Ausangate Trek with Vinicunca 3 Days 2 Nights

Vinicunca –The Rainbow Mountain

It was only a few years ago that this incredible rainbow mountain in Peru called Vinicunca became known to the whole world. Standing at a massive 5050 metres, this impressive mountain can be found at approximately 100 km from the city of Cusco and within the same Andean mountain range as the Sacred Ausangate mountain. This mountain range is spread between 2 communities called Pitumarca y Cusipata found within the Cusco region. Vinicunca possesses a spectacular panorama amongst its geographical matrices that decorate the horizon and it is impossible to put into words the natural beauty of this magical place. Come with us and discover this enchanting rainbow mountain itinerary, especially organised by Ausangate Trekking Peru.

The APU AUSANGATE: The Cordillera Vilcanota can be found in the mountain range 100 Km south of Cusco and form part of the Andean mountain range in Peru. This Sacred mountain or “Apu” as it is known locally, reaches 6,384 metres in elevation. The area is inhabited by farming communities, who’s livestock are the native llamas and alpacas, domesticated many years ago. These communities are one of the few remaining societies of high altitude farming that remain in the world.

The Ausangate circuit is one of the most famous mountain treks in the region of Cusco. The natural geography of the land and the warmth of its’ people, will make this hike a unique and unforgettable experience. The never-ending glaciers, the colourful lagoons and the picturesque valleys are home to an array of wildlife that includes chinchillas, vicuñas, Andean foxes and condors, as well as the famous rainbow mountain of Vinicunca.
