Rainbow Mountain Hike

Have you ever wanted to venture to a faraway place where you can practically hear the gods rumbling with a thunderclap in the sky? Come to Peru’s sacred mountains to give your mind, body and soul a break from the daily grind. It is hard to go back to the real world once you’ve seen the sun splash its radiance over the Sandstone Mountains in Peru’s Vinicunca region. Seize the chance to journey through an undiscovered terrain full of wild desert landscapes and snow-capped peaks that reach into heaven. As you pass through lush, emerald-colored valleys, you’ll be inspired by views of Ausangate Mountain standing like a god-carved monolith in the distance. Of course, all of this will lead up to the exiting moment when you first spot the colored minerals that formed the painted hills you’re walking through.
