7 Colors Mountain – Vinicunca Ausangate Tour

7 Colors Mountain - Vinicunca Ausangate

Very early in the morning, we will start our journey across Valle Sur toward Phulawasipata, which is the starting point of our hike to the Cerro Colorado or 7-color Mountain, located about 100 km. southeast of Cusco city. After enjoying our breakfast, we will start our hike to reach the control center and enter this mystical place. During our walk we will observe how colors around us change due to the weather. We will reach an altitude of 5000 meters, approximately, which is the top of this mysterious mountain. Geological formations will reveal all its splendor; the contrast of the blue sky creates a formidable line between the coast desert and the Amazon jungle, guided by the beautiful Ausangate. After a guided visit, we will have lunch at one of the restaurants in the area. At the arranged time, we will return to Cusco.
