Ausangate Trek to Rainbow Mountain

Ausangate Trek to Rainbow Mountain

Since 2014 and since the very first day of our operation, Peru Summit Adventures has been blazing new trails, new ways of experiencing in Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain Trek. Our trailblazing is just one reason we are a uniquely qualified local company to ensure you have a trip of a lifetime.

Ausangate Trek to Rainbow Mountain: located in Vilcanota range, known for its remarkable colors, glacier lagoons, bunch of alpaca/llamas, snowcapped mountains that color these amazing multi-day hikes, experience this adventure on a fully-supported trek by Peru Summit Adventures private crew.

This exhilarating adventure for both mind and body will leave you spellbound. Hiking the Ausangate trail is to find peaceful contemplative moments and be into nature to feel its energy, as well as to mingle with locals rather than the tourist crowds. A hike through Ausangate is a test in stamina but the vistas of its rugged and mesmerizing wilderness are worth the climb. Here you will see the famed Ausangate mountain, red hills, highland wildlife, and Rainbow Mountain that will leave you even enthralled by the geological wonders of this landscape.

Close to this mountain range with a great view at the background of Ausangate, we begin our treks to Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain Treks making a complete loop for an absolute exploration of the gems of this wilderness of the Andes. From Upis, the head-trail we explore the spectacular Ausangate massif and colorful valleys, We hike to places that provide amazing views of the snow-capped mountains, lakes, eroded mountains, herds of llamas and alpacas with locals. Here, eroded peaks, lakes, and spires form impressive mountain vistas and stunning scenery. It’s how we create absolute mountain experiences for memorable adventures.

If we hike just the Rainbow Mountain in one day, We start our hike from the end of the road to the impressive Rainbow Mountain, we aim to get it as earlier as possible to avoid the crowds, leaving Cusco early in the dawn–Ausangate Trek to Rainbow Mountain.

Additional Information

Altitude

When you research altitude information about the Rainbow Mountain it’s usually to find 5,200 meters, but that elevation is too much exaggerated for this place and of course, that’s a wrong altitude information. The correct altitude for Rainbow Mountain is 5,050 meters / 16,568 feet, sometimes it may vary in 30 meters/ 98.4 feet on some GPS gadgets. The trail that follows around the Ausangate Mountain goes through different high passes, which are from 4,850 meters/ 15,912 feet to 5,000 meters/ 16,404 feet, and a couple of 5,200 meters/ 17,060 feet which are the highest passes along the trail. Hiking at this elevation requires making an extra effort and some shots of oxygen are very helpful and make sure you have that. Our hikes always come with an emergency horse and a muleteer that escort our travelers along the trail to reach the destination, where our travelers are free to ride or upload the daypacks, and our emergency horse comes with a super oxygen tank and a first aid kit.

The Vilcanota mountain range is one of the most sparsely populated regions on the planet and one of the most starkly beautiful, carved by giant mountains, towering glacier peaks, gorgeous lagoons, red hills, and home to highland animals like vicuña, alpaca that could make this place unique. It’s also a region where Aboriginal culture is still alive. On this footage, we show you just a tiny part of this wonderful place. Explore the area now, before big business encroaches further.
