Then, we will begin our upward trek of 7 kilometers that will last 4 hours, heading to the Vinicunca Mountain, also known as Siete Colores (Seven Colors), due to its chromatic variety; around us we will have spectacular views of the imposing snowy Apu Ausangate.
.After taking lots of pictures, we start our descending hike that will take 3 hours; on the way we will make a stop to enjoy our lunch and reach the starting point, Pampachiri.
