Rainbow Mountain Cusco Peru
This is Dan from Vagabond Buddha. While in Cusco, you must see the Rainbow Mountain.
How did the mountain get rainbow colors? The terrain was once parallel to the ground and the various colored sediments formed at different times in layers, each a different color. The red is iron, the green is grass and chlorites, the white is granite, the brown is oxidized limonite, and the yellows are sulfides. The ground then moved perpendicular to the earth’s surface to create rainbow mountains.
Here is my video of our Rainbow Mountain Tour. If you book my recommended flights, tours, or accommodations, you will pay nothing extra, but I will earn a small commission. This will help me continue to travel and share with you.
Here are the tours available in Cusco including Rainbow Mountain and others. I recommend using either Viator Cusco Tours or Get Your Guide Cusco Tours. These are tour aggregators. That means they just publish tours conducted by third parties. Some tours are better than others. So you need to read the reviews. Look for a tour that has at least 5 reviews that sound good, and 2 of those reviews should be within the last few months.
