Overview:

The beautiful Rainbow Mountain in Ausangate Region in Peru used to be a relatively unknown trek. It became very popular a couple of years ago. Rainbow Mountain in Peru is also known as Vinicunca, which means ‘rainbow’ in Quechua, the ancient Inca language of Peru. The mountain gets its name from the many different colours displayed in its mountain peaks; the colors are there, thanks to the minerals in the soil of the mountains.
