Day 1: Cusco – Cusipata – Seven Color Mountain – Cusco

Early in the morning, according to scheduled time, our guide will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco to take you to Collasuyo, located in the south of the old capital of the Incas (Cusco), important part of the Tawantinsuyo (4 old regions of the Incas). Our first stop will be after 2h (78km), located in the community of Paucarpata (CUSIPATA) where we will rest a while and will be able to buy water or energizer, snacks, cereals, etc as well as enjoy our breakfast buffet style. After that we will continue driving on the road for about 1h, arriving at the base camp of PHULAWASIPATA, where we will prepare to a 2-hour uphill (3.5km) trekking. In this route we will be able to see the amazing glacier Hatun Ritti (4925m), the distinct varieties of South American camelids, and the beautiful reflex of the landscape along with Puka Qocha and Qomer Qocha lagoons.
When we arrive at the Colorful Mountain we will have enough time to take pictures of this enigmatic and incredible place. Then we will go back to our base camp, descending for about 1h30 (3.5km), where we will take our transport to Paucaparpata to enjoy our delicious lunch. Finally about 6pm we will be in the Imperial City of Cusco, where you will be taken to your hotel.
