Full description
Begin your adventure with pickup from your Cusco hotel between 6:30-7 AM. Make a stop along the drive to enjoy a delicious snack of quinoa, seasonal fruits, cookies, chocolate, coca candy and mineral water or bottled juice. 

Once you’ve arrived in Paucarpata District, visit the local museum and hear a fascinating talk on the symbolism of Rainbow Mountain. Take some photos before the real adventure begins. Journey to the community of Phulawasipata, where you’ll get a short introduction from your local guide before starting a 2-hour trek to the awe-inspiring Rainbow Mountain.

Along the way, marvel at beautiful landscapes until you reach a height of 5,200 meters above sea level to admire breathing views of Rainbow Mountain. Take some atmospheric photos here and enjoy a rich coca tea before continuing on for another 30 minutes for more stunning views.
