Once at the top, our Seven Colors Mountain Tour Guide will give a brief information about this beautiful natural formation.

According to some geologists from the Geological Society of Peru, the Vinincunca mountain, like many other mountains in the great Cordillera de los Andes was formed by the movement of tectonic plates that raised marine sediments to impressive mountains.

On the other hand, the coloration that Vinincunca presents is the result of the oxidation of some minerals due to the action of erosion, humidity and other geological factors.

At some point in our history, the mountain was covered with blocks of ice: it was a snowy mountain. However, due to the effects of global warming and climate change, the ice disappeared and left in its place this magical landscape that shows us the ecological beauty and fragility of planet Earth.

After receiving our information and time to visit the mountain and take our photos on this Mountain of Seven Colors tour we will take the same way back to our mobility and later return for 1 hour to the district of CUSIPATA, community of PAUCARPATA to be able to have our lunch in our restaurant. 2:00 pm a We will have lunch. 2:00 pm.
