Early, around 04:00 AM – 04:40 AM, we will pick you up from the hotel in Cusco, to make the trip to Qollasuyo - the Southern part of the ancient land of the Quechua people (Cusco). This area played a huge role in the history of the Tawantinsuyo (Ancient Incas).
We will begin our walk at the foot of the Ausangate mountain range. This will be followed by an ascent of approximately 1 hour to the highest point of the Rainbow Mountain. During this journey, we will have the opportunity to see the different types of South American camelids (relatives of the camel).
Upon reaching the red hill, we will have time to soak in and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. Finally, we will continue our journey with a 1-hour descent into the flat terrain and back to where the walk began, HANCHIPATA. Here, the driver will be waiting for us to return, passing through PITUMARCA to the District of CUSIPATA where we can enjoy a tasty lunch. Following lunch, we will return to Cusco, arriving at approximately 4:30 PM.
NOTE: After Vinicunca, there is an optional additional trek into the Red Valley. The duration of the walk is approximately 30 minutes, and you will also be required to pay an entrance fee to the area of 20 soles (Roughly $7)
