Vinicunca Mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain, is a spectacular sight to see. It's a challenging day hike, with a round trip distance of 9.5 miles. It's not the distance that makes it a challenge, though, it's the altitude. Starting at an elevation of 14,189 ft, and ending at 16,466 ft, breathing is a serious challenge, and you tire extremely fast. This is the first and only time I was thankful that I have an injured knee - I was able to ride a horse the whole way.
Look at all those colors! Hard to believe this is natural.
DOUBLE RAINBOW!!! (If you don't get it, you've been missing out)
Chau little man.
