The Heavenly Rainbow Mountains Trek

The beautiful Rainbow Mountain at dawn

The Rainbow Mountain Trek is one of the most spectacular, and new, off-the-beaten-path multi-day treks in the Andean mountains. Just four hours outside of Cusco Peru, this trail is breath-taking the entire way. Be prepared to be awed by snow-capped mountains, glacial peaks, never-ending mountain vistas, traditional villages, hot springs, and the beautiful striated rainbow mountains! You’ll also see llamas, alpacas, chinchillas, and maybe even vicuña and condors if you’re lucky. Because it’s a remote trail you won’t run into too many other trekkers. This is true pristine wilderness camping at it’s best. At 52km/32.3miles, with summits up to 5050m/16,568ft, this trail is not for the couch potato. The best time to go is between March and November and is a true adventurer’s dream. Check out how we’ve expanded our Rainbow Mountains Trek here!

The Stunning Ancascocha Trek

The remote and glorious Ancascocha Trek

The ANCASCOCHA TREK is a spectacular trail that is beautiful, strenuous, and truly deserving of the phrase off the beaten path trekking. This trek takes 5 days/4 nights and ends in Machu Picchu on the 5th day. Ancascocha is quite challenging due to the altitude gain, high altitude hiking and camping, 7 steep summits, and length of hiking: 56 km/34.8 miles and goes up to 4,959m/16,270ft. The Ancascocha Trek, also known as the Hidden Inca Trail or the Super Inca Trail, is a strenuous and less traveled trek. If you’re looking for off the beaten path trails, pristine wilderness, and a challenging trek, this is the one for you! National Geographic named Ancascocha Trail as one of the World’s 20 Best Hikes!
