Local Living and living culture experience!
This itinerary is closely linked with the local people since in this wonderful expedition we will combine two unforgettable experiences, we will share breakfast and dinner with local families in Conchacalla and T´umi community, on the other hand, we will enjoy the landscape that nature offers us, rock formations, logans, snow mountains, canyons, archeological centers, rainbow mountain, wildlife on the Andes.
Choosing this tour, you are helping us with the direct support to one of our social project call Colours of Peru.
In this program we will take you through the following destinations:
* In Waqrapukara: In this non-touristy place, you will barely trust your eyes. For the incredible landscape that you have in front of your eyes. That looks like the backdrop of a science fiction movie!
* In Rainbow Mountain: To reach the top of this mountain, we will take the less crowded trail to avoid the crowd, also we will have the best views of the landscape.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Early Pick up from you Hotel at 05:00 am, then we will continue by our private van to Conchacalla community, where we will share a traditional and typical breakfast with a local family, we will have the opportunity to talk a bit about their activities, so we will see how they produce Andean cheese by traditional way, then we will continue our journey by car 40 more minutes till the hike start point, from here we will hike for around 2 hour and 20 minutes more or less. When you will see the first pictures of Waqrapukara, after 40 minutes downhill, you will barely trust your eyes. For the incredible landscape that you have in front of your eyes. That looks like the backdrop of a science fiction movie! this archaeological site is real and exists since Inca times, over 4,140 meters in an unreally beautiful landscape, along the trail you will have the privilege of being able to see vicuñas in their natural habitat, with a bit more luck we can see some condors flying over the sky. On this 6-hour hike, you will cross a 4,400-meter-high pass, wandering along Andean lagoons, past lush Ichu grass, once we get back we will go directly to T´umi community by our private van where our Dinner will be waiting for us ready, we will share an organic dinner with another local family.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
At 07:00am after Breakfast with the family, we will continue our journey to Rainbow Mountain, after 2 hours driving accompanied by a spectacular panoramic view with canyons, native villages, alpacas and llamas grazing in the mountains we will arrive at the starting point of our hike which is over 4500 meters and the top of the Rainbow mountain is 5020 meters. We will prepare our day backpacks and snacks, then we need only 1-hour hike to reach this famous mountain, on the top of the mountain it is quite cold because it runs icy winds, so I recommend bring a warm jacket, wool hat and gloves if you want to appreciate the beauty of the mountain without any discomfort.
We have around 30 - 50 minutes to enjoy the beauty of this stunning place. You have two highlights in front of you. A panoramic view towards the Vinicunca mountain with its natural spectacular colors, then when turning 180 degrees, you will have the sight of the prominent snowy mountain of Ausangate. Then 30 more minutes hike to reach the impressive red valley, which is located behind the Rainbow Mountain. You will simply fall in love with this place, it is a natural wonder, that you will not believe it exists. After taking photos, we will hike downhill to the point we started. As soon as we arrive at the foot of the mountain we relax a few minutes before our car will bring us to the local restaurant for our lunch, then back to Cusco.
