2 Day Ausangate red Lake plus Rainbow Mountain

The best way to spend your time in Cusco is trekking to unknown places, Vino Cocha (wine – red lake) is one of those places to trek, and it can be combined with the Rainbow Mountain in 2 Days. As Palccoyo Trek or Perolniyoc Waterfall, this route is also totally off the tourist track. The Vino Cocha lagoon, is one of the most outstanding lagoons of the Vilcanota mountain range, because of its colorful formation, it makes travelers fall in love with this amazing place.

The Ausangate Red Lake, is located at over 4.780 m.a.s.l. At the base of the Ausangate Mountain and Santa Catalina, the origin of the reddish color at this lake, it is due to the high concentration of minerals, especially iron, which oxidizes due to contact with water.

At agreed time, we come and pick you up from your hotel in Cusco, to then drive for about 3.5 hours to the Comunity of Huchuy Phynaya, where our cook, will prepare a nutritious breakfast to start with the hike, the path is uphill for 2 hours and on the trail, we will see some herd of llamas and alpacas close to us, and pretty scenic views. The pretty scenic views around the Ausangate Red Lake will be undeniably beautiful, that will make us feel in a different world.

After we will descend to the starting point of our hike, where our cook will be waiting for us with the delicious lunch, subsequently we will drive to the community of Hanchipacha for 40 min, where our team will set up your tents,  in the evening we will enjoy our tea time and dinner.

Next, we visit the Red valley of Rainbow Mountain, for that, we will make the last effort hiking up for 30 minutes from rainbow mountain, this spectacular Red Valley is a chain of streams and mountains that show a unique natural reddish pigment due to the abundance of mineral and that shows this spectacular landscape that was already considered one of the potential attractions of the Cusco region.
