
