Vinicunca Mountain (Rainbow Mountain) in Cusco Peru is one of these places where travelers have yet to discover. A secret that has been kept so well there is no information about it. Soaring glacier peaks scrape the sky to the left. A valley plummets to the right. Front and center is a mound of earth striped with intense turquoise, rust red and golden yellow. The colors flow like a wave so perfectly that you would believe they were painted by the gods. The only way to get to this secret corner of the earth is the Ausangate Trek.
From our perch, the Andean winds gust wildly as if to prevent any mortal from staying too long in this unworldly place. It’s not an easy path but the views are the rewards for those who are up for the challenge of hiking day over high altitude passes. It’s a trail that cuts through a land seeped in legend. Wild, remote, beautiful and surreal. Nature is god here. Take a journey to this place and you will see why.
