Rainbow mountain (Vinicunca) + Valle rojo (red valley) + pick-up at Cusco airport

Why choose this tour?

  • If you like hiking, this is the ideal tour for you. You will enjoy a 2 hours hike around beautiful Andean landscapes. You will sightsee the rainbow mountain at Vinicunca, and the red valley. Plus a sneak peek to El Ausangate, one of the highest mountains near to Cusco.
  • We are the only agency that will take you through the red valley. The 3 hours hike is physically demanding, so good physical condition and acclimatization to elevation are necessary to avoid high elevation sickness.
  • If you are looking for a less physically demanding option, we suggest you
    check the tour to the rainbow mountain at Palccoyo.

We will begin our adventure picking up our passengers between 04:00 a.m. and 05:00 a.m. in the morning. Then we will travel to the town of Cusipata (3400 mabove the sea level) where we will have breakfast. The trip will continue in our private transportation, through narrow roads, canyons and high plateaus, until we arrive to the town of Chillihuani. From there we will go to Phuluwasipata mountain.


We will hike for 2 hours to the Vinicunca mountain aka rainbow mountain, located at 5000 m of elevation. The amount of minerals that this mountain possesses, give its rainbow-like colored lines that makes it so special.


Then we will continue to the viewpoint of the red valley, a site rarely visited by tourists. It will take us about 3 hours to hike back to Phuluwasipata. On arrival, our bus will take us from Phuluwasipata to Cusipata to have lunch. Afterward, we will return to Cusco city.
