“Dreams are not what you see in your sleep; they’re the reason you can’t sleep.”
This is an amazing option for those looking to get out of town for the day for a challenging, high-altitude hike that reaches elevation over 5000m/16000ft. Along the way, you will find unique wildlife and get close to the glacier of Ausangate, sitting comfortably at 6380m/20,926ft.
- We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 4:30am. After a three and a half hour drive, we will arrive in the village of Chillca (3,700/12,139ft) where we will have a light breakfast.
- From Chillca, we will walk* for approximately four hours uphill to the famous Rainbow Mountain where you will have amazing views of the red mountains and the famous Asungate glacier.
- After taking your time to enjoy the summit and a boxed lunch, we will begin our descent back down the same trail to Chillca. It will take less time to descend to Chillca than it took to climb up. Our van will be waiting there to take you back to your hotel in Cusco so you can have dinner at your leisure.
*You will have the option to take a horse or mule at any point for 70 soles (approximately $25) if you feel this trek is too challenging to complete by foot.
