One day trip to the stunning Rainbow Mountain

The newly discovered Rainbow Mountain is the most eye-catching freak of nature, you will ever come across. There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world. It stands tall (elevation:5 020 meters/17 060feet) in its uniqueness with many vibrant colors. These astonishingly striking colors are formed by weathering, environmental conditions and sedimentary mineral deposits over time. Nestled in the Andes mountains in the South Valley of Cusco, with spectacular views of the snow-capped Ausangate Mountain.

The hike takes you through some secluded communities. Here, you may interact with the indigenous people who are still keeping their culture alive and speak their indigenous language of Quechua!

You will see snowcapped peaks, herds of llamas, glaciers and turquoise lakes, all set within an incredibly colorful mountain range. The Rainbow Mountain trek offers a selection of wildlife including soaring condors, cara cara falcons, and perhaps bobcats or pumas, if you’re lucky. The colorful sandstone mountains in the area are probably the coolest and most unique natural phenomenon you will ever see.

Our one-day tour to Rainbow Mountain includes a hot breakfast and lunch cooked by our amazing chefs. We transfer you in our modern vans from your hotel lobby, to the trailhead and back. Our groups are small and intermate and never exceed 8 people. We have trained all our guides to deal with altitude sickness. They carry an oxygen tank with them at all times incase its needed. As an added bonus Sam Corporations includes an optional hike to the nearby Red Valley. The Red Valley looks like a picture straight out of Mars.

The strikingly beautiful turquoise Humantay Lake

Humantay Lake is an incredible turquoise lake that is situated at the base of the glacier covered Vilcabamba Mountain Range. It gets its name from the majestic Humantay Mountain (5 473m/ 17 956ft) that towers above it. Humantay Lake will treat you to the most amazing and breathtaking views. Nature lovers of different fitness levels typically enjoy and appreciate the picturesque Humantay Lake. On arrival you are immediately enveloped by this sense of calm and peace.

You can choose different ways to visit the lake, including multiple-day treks. If you are strapped for time than the 1-day Humantay Trek is the perfect hike for you. Its also ideal if hiking for miles before being privy to the gems of the Andes Mountains is not your thing.

Thousands of tourists and locals make their way here during the month of February.

Puno is located on cold high plains at 4000 m. above sea level. The city also known as the land of camelidae, was the home to the Tiahuanaco culture many thousands of years ago.

It mostly has buildings made of adobe and roofs covered with metal panels. The city center is small. If you want to experience a bit of the nightlife then head over to Jiron Lima, where you will find different restaurants and vibey spots with great music.

Amantaní island is located at 36 kilometers from the port of Puno. This island is scattered with lush vegetation. A great place to visit, with plenty of natural viewpoints of the lake, islands and mountains that surround it.

They locals navigate their traditional boats also made from totora reeds, creating a unique and interesting way of life. The residents of Taquile, Suasi, and Amantaní are known for their kindness, ancestral weaving skills, pre-Columbian constructions, and sprawling countryside.
