Tour Information

7 Colors Mountain

This amazing place is located in the Andes of Peru, in the department of Cusco and province of Canchis, at 5,200 meters above sea level, an area of considerable elevation. It belongs to the town of Pitumarca who call it the 'Cerro Colorado'. Because it is located on the way to the imposing Ausangate snow-capped peak, this site was known long before by adventurers who dared to make the trek.

Why is it called that?

According to various investigations carried out at the site, the multicolored hues are due to the different minerals that cover the area in layers: red clay and mud (pink), clay (red), sandstone (white), marl (lavender), clay and copper oxide (green) and limonites (brownish yellow). These natural substances began to form 65 million years ago when water and rain covered its slopes and summits. With the passing of time, the extreme climate melted the snow that formed there, revealing to the world what is today one of Cusco's most important tourist attractions.
