What to Expect
Route of the Sun: It's an amazing way to travel In the Andes of Peru. Travel from Cusco to Puno or Puno to Cusco. Enjoy the landscapes, stunning views, enrich yourself with a cultural immersion and the most impressive attractions offered. The trip starts from the Cusco or Puno Puno and takes almost 400 km between them.

The Exclusive private service includes one stop at La Raya - beautiful Andean view, to relax and stretch the legs. But after this we will visit the most important attraction of the day the awesome Rainbow Mountain of Palccoyo where you will be able to enjoy the natural attractions of the three rainbows mountain over the Andes. Great natural colors provided by sediments and minerals of the area. The walk grants some spectacular views of the range , every 100 meters another gorgeous red or green valley or unique rock formation is to be seen, this is another advantage over vinicunca; you won´t just see one beautiful multi – coloured  mountain; but many.


05:00am the tour will start very early in the morning. our team will look for you at your hotel to pick you up and start the tour.

07:45am – 08:00am we will make our first stop at the point known as the raya pass, where we can take some amazing photos, besides being able to breathe and relax the legs. Then we will continue by route and then make our ascent towards the mountain of colors of the valley of Palccoyo. 09:00am – 09:30am from the head of the trail (4850m/15912ft), we ascend for 45 minutes to 1 hour (1km) to our view point (5, 000m / 16,404ft.). Here are the most unique views of AUSANGATE (highest snowcapped mountain of Cusco 6375m/20915ft) and the three Rainbow Mountain laying across one another parading their unique color formations exposing their internal history for us to see. How fortunate we are to be out of the crowds in our own space to obsorb this treasured and personal experience. Take time to explore the area and relax. 

11:00am after the amazing painted landscapes we will drive straight to Cusco  or Puno to be dropped off in your selected hotel. 

14:00pm – 15:00pm you will be dropped off in your selected place or hotel in Cusco or Puno
