About
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.

The drive through the country and small villages was great. Freddy was professional and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the driver was safe. I recommend it. So many alpacas and llamas!

This is truly a hidden gem in Cusco. I was worried about taking this tour due to various things I read about the difficult hike and the weather conditions, but I am so glad that i took the risk! It was stunning!
The hike up was quite challenging, although there are horses we were determined to reach to the peak walking- It was chilly and I wore layers including a hat and gloves. We were worried about the rain but we lucked out!

We did the tour to the Rainbow Mountain with Fredy. Me and my wife we can really recommend to book a tour with Minka Peru Expedition. Everything was very good: the early pick up from the hotel, the breakfast, the guiding, local lunch. Fredy did the best he could to make this unforgettable. He looked after us, helped us, told us good informations about the mountain and stayed friendly and funny. After the rainbow mountain, we decided to go to the red valley too. That was not of any problem at all for Fredy. He infact accompanied us. A big thanks to Minka Peru and Fredy.
