Tour Details

The full day Vinicunca Peru Tour to the iconic Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain is one of the popular full day tours in Cusco. In Fact the seven colored mountains are the second most visited attraction in Peru after Machu Picchu. 

Cusco is home to two Rainbow Mountains, Vinicunca and Palccoyo. Vinicunca Rainbow Mountains are the most preferred one as it offers amazing views of the Peruvian highland at every turn. 

Palccoyo however is popular among travellers who are looking for a relatively easier option and are not keen on hiking. 

The colours of Vinicunca Rainbow Mountains are the result of the mineral deposits. These were covered under a blanket of snow until early 2016. 

When the snow started melting the colours appeared. It soon got all the deserving attention. It became a popular attraction in South America. 

On this full day trip to Rainbow Mountain you will be rewarded with sights of beautiful landscapes right from the moment you start hiking.
