Rainbow Mountain Tour | Trek Vinicunca, Wildlife and landscape

Summary

Summary

The 7 Colors Mountain Tour is a breathtaking day hike in the Vilcanota Mountain Range, on a route we call “Rainbow Mountain Tour” which is very close to the highest and most sacred mountain in Southern Peru called Ausangate (6,377mts). This “Apu” bearer of life is the guardian of one of the most pristine ecosystems in the world. Thus, our hike will be accompanied by snow-capped peaks, glaciers, herds of llamas and alpacas. This hike offers a selection of wildlife and breathtaking scenery. It will probably be one of the best things you will see on your visit to Peru.
