The 7 Colors Mountain or Rainbow Mountain or more known by locals as Cerro Colorado, is located in Vinicunca, province of Quipicanchis, department of Cusco.
Its geological formations reveal all their splendor, in contrast to the blue sky forming a formidable barrier between the desert of the coast and the Amazon jungle, dominated by the beautiful snowy Ausangate (6,384 m), one of the great apus of this region.
The mountains of Vinicunca is one of the spectacular places of the Vilcanota mountain range, awaiting a natural coloration, this coloration is given by the presence of sedimentary stones in erosion. The impressive thing is how the stones have been formed to form a set of seven colors. The height of the mountain is approximately 5,000 meters above sea level.
