Day1 - Cusco - Rainbow Mountain - Cusco
Early Pick up from your Cusco hotel at 04:30 am. We leave for the rainbow mountain, on the way we will make a brief stop in the town of Oropesa where we will visit a handmade baking oven. Oropesa is a bakery city. It is famous for it's giant, sweet and tasty "chutas". A large part of Oropesanos is dedicated to the bakery industry, an industry of which they have made a whole art, art that has been transmitted from generation to generation, from parents to children. In the district, there are more than fifty furnaces, after 3 hours and 30 minutes accompanied by a spectacular panoramic view with canyons, native villages, alpacas and llamas grazing in the mountains we will arrive at the starting point of our hike which is over 4500 meters. We will prepare our day backpacks and snacks, then we need only 1-hour hike to reach this famous mountain, on the top of the mountain it is quite cold because it runs icy winds, so I recommend bring a warm jacket, wool hat and gloves if you want to appreciate the beauty of the mountain without any discomfort.
We will spend approximately 30 - 50 minutes at the top before starting our hike downhill to the point we started. As soon as we arrive to the foot of the mountain we relax a few minutes before our car will bring us back to Cusco.
