day starts in Cusco where you are picked up at 7:45 am for a 3-hour trip in a
private van to the start of the trail “at Quesiuno” (4400m). We then start to
walk uphill for approximately 2 hours until we reach our campsite. Our
experienced team will set up camp and mules will carry the luggage for this hike.
Depending on how you are feeling on arrival to the campsite, you may want to
hike up to see the rainbow mountain for the stunning sunset or you may decide
to rest. Our specialized cook will prepare dinner and we will rest early
to wake up early the next day. We can then take advantage of being the first
people to see “Vinicunca” at sunrise before the hordes of day-trippers arrive!
an early breakfast, we will enjoy the amazing landscapes and take a 1-hour hike
(approx.) to Rainbow Mountain and take advantage of the sunrise and be the
first people to see the spectacular views.
you will embark on your hike back down to the trailhead (about 2 hours) where
you will have your lunch. Our private vehicle will wait for us to depart back
to Cusco, where the drive will take around 3 hours.
