    What to Expect
    Your day will start at 3:40am departing from your Cusco hotels to Quessiuno. Enjoy a breakfast at Quessiuno.
    After breakfast, continue your journey uphill for 3 hours where you'll enjoy landscapes full of flora and fauna.
    It'll take between 3 to 4 hours average to arrive to the Rainbow Mountain. There will be adequate time to capture this magical place in photos, memories, and enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain and the sacred snow-capped Ausangate.
    After enjoying time at the Rainbow Mountain, start making your way downhill to Quessiuno for lunch. Following this leisurely and well-deserved lunch, return to the city of Cusco. 7pm is our approximate arrive time in Cusco's Regocijo Square, which is one block away from the main square.
