Ausangate Trek Rainbow Mountain

Max 8 peopleStrenuous difficulty Beginner experience


Away from the crowds of the Inca Trail, experience this relatively undiscovered Ausangate Trek which leads you up to the incredible "Rainbow Mountain", which was discovered for tourism only about 6 years ago! Given the high altitude of this trek, we highly recommend acclimatization for at least 2 days prior to going on this trek. You may want to look into our Inca trail with rainbow mountain and humantay lake trip option.

Day 1: Cusco– Pukutuni School – Pucaccocha (10 miles, 1,300 feet elevation gain, campsite at 15,100 feet)

Pick up will be at 4 AM, and it will be a three-hour drive to the trailhead at Pukutuni School. Here you will enjoy some breakfast and meet your crew: chef, porters, and horses men. It will be a three-hour hike until your lunch spot at Upis village, in the skirt of Ausanagte Mountain. After lunch, you will climb for another 1.5 hours uphill to the first pass called Vicuña Pass (4850 meters / 15,900 feet) and then approximately 3 hours to your evening campsite at Pucaccocha. All along the way, there are stunning views of the valleys, waterfalls, and glacier peaks.
