One of the best recommended Cusco tours are Red Valley and Rainbow Mountain, during the journey you will be impressed to see unique landscapes, such as llamas, snow-capped peaks, red mountains, Andean houses, camel herders, an adventure that is definitely worth doing, once at the top you will be perplexed by the colors of the Vinicunca mountain, on the side you will see part of the red valley and if you turn around you will see the giant Ausangate (6,385 m.a.s.l.) the highest mountain in Cusco, the Vinicunca mountain is a product of the formation of the Andes. It is assumed that the Andes began to form about 120 million years ago when the Nazca tectonic plate slid under the continental shelf of South America, in a process called “subduction”, creating mountains and lifting marine sediments up to (5035 m.a.s.l). The marine sediment is presented in the form of layers, the layers contain minerals that over time oxidized creating a diversity of colors similar to those of the rainbow.
