Trek around the base of the highest mountain in Cusco’s Andes, and visit the multicolored Rainbow Mountain.
Dominating the horizon south of Cusco, the magnificent peak of Ausangate (6,384 meters 20944 feet) is the highest and most sacred mountain in southern Peru. The scenery is spectacular. Snow-capped peaks look down on seemingly endless grasslands studded with turquoise lakes, thermal pools, and herds of llamas and alpacas. Rainbow Mountain is one of the Cusco region’s most unusual natural attractions, where layers of accumulated sediment have created a multicolored mountain peak.
