Trip yo Chillca: Our Starting Point

Along the way, you will experience a fascinating sensation hiking through the Andes gems, glacial peaks, red mountains, rocky hills, and traditional llamas and alpacas grazing along the valley.

At the top of the Rainbow Mountain, you’ll find splendid views of the valley, crowned by the Ausangate snow peak in the distance (altitude: 6,400m/21,000ft), part of the Vilcanota Mountain Range.

Your tour guide will bring you hot drinks while he explains about the mineral composition of the soil that makes the mountain so special.
