Overview
Visit Rainbow Mountain, one of the most distinct formations in the Peruvian Andes, on this full-day tour and hike from Cusco. A challenging high altitude hike takes you to the base of this small mountain which features bands of color created by natural mineral deposits in the earth. Take in the view of Rainbow Mountain as well as surrounding Andean peaks. Look for grazing alpacas and llamas and try to spot Andean condors.
