We will depart your hotel in Cusco very early in the morning with our guide in private transport driving through the Southern Valley en route to Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain (5040 mt).  Once we reach the town of Quessiuno,  continue to the starting point of your hike.  Walk on flat terrain for about 30 minutes but if the altitude affects you, the locals will rent out a horse that you can ride until getting to the first climb.  Climb for about 20 minutes catching your breath until you reach the platform which brings you close to the rainbow mountain and where you can have a hot coca tea before your last climb up for another 25 minutes stopping periodically to catch your breath. As you climb observe the stunning views of the mineral-covered Vinicunca Mountain and the spectacular vistas of the snow-capped Ausangate mountain looming over the rainbow mountain.  Once you reach the top you will celebrate your achievement and feel on top of the world. Wander around taking splendid pictures and admiring the surroundings.  Then it is time to retrace the trail back to your waiting transport to return to Cusco. En route, your guide will pick the perfect spot with amazing landscapes to have a picnic lunch.  Return to Cusco.
