Rainbow Mountain, or the mountain of 7 colors, is one of the most beautiful and impressive tourist attractions here in Cusco. The mountain is located in Vinicunca on the road to the Ausangate mountain which is about 3 hours driving from Cusco.

Rainbow Mountain’s colors are due to its mineralogical composition and are rich in minerals. The mountain formation is over 10 million years old.
