Afterwards, as we crossed little mountains and view climate changes as we hike uphill. You may have luck and witness some beautiful Vizcachas, llamas and maybe even alpacas along stunning views of the surroundings.

Once you have arrived at the desired location of the Rainbow Mountain or well known in Cusco as Vinicunca (5200 mts/ 17060.4 ft) your eyes can feast on the array of colors that are there due to the result of global warming as the ice peaked that laid there previously melted and let uncovered this beautiful mountain full of colors that were created by the erosion of thousands of years, for us now to enjoy and appreciate. Take as many amazing photos as you desire and if you need some help with that we will be here for you, also give your fully attention to your guide explanations and wonder through the beautiful mountain at your leisure afterwards. Embark on your descent, which will be remarkably quicker than the ascent. Once you have reached the location, you will enjoy a lovingly prepared lunch in a tranquil location. After you have enjoyed your lunch, you will be taken back to Cusco in a private transportation and we should be arriving back into the city of Cusco at 18:30pm.
