Throughout your journey you will pass through a vibrant green valley with the impressive Ausangate Mountain towering in the distance. As you get closer to Rainbow Mountain you will begin to see the first signs of the colored minerals that form the painted hills, and finally we will hike up to a vantage point that gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful landscape that makes up the sacred land.
*A minimum of 2 persons is needed for this trek
This is a challenging day of hiking. Hikers should be reasonably fit, and spend some time in Cusco to acclimate (we recommend 3 days in Cusco or similar elevation). The hike takes place over 4970m (16,300ft) and is about 16 kilometers in length (9.5 miles) in total length, with an elevation gain of 685m (2250ft). The main reason this trek is difficult is because of the elevation. The terrain is a gradual climb and you are walking in a wide valley for the majority of the trek. Please consult your doctor for proper advice on trekking in high altitude.
