Other Practical InformationFULL DAY: CUSCO – QUESIUNO – VINICUNCA – QUESIUNO – CUSCO We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and head south from Cusco through the beautiful landscapes of valleys and agricultural communities. This route to the community of Quesiuno (4,326m / 14,192 ft) will take about 3 hours. Upon arriving the community, we will have a delicious breakfast prepared by our chef. After breakfast, we will begin our hike, following a beautiful creek through a portal in between the mountains, accompanied by our first views of Ausangate, the fifth highest peak of Peru. Along the way, we will pass through herds of hundreds of alpacas and llamas and the occasional shepherd or local people moving about their daily activities. Our total ascent will last about 4 hours, which brings us to our final destination and highest point on our trek, Vinicunca or Rainbow Mountain (5,020 mts / 16,466 ft), or, as we like to call it, Apu Ausangate’s Poncho! Here we will stop to admire and appreciate the outstanding views in all directions and the rare geological formations that appear to be painted with several exotic colors. Far below and into the distance are infinite valleys and glaciers as far as one can see. We will stop for about 30 minutes – the perfect amount of time to rest, to have a snack, and immerse yourself in this wild environment before we must begin our descent, roughly three hours. Upon arrival at the trailhead, our chef will be waiting with a delicious hot lunch. We will have time after lunch to visit some of the local households and observe the lifestyle and customs that are still being practiced today since Inca times. Here the native language of Quechua is spoken and agriculture is essential for life. At the end of the day, our tour will conclude with an opportunity to meet with local people from the community before making our journey back to Cusco in our private van. We will leave you back at your hotel around 7:00 p.m. Meals: Continental Breakfast / snacks / fresh lunch Lowest Altitude: 4,326 m / 14,189 ft Highest Altitude: 5,020 m / 16,466 ft Distance: 15 km / 9 ¼ mi Travel time: 4-5 hours ascent; 3-4 hours descent Level of Difficulty: Very Challenging
