    What to Expect
    You'll begin your day with an early pick-up from your hotel between 5:30 and 6:00 am. We will travel by car for approximately 2 hours to Cusipata-Paucarpata, where we will have an included breakfast. After breakfast, we will continue until the control point where we will observe the snowy peak, Wiñay Ritty (Forever Young).

    We will walk through beautiful landscapes until we reach the Rainbow Mountain (5020 meters above sea level). Here, we will enjoy all the colourful and magnificent views, including a panoramic view of the mountain of Seven Colors. You will have enough time to rest and take pictures. After that, we walk back to Llaqto, where our vehicle will be waiting for us and we will have lunch. After lunch, we will depart back to Cusco where we will arrive at approximately 6:30 pm. Your adventure comes to an end with a drop-off in central Cusco.
