To the south of Cusco’s City is Ausangate snowing, where we can find beautiful lagoons of different colors and sizes, in addition to the American camelids such as llamas, alpacas, and Vicuñas.

It is in this place, where one of the most beautiful natural attractions is located, the Rainbow Mountain or Vinicunca Mountain, which thanks to social networks became one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in Cusco.

Ausangate Mountain is beautiful, but there are two points on Rainbow Mountain Peru that are wonderful: the Pucacocha viewpoint and Rainbow mountain viewpoint and the red valley.
