166 Reviews

The Inca Trail might be the most popular trek in the Peruvian Andes near Cusco, but anarguably equally impressive (and certainly less crowded) trail leads visitors to Mt. Ausangate.Nevado Ausangate, the highest mountain in southern Peru, peaks at 20,945 feet (6,384 meters)above sea level. On a clear day, the snow-topped peak can be seen from Cusco.

The Ausangate Trail, named after the peak, takes five to six days, plus travel time to and from Cusco from the trail head. The trail begins in the brown grasslands of the Andean plateau and crosses four high-altitude passes, covering some of the most stunning terrain in the Cusco region. The trail, much of it at altitudes of more than 13,100 feet (4,000 meters) passes high alpine lakes, glacial valleys and small villages where alpacas graze freely and residents still dress in their traditional attire.

Rainbow Mountain Day Tour from Cusco

Rainbow Mountain Day Tour from Cusco

This peculiar geographical accident - or work of art of nature - belongs to the snowy Ausangate, in the Vilcanota mountain range. Although its particular beauty is directly proportional to the height in which it is located (the highest point reaches 5,200 m s.n.m.), thousands of people around the world dream of visiting it and arrive to Cusco to make their wish come true. Apu was the name by which the wise Inca civilization called the mountains to which he attributed mystical powers. Although most of these majestic mountains were covered with snow, there was one that stood out for its color: the Vinicunca Mountain, also known as “the mountain of the 7 colors”. The Incas gave Vinicunca a masculine character, considering that the masculine energy that fertilized Mother Earth, known as Pachamama, emerged from its foundations. As if that were not enough, the natural framework that surrounds it is no less impressive: turquoise lagoons, a varied fauna and dazzling snowfalls.

The Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain Day Trek is an amazing experience in the Wilcanota Mountain Range of the Andes & a great alternative. This mini trek is perfect for travelers who want to view the colorful mountains of this region without the extra effort of partaking in a full day high altitude trek. It is also a great option for those traveling with their children. Although Palccoyo is at high altitude – the trail itself is short, relatively flat & is far less crowded than Vinicunca.
