Vinicunca or Rainbow mountain is part of the the Ausangate range. The mountains here are formed of colorful sediments which give the site a unique, surreal and colorful look. The mountain can only be accessed by foot or horse.
From the nearest road, there’s a trail leading up, which takes about three hours to walk. Including the three hours drive from Cusco, it takes around six hours in total to reach the top.

Altitude

The walk is classified as grade C, which means that the walk is quite long and many sections are at very  high altitude (5,200 m/+ 16,000 feet). We recommend that you have spent at least 3 days in Cusco or at a similar altitude immediately before undertaking this trek, to acclimatize.


Trekking experience
This walk is not suitable for first-timers. If you are a strong walker and have completed some moderate walks before this, then you should be fine. You will need a good level of physical condition and endurance, as it will be trekking over many steep sections.


Weather
On the mountains at 5000 meters high we may experience different weather patterns in the same day.  Weather may be quite unpredictable and rough. blizzards and storms are not uncommon.
