Rainbow Mountain tour – Cusco, Peru
This place is one of the magical and unique places in the world, where the magic of a geological formation stands out that with time and deglaciation is being born in the Peruvian Andes. Being on this summit is unique and magical because it is to feel the air free and pure, even at a height of 5010 meters above sea level. It is to put your strength and courage to your spirit to be with Pachamama and the mountains.
