This trek offers a remote landscape experience through a spectacular mountain range. Located in the Andes of Peru in the Cusco region; Vinicunca, also known as 7 Colour Mountain was once covered in snow and ice for thousands of years; only recently, has the melting snow uncovered the rainbow mountain which has now become an exciting as well as popular area to explore.
