Mountain Rainbow of Peru (Vinicunca) is a mountain with fringes, of several colors, is in a remote part of the region of Ausangate. Before 2015, the Rainbow Mountains of Peru were a little visited attraction; Only recently have they begun to gain international attention among travelers and hikers to Peru. We believe that the Rainbow Mountain of Peru will become as popular as some of the many other well-known attractions in Peru. We specially designed this Ausangate and Vinicunca Trek in response to requests from our customers. The mountain is known locally as Vinicunca. Cunca in Quechua means “neck”. The meaning of Vini is unknown, but it could possibly refer to the different colors of the mineral layers that make up the rock formation. Our unique itinerary takes you to the remote unspoilt nature of the Ausangate region, famous for its breathtaking landscapes of high altitude, turquoise lakes and herds of alpacas. We started trekking to Vinicunca, the Rainbow Mountain, and then joined the last part of the classic Ausangate trip. This rugged and adventurous Ausangate and Vinicunca Trek requires 3 days of acclimatization to the altitude, in Cusco or another high altitude location.
