What you'll do

Impressive view of the rainbow mountain glacier of the Andes mountain range, where this wonderful natural formation is located at 5030 meters above sea level. We started this activity inCusco city at 4 am in the morning by bus, going approximately 2 hours to the smoll comunite of Cusipata, where we have breakfast and then continue for 1 hour with the trip by bus and getting to the starting point of the walk which is at 4400 meters above sea level and we began to ascend slowly. We walk approximately 3 hours and reach the view point which is at 5030 meters above sea level from where you have a beautiful view of the mountain and the landscape of the red valley due to the large amount of minerals found in the area. and after this. and a wonderful view of the snowy mountain Ausangate which summit is at 6271 meters above sea level and the rainbow mountain, we return descending for about 1 hour and half to the starting point of the hike to board the bus and go to the lunch place in Cusipata and then we return to Cusco city arriving approximately at 4 pm
