Rainbow Mountain is located at 5 200 meters above sea level (around 17,000 feet). That’s 2 770 meters higher than Machu Picchu which has an elevation of 2 430 meters. Although it’s twice as difficult to trek some say it’s the most beautiful!

Millions of travelers  flock to the Andean country every year to see the  Inca citadel Machu Picchu — but in 2015, a newly discovered geological wonder was added to the country’s list of must-see destinations.
Vinicunca — also known as the Rainbow Mountain ,  was discovered four years ago when the snow covering it melted, revealing the natural beauty of the rock beneath. Formed by weathering, environmental conditions and sedimentary deposits over time, the mountain’s unique minerology created a marbling effect, with layered hues of gold, lavender, red and turquoise towering into the sky
