Trip Itinerary

DAY 1: Cusco - Trailhead - Rainbow Mountain - Red Valley

Today the adventure takes to the Rainbow Mountain Cusco, We will start early in the morning at 3:30 A.m with a pick up from your hotel in our private transport, with a private guide. We will head out through the South Valley passing very quaint Andean towns to trailhead located at an elevation of 4,400 m / 14,432 ft,

We will then start hiking through the trail that winds up, following a lovely stream, with herds of llamas and alpacas with a private guide. Along the trail we’ll enjoy amazing views of the highest mountain in Cusco region, Ausangate Mountain (20,936 ft), and will marvel at traditionally-dressed women and the colorful textiles they spin before your eyes. Using the wool of alpacas, and llamas, the women create patterns using natural dyes that have existed in the Andes since the time of the Inca. In addition to the textiles, visitors have the chance to interact with local inhabitants, learning words in Quechua language.

After 1 hour and 30 minutes hiking or more, we will embrace this great natural formation of Rainbow Mountain Cusco (5,050 m / 16,564 ft). Our knowledgeable private guide leads us through the side of hills, recapping, and explaining the current theories regarding the purpose and significance of the colored hills, and we will take our time to shoot amazing photos.

Our next place to explore is the Red Valley, a stunning reddish valley with reddish hills, a must-see place after the Rainbow Mountain. Once we have enough time at this stunning place, we’ll walk for about one hour to get our transportation where we will take our picnic lunch. After enjoying our lunch, we will drive back to Cusco with some stops on the way. Packed lunch included

What Makes Us Different!… Here’s, Why You Should Book With Us!

Making a choice of your right travel company/ tour operator is the most important decision you will make as you make your plans for a long-anticipated dreamed adventure. At first glance, some companies may seem cheaper. However, when you research a little deeper, you will see why traveling with Peru Summit Adventures assures that you will have the most memorable travel experience possible. In fact, we guarantee it, our TripAdvisor reviews say that.

Making genuine and sustainable itineraries often translate to real costs, with a host of responsible travel practices that underpin our prices, here are the reasons why you should go with us!


Little insignificant details make all the difference to get a successful trip and an unforgettable experience, that’s the point where our tailor-made trip specialists and destination experts work intensely. No stone is left unturned in our quest to deliver exceptional private tours, trekking tours, and expeditions in Peru. With us, it’s all about you and your traveling mates too, for sure! We take your wants, needs, time constraints, budgets, and personal travel style into account to deliver experiences that are far from standard.

Safety is at the core of everything we do at Peru Summit Adventures. There is nothing that we take more seriously. Put away your concerns and start enjoying the trip of your life knowing that you are on safe and sound hands. Peru Summit Adventures is a registered trademark and a licensed company by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism (MINCETUR).
What an awesome to travel with someone who is from the same destination, a professional expert, it’s how you get the first-hand information. Our Peru Summit Adventures staff are friendly, funny, with deep knowledge on the route and destination, and great storytellers. We love what we do and it’s obvious. A simple concept, yes, but it makes all the difference. The team at Peru Summit Adventures all live and breathe the trip, experience, adventure, (you’ll see this when you arrive!). We love what we do, and it’s obvious. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel the buzz and excitement that Peru Summit Adventures offers.
Could you imagine trying to hike silently along an isolated trail, carefully not disturbing shy wildlife, with 10 or 20 other travelers? Or walking on a remote area to explore the pristine wilderness with dozens of other tourists at your side? We know meaningful nature encounters must be undertaken in small groups. That’s why our trips come with an average of just four travelers, by far the smallest groups in the tourism industry across the country. This not only guarantees you more personal close-up wildlife experience, but a less-impact presence on the earth’s brittle natural places we love.

We are very confident the quality of our Rainbow Mountain Trek will get your expectations and that you will savor the best possible of cultural travel experience, nature travel experience, and adventure travel experience if you are dissatisfied, we’ll happily give you credit for an extra trip or for a future journey. It’s, to our knowledge, the best guarantee in the travel business.

We don’t believe any other tour companies make comparable trips when you take into account our unique itineraries and signature itineraries, impressive locations, small groups and quality Trek Leaders / Tour Leaders. But, should you come across a similar itinerary or matching itinerary of our quality at a cheaper price, even within 45 days after booking with us, we will happily refund the difference. It’s how we deliver our promise.
While other tour companies generally cancel their trips due to low participation of travelers or pass their travelers to other big groups tour operators, we guarantee that we will never cancel a trip because of low signing-up or participation for the departure date neither get our travelers to other tour operators! This makes to our travelers the assurance and peace of mind to know their travel plans are insured and guaranteed.

Probably you will see that most of the tour operators mention it on their websites that are local tour companies, however, if you research a little deeper you will find out that’s not true, they might be although half of the operation is done from here and another half abroad, they even have NorthAmerican phone number or European phone numbers, which is a clue to find out, we are not against the foreigner companies or half foreign companies, what we are against is that they lie.

In Cusco exist just few truly local tour operators. If you did not know, foreign companies come to Peru to get rich without paying a General Sales Tax or Tax Contribution to our country. If you did not know that, according to the United Nations, for every US $100 spent on a tour in a developing country or foreign travel companies, only $5 stays in the local economy. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. As we are a local family enterprise, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians through contributing to general sales tax. 

Be a responsible traveller! Let’s make this world a better place for everyone and for everyone that lives in it! The natural environments that we travel to are fragile and abundant with beautiful culture and traditions that are often reliant on tourism. We have a responsibility as travelers to minimize the impact of our presence, protect what is delicate, and leave a positive influence everywhere we can.

As a locally owned and based Peruvian tour company, we integrate these practices into our in-country operations we are aiming for a style of travel that makes the world a better place for everyone, and for everyone that lives in it. Since our very first days as a tour operator, responsible business has been at the heart of what we do. Peru Summit Adventures is committed not just to treading lightly, but to making a real difference by helping and investing in local communities, education initiatives, environmental conservation projects. These values are not more than just words, they are ingrained in the culture and philosophy of our crew, daily operations of Peru Summit Adventures trips, and at our office too.

Whats the Trip Like

 
A super delicious packed lunch will be provided (lunch box/packed lunch) with an option for vegetarians, gluten free, and lactose free with a nice hot Coca tea

At some points on the trail, there are squat toilets for PEN 1.00 ( 1 Sol).
Best time to go is from mid-April to October, we still operate in November, and March, hikers should expect some rains and snow in these months. We do not operate our trips in December, January, and February as the rainfall is very strong, which makes very difficult the access, and it’s not possible to see the Rainbow Mountain.
