Hidden in the Andes mountain range, we find this mountain of impressive colors, one of the most important secondary destinations in the Cusco region.
This natural attraction is located in the town of Pitumarca, formerly only visited by the inhabitants of the area.
Nowadays, Vininunca or the so-called Mountain of Colors has become one of the most visited places by national and foreign travelers. It will only take one day to visit it, the hike is steep but not very long, so it is accessible to almost everyone.
If you enjoy the beautiful traditional landscapes of the Andes and a bit of hiking, this excursion is for you!
Very early in the morning, our transportation will pick us up from the hotel and drive us to Vinincunca or the so-called Seven Colors Mountain, known for its beautiful red colors.
After approximately 2 hours, we will stop for breakfast in the village of Cusipata - Paucarpata and continue to the final destination. We will follow the route for another 1 hour until we reach the starting point of the hike.
The ascent to the viewpoint is around 2h; meanwhile we will see a large number of llamas and alpacas that are at the mercy of shepherds dressed in beautiful and colorful costumes. We will pass through beautiful ravines in the direction of the highest parts, surrounded by snow-capped mountains (Ausangate).
Upon reaching this point, our guide will explain about the orography, ecosystem and color of the mountain, while we can witness wonderful views, take pictures and breathe the purest air of all.
The descent will be through the Red Valley, where you can see for the last time the mountain Vinincunca and start the way back to Cusco, with a stop for lunch.
Arrival in Cusco and end of services to continue with other destinations or excursions.
Remember that travelers who make the trip to the 7 Colors Mountain must be in good physical condition and adapted to the high altitude.
