Are you an adventurer dreaming of an undiscovered gem located off the beaten path?

Day 1: Cusco - Chillca - Rainbow Mountain - Chillca - Cusco

We will pick you up in Cusco at 3:00 a.m., from any hotel you stay in Cusco. It is a three and a half hour drive in our private van, during which we will pass through the traditional villages and see some incredible views of the Andes. When we get to the trail road for this hike, let’s stop and enjoy a lovely breakfast, prepared by our trekking chef. After breakfast, we will start the trek from Chillca, at 3,700 m / 12,139 feet of elevation. From here, it will be a four hour hike, uphill to reach the famous Rainbow Mountain. Along the way, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Andes, glacial peaks, red mountains, rocky hills, and traditional llamas and alpacas grazing along the valley. Upon reaching the summit of the mountain, you will be able to spot some of the Andean fauna. This is the only place in Cusco where you can see wild Vicuñas, the Andean camel. The vicuñas are in the same family as the llamas, although they are smaller. Their wool is the most expensive wool in the world.

Once we reach the top of the Rainbow Mountain, you will have ample time to soak up the majesty of the red mountains that surround this area. You will also see incredible views of the valleys and Ausangate Glacier Peak in front of you. Ausangate is the highest mountain in the Cusco region (just below 21,000 feet of elevation), and is part of the range of the Vilcanota mountain range. While you enjoy these magnificent views, our staff will bring you some hot drinks and share some information with you about the composition of these mountains and how it became striated in the rainbow of colors. After taking some amazing photos and soaking up the views (maybe we’ll even see some condors floating in the drafts), we’ll begin our descent with a two hour, downhill hike. Then we will meet with our trekking chef and enjoy a delicious and freshly prepared hot lunch. After lunch we will start our journey back to the village of Chillca, to take our private van back to Cusco. We will drop you off at your hotel around 7 p.m.
