Upon reaching the viewpoint of Vinicunca or Montaña de Colores (5020 m / 16,466 ft.), our guide will give us a description about the orography, ecosystem and color of the mountain; we can also take a moment to take photos to remember and admire the beautiful landscape.

Then we will return by the same route to the point where we started the trek (Phulawasipata), where our transport will be waiting to take us back to Cusipata; here we will enjoy the buffet lunch. After lunch we will start the return trip to the city of Cusco, arriving between 4 and 5 in the afternoon. Then, we will drop you off at your hotel.
