Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain
We leave the city of Cusco early in the morning and after 2.5 hours on our way we enter the community of Chiliuani. Here we can appreciate the Chilihuani valley where we can see a snowfall in the distance, and a variety of potato crops in this community. Within 15 minutes of arriving we can see a part of the red valley and the fauna of this area as vicuñas and alpacas.
Upon reaching the mountain we begin our ascent on a path along the mountain. Halfway up the ascent, the climb is a bit steeper, but there are horses available to help those in need. In total we will make the ascent in 2 hours. When we climb to the top we can see the Ausangate snowy and a circuit of reddish-colored mountains and numerous valleys connected in the mountains. Here it will be at a height of 5,100 meters with winds of up to 25km / h and temperatures of up to 4 Celsius.
Return by the way of ascent for 10 minutes, and then we make another ascent by another way towards the Red Valley for 20 minutes. There we stayed for 30 minutes to appreciate this wonder of nature.
