*If you want to make the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Trek and the Humantay Lagoon Trek, you must leave a free day between both activities because they have a high physical demand.

The pickup will be early in the morning, to begin our trip in a vehicle towards Cusipata. In this place we will have breakfast in a local family restaurant, after what we will continue for one more hour. From this place we will begin walking for about 1 and a half hours until reaching the highest point in the lookout of the mountain, at 16,732 feet of altitude. From this place it is possible to see the Ausangate Mountain and the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain, if the cloud conditions allow it.

After reaching the summit, we will get some rest and take pictures, before descending for one more hour by the same path to our vehicle and go to the place where we will have lunch. After the meal and recover some energy, we will continue the trip back to San Francisco Square in Cusco, where our tour ends.

*Entry tickets prices subject to change without previous notice.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • In what period of the year the trek is made?

    The tour is made during the whole year, always subject to weather conditions.

  • It is necessary to use trekking poles to make the activity?

    Because we are talking about a mountain activity, of medium-high difficulty, our suggestion is to go with trekking poles, although we know these are not essential for the walking.

  • What is the better time for the activity?

    Although it can be made during the whole year, usually the weather is more stable from June to November, in which there are more sunny days. However, like we are talking about a mountain tour, there are occasions that the fog and clouds could make impossible to see the color’s mountain.

  • Where do we can have lunch?

    For the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain Trek, we will have lunch in a dining room of a local family, in a place called Cusipata, once we finish walking. The lunch includes salad, main course and juice. Remember telling us if you are vegetarian or if you have any food allergies writing at reservas@denomades.com once you make the booking.
