Rainbow Mountain is an interesting mountain but somewhat underwhelming after a difficult hike at 16,000 feet. The valley is dripping in purples and greens, rust reds and Caribbean aquas, as if a painter has carelessly tossed all his brushes aside over the ragged peaks thrusting themselves diagonally through the grassy floor. Sheep and the occasional horse dot the landscape, grazing, seemingly oblivious to the beauty surrounding them. You’re rewarded to glimpses of the snow-blanketed Ausangate Mountain, and clouds spilling into the valley on the far side of Vinicunca. This hike is not steep and would not be difficult save for the altitude. It gets cold and windy; dress appropriately. Entrance is 10 soles and you can also hire a horse to ride up. You can find day tours that leave by bus from Cusco, but also can drive yourselves. There is also a 3-day trek in this area.Show more
