    Invited to hear this magical place... Vinicunca mountain or Hill of 7 colors. Starting from Cusco to 2 hrs 30 min you reach the District of Pitumarca. Continue on foot. Walk 5km place showing the beautiful landscape... magical... wind cold but very cool. They can do the walk in 1 day. Or if you want more adventure you can stay a night camping. Beautiful place! You can observe the Ausangate... fifth highest mountain in Peru with more than 6000 meters above sea level...
